    The Band

    The Federales: Classic country for the modern world.

    We're not from the Black Hills, the Texas Panhandle, or Appalachia. We're from the Twin Cities. Damn proud of it, too, but we play country music, because it's one of America's native languages.

    We use it to tell our stories of love, good times, Grain Belt, and friends. Some are fact. Some are fiction with the truth hiding in there somewhere. All of them are heartfelt.

    We're pickers, fiddlers, groovers, and harmonizers. We're ready to make you sing along, get up and dance, or just sit and tap your toes. We're The Federales.

    “Don’t let my disdain for what I call 'beard-rock' fool you — man, I fucking love country, and I love when it’s done right. And I’m gonna say: The Federales, from what I can tell, tick every god-damn box possible."
    — l'etoile Magazine

    "Heartbroken lyrics sound like they’d fit right in at a summertime backyard party."
    — The Current
