Morton Railroad

Morton Railroad @ Kanaalzicht

A melting pot like the United States itself, warm like the Louisiana bayou. Alternative country rock from the Lowlands. Netherland from the top shelf. That’s Morton Railroad.

Frontman Leon van Kouwen has his roots in the singer songwriter world and previously worked in Nijmegen with his band Caulfield. Guido Meulendijks comes from Helmond in Brabant and has earned his spurs as lead guitarist in hard rock band the Ventilators. Bassist Jeroen Lugtheid is born in South Holland in Delft and previously played in the garage band Spector. Limburger Ivo Nicolaes has played as a metal drummer and, together with Jeroen and Guido, formed the floating backbone of rock band the Frowns in Utrecht for many years.

Making music together, drinking beer and experimenting with the boundaries of Country and Americana. That is what the four men enjoy doing week-in-week-out. Old artists such as Neil Young, Johnny Cash and Gram Parsons, but also new heroes such as Daniel Romano, Sarah Shook and the Drive By Truckers will visit MortonRailroad.

Sometimes it blasts out of the speakers in danceable swamp rock, sometimes the gas is reduced to country ballads, but it always remains original and attractive. That’s where Morton Railroad excels. Wonderfully listenable songs that never get boring.
