The sound of Frontier Ruckus is anything but a ruckus. Born out of youthful humble beginnings when Matthew Milia and David Winston Jones met in high school in metro Detroit, Frontier Ruckus became a sextet in East Lansing during their college years. After releasing two EPs, they found themselves attracting the attention of critics while earning nods on the Bonnaroo lineup and in the Daytrotter studio. Their latest full-length Enter the Kingdom is full of clever lyrics, Milia’s quiet yet intense voice mixed with banjos, and the feel-good feeling that their feel-good folk songs always seem to have in spades. For fans of Andrew Bird and Iron & Wine.
