COUNTRYBASQUE grows a musical style not easy to label, except a few nods to the classics, that every individual must discover and identify. It is a sort of a wide-ranging updated country-rock. In some of their songs, the band has also received contributions from various Basque voices and instrumentalists that enrich and give even more variety to the final product.

The Band




Members

COUNTRYBASQUE is not a typical band. It is a sui generis musical project born from the need to recoup a loss from a few years ago and that aims to create a timeless humble work but proud at the same time. A craft and decent work, without concessions to fads. It has as badge a taste for the good vocal harmonies, surrounded by many diverse instruments and sounds, mainly coming from the Californian country rock of the 70s, although, curiously, this band is made up of musicians from the Basque Country, in southern Europe.

WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT COUNTRYBASQUE?

COUNTRYBASQUE is driven by a rare goal in the musical productions of “signature style”: all the songs are very different from each other but in turn have a common identifier label. The public will judge whether we succeeded. We thanks wholeheartedly, our to-face and virtual supporters, for being there and listening to our music, and among them, our families, to whom we rob them part of their time to make this possible small dream.
