The Old Rochelle (formerly Bucky Fereke & The Pony Express) infuse an energetic Roots-Rock/Indie-Rock angle into traditional Country-Western style music with elements of Honky-Tonk, World Folk, and Rockabilly. Singer/Songwriter Bucky Fereke delivers a unique and honest approach to songwriting that is deeply rooted in melody, energy, and emotion. Both Bucky Fereke's debut album, 2013's Give Me All Of My Apostrophes Angels, and 2015's Wild River, drew praise from critics and fans alike. As The Old Rochelle gains momentum, the word is spreading to a broad multitude of music fans from classic country purists, to punk rockers, to combat-folk fighters, and beyond.
