Led by sultry vocals, dynamic instrumentation, and cerebral songwriting, Traveling Broke and Out of Gas has created a niche for themselves with their own brand of diverse, Folk inspired sounds.  
 
With four full length albums, and several national and regional tours under their belt, Traveling Broke and Out of Gas is quickly making a name for themselves across the United States. Aside from being head over heals in love with the music they write and perform, the band is very committed to causes and issues that have meaning to them; this is reflected in their songs' themes of social justice, sustainability, human rights, freedom, family, cooperation, and love.  
 
Originally formed as a traveling husband and wife duo playing what they wanted and where they wanted regardless of outside appeal, Traveling Broke and Out of Gas, now with four band members, has grown their grassroots folk/blues/rock/country style into their very own unique sound that has been appropriately labeled 'Bastard Americana'. This band was formed from the sheer love of and inspiration derived from music and songwriting; and becuase of that, the band's 75+ catolog of songs range across nearly every genre of music, often several within just one song. The words "all the songs sound the same" are something one will never hear describing Traveling Broke. This is a band for music lovers that want to be suprised, enthralled, and wowed in a music age where that simply doesnt happen so often anymore.
