With its latest album, “Fortune Favors The Bold,” Russell County, Virginia-based 49 Winchester is ready and roaring to break onto the national scene with its unique brand of tear-in-your-beer alt-country, sticky barroom floor rock-n-roll, and high-octane Appalachian folk.

“As we’ve aged and matured, our sound has gone from a softer place to this grittier, edgier tone that we have now,” says lead singer/guitarist Isaac Gibson. “So, we’re trending more towards being a rock band instead of a country band. But, at the same time, I don’t think anybody’s ever known quite what to call it.” 

Although it’s 49 Winchester’s fourth studio album, “Fortune Favors The Bold” marks its debut for Nashville’s New West Records — one of the premier labels for Americana, indie and rock acts on the cutting edge of sound, scope and spectacle.

Formed eight years ago on Winchester Street in the small mountain town of Castlewood, Virginia (population: 2,045), the band started as a rag tag bunch of neighborhood teenagers who just wanted to get together for the sake of playing together.

Aside from Gibson, there’s also his childhood friend, bassist Chase Chafin, alongside other Castlewood cronies — guitarist Bus Shelton, and Noah Patrick on pedal steel.

“From day one, it’s always been a band and it will always be about being a band. This is everything, everything we love about music — we’re going for broke with this thing,” says Gibson. “And that gives us a unique perspective because it’s still the same guys. It’s still all of us from Castlewood traveling around, playing music and making this band a reality — this is a story of growth.”

Heartfelt Appalachian folk songs meet heavy country blues. Making their beginnings in the small town of Castlewood, Virginia as an acoustic trio, 49 Winchester was well received into the region's strong culture of grassroots music. Combining the poetic & heartfelt lyrics of singer/guitarist Isaac Gibson with both traditional & modern influences, they quickly gained momentum & released their debut self-titled album on Tennessee based Gold Ship Records in the spring of 2014. With an added rhythm section and the band has toured the east with their melodic blend of high energy folk rock. 49 Winchester has stayed true to their their roots & is making a name in the world of Americana music. The band's unmistakable realness shines through their live performance. Isaac / Bus / Chase / Chad / Dillon Booking: 49winchester@gmail.com
