It’s an acoustic mix—guitar, mandolin, violin, harmonica and djembe, driven by a lone-electric bass—that the Chicago Sun-Times praised as “an organic blend of rollicking pop.” The group prefers to describe their sound more simply: acoustic pop. However you label them, Down The Line creates music that’s pure, unique and unforgettable. In 2010 Down The Line released Open The Door, a stirring EP of new originals. They are not to be missed.
