Signing their names to a napkin that read “September 1, 2010 or Bust” was the biggest turning point in their music careers. It meant that Jordan, Jonathan, Cassandra and Tyler would vow to quit their jobs and begin their journey as a full time music group known as The Railers.
“It was probably the scariest time in our lives, walking away from a steady paycheck and into the great unknown,” vocalist, mandolin and fiddle player Jordan Lawson said.
Since that promise, it’s been non-stop success. The Railers have gone on to open up for Sara Evans, following that up by playing more than 200 shows the next year and then landing in the President and CEO of Sony ATV Publishing‘s office where they would basically be signed on the spot. Not too long after the publishing deal, The Railers signed a record deal with Warner Music Nashville/Atlantic.
The Railers have released a 6-song EP titled The Railers: The Geraldine Sessions that can be picked up at any of their shows or here. All songs on the EP were recorded live in one take.
“Geraldine… That’s the name of our big blue van that rolls down the road night after night. Y’all keep asking us for music you can rock out to, and we are knee deep at work on our first studio record- but wanted to get something into your hands. This is just us, gathered around a mic, having a jam session in your living room. We can’t wait to release the full debut album, but for now here are some of your most requested live songs.”
