About The Show Ponies

A spirited indie-folk troupe with Olde Tyme Country tendencies, the Show Ponies were founded in 2011 by Clayton Chaney (vocals, bass) and Andi Carder (vocals, banjo). Citing a diverse array of influences, including the Stanley Brothers, Queen, Roger Miller, the Weepies, Dawes, Bob Dylan, and the Punch Brothers, and hailing from the equally divergent locales of Arkansas, Texas, and California, the duo eventually expanded into a five-piece, adding guitarist Jason Harris, violinist Phil Glenn, and drummer Kevin Brown, all of whom were classically trained. Harris served as the producer on the group's 2012 debut album Here We Are!, which drew praise from both the folk and country communities, as did 2013's We're Not Lost. The quintet collaborated with Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers) on their 2014 EP Run for Your Life, and in 2016 they introduced elements of gospel, rock, and R&B on their much anticipated third studio long-player, How It All Goes Down, which was produced by Andy Freeman (Eisley, Manchester Orchestra) and released via E1 Entertainment. ~ James Christopher Monger
