The Mexican Standoff

The Mexican Standoff


Combining haunting, gritty folk melodies with the driving, intense rhythms of contemporary British Rock, The Mexican Standoff presents a new flavor of intelligent and dramatic music. Radiohead meets Johnny Cash aptly describes the music's rugged romantic energy and stylized story-telling quality.


Jacob Richter is no stranger to the spotlight. His old band, Sara Somebody, made regular appearances in Canada's top music clubs, and was featured in several national television and radio spots. Jacob Richter is also a trained, professional actor with experience in feature films, and on the New York City stage.


The Mexican Standoff's The Drift is slated for use in the upcoming feature film, Kings, in which Jacob Richter plays the lead role. A full-length album is expected by Christmas of 2006.
