The Floyd Family Breakdown

The Floyd Family Breakdown delve into the country music heartland to dish up a jambalaya of originals and good old country tunes.

Playing in their own unique style (Floydgrass),¬†The Floyds keep their performances interesting with varied country music styles that reflect the heart of the band’s musical roots: old school country, hillbilly, bluegrass, blues and western swing. Their performances feature harmonies and multiple instruments: acoustic guitars, mandolin, dobro, lap steel, banjo, fiddle and double bass.

Founding band members Paula Hackney and Andrew Palmer have been working the floorboards since January 2014 to get the band to the level where it needs to be—writing songs, researching old-time country music, finding other band members, and refining their sound.

The creative juices are flowing, and an EP of original songs is in the pipeline for release February 2016.
