BLACKWATER RAILROAD CO.

Alaska Folk Band

ABOUT US

 

Like good moonshine, Blackwater Railroad Company was formed in the small town of Seward, Alaska in 2012, and consistently delivers warm, cheery evenings. The band adds new original music with every passing show, mainly culled from the prolific songwriting capacities of its frontman, Tyson Davis. The music can be defined in many ways, but the overarching themes include folk, bluegrass, rhythm and blues and country songwriters from the late 60s and 70s. Regardless of the genre, BWRR specializes in upbeat, unique covers and catchy, danceable originals that never fail to get the crowd dancing and smiling.

Onsana Series

by Blackwater Railroad Company

Onsara is a Boro term to describe the bittersweet feeling of being in Love but also knowing that it is not going to last forever. Each installment of this two-song EP vacillates from raucous anthems to thoughtful ballads that represent both the dynamic variety of Blackwater's sound and the duality of loving and letting go.
