Traveling near and far, The Urban Pioneers are a trio of road warriors that spend their lives playing music to please anyone anywhere. There isn’t one word or feeling to describe this band because they stretch in every which way bringing to the table a wide variety of old time, western swing, and folk tunes that are all toe tappin and dancin goodness. Just sit back, buckle up, and prepare to be driven on a journey of blistering fast highs and lonesome lows.
Liz grew up in the small town of Breckenridge, Tx where she began playing violin at 3 years old. She began fiddling around 2010 and quickly became a household name of roots music fans. She is one of the most entertaining musicians to watch in the world today.
Jared lived all over the south growing up and claims Chattanooga,TN as his hometown. He joined the Navy at 18 and began playing music shortly after his enlistment was up. He cut his teeth playing the upright bass but taught himself to play banjo and hasn't stopped since.
Martin comes from Fort Worth, TX where he started out as a drummer and quickly learned to play upright bass. He is a jackhammer of a player beating the bass down to hold the rhythm.
