Absolutely in love with the voice and the album.

Excellent Work

agonzas,

There aren't many artists that put the heart, soul, and personal influence into their music like this band. Great songwriting and simple, rootsy compositions make this album and their overall body of work truly inspirational. Thanks for coming to SouthSounds!!

Amazing!

AUDrumline,

I heard them live and I fell in love! The sound is so unique and hard to find.

About Hurray for the Riff Raff

New Orleans-based indie folk outfit Hurray for the Riff Raff was formed by singer/songwriter/banjo player Alynda Lee Segarra, a Bronx-raised Puerto Rican troubadour who left home at 17 to ride the rails and eventually landed in the Big Easy. After honing her skills on the washboard with a gang of train-yard musicians called the Dead Man's Street Orchestra, she picked up the banjo that a close friend had given her and began writing her own songs. While Segarra, drummer/violinist Yosi Pearlstein, and bass player David Maclay served as the foundation for Hurray for the Riff Raff's signature blend of folk-blues and Southern gothic Americana, the trio was often rounded out by a rotating cast of accordion, guitar, organ, and musical saw players.

The band self-released its first two full-lengths, 2008's It Don't Mean I Don't Love You and 2010's Young Blood Blues. An eponymous third full-length arrived in 2011 on the Loose Music label. Look Out Mama arrived in 2012, followed by a move to ATO Records in 2014 for Small Town Heroes. On their sixth full-length album, 2017's The Navigator, Segarra traced a line through her Latin and Caribbean roots while gauging the political climate for immigrants in America. ~ James Christopher Monger
