RT N’ THE 44s is a Folk Noir Country band created by singer/songwriter RT Valine. Founded in 2009, the band originated in Los Angeles, CA . Using instruments crafted from tin, 2×4’s and salvaged parts, RT has stated that RT N’ THE 44s was born out of “an attempt to make listenable music from junk."
They have been described as a “vintage country band with dark obsessions." In the tradition of Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston the band is often seen busking at various locations throughout Los Angeles. As members of the New LA Folkfest the band has performed with T-Model Ford, Tom Brosseau, John C. Reilly, and Red Simpson, among other notable acts. RT N’ THE 44s performs annually at The Roots Roadhouse Festival and Autry National Center.
This is their full-length debut on 12" vinyl released on New High Recordings. Release poster included!
