BandRockAmericana

Biography

With a passel of rootsy songs about whiskey, women, heartache and interstate highways Truckstop Coffee cranks out a reviving take on the road-worn genre of Americana/whatever-u-call-it rock 'n roll. Named after the powerful stuff that helps keep you between the lines on those long lonely drives, this young, do-it-yourself, four-piece combines overdriven tube amps, twangy guitars, and rough-hewn vocals for a vintage sound that'll break your heart and sew it up again with steel strings.

In their six years together, Truckstop Coffee has torn through hundreds of shows and had a whole lot of fun making good friends and fans. Additionally, the boys have had the good fortune to open for the likes of ...

Through plenty of blood, sweat, and backbreak, TSC has earned a reputation for delivering honest, urgent performances everywhere they play.

When the band's not touring, singer/guitarist Pete Stein is nearly always on the road.

"...the band draws on elements of honky-tonk, barroom balladry and highway-driving licks to weave a tapestry of Americana as worn as an old quilt stitched by a Southern grandmother and just as comfortable as one, too."
- Steve Wildsmith (Knoxville Daily Times)

"Call it alt-country, Americana, roots-rock -- whatever. It's good music, period, whether you're on the road to El Paso or on the subway to Manhattan."
- Jason Budjinsky (Palm Beach/Broward New Times)

"Truckstop Coffee plants one foot in country and another one firmly in rock... The quartet revels in the rapid-fire, rockin' side of alt-country."
- Dan Sweeney (City Link Magazine)
