A native of Milwaukee, WI, Jayke Orvis has been setting and raising the bar for punks-turned-pickers ever since his days in .357 String Band -of which he is a founding and former member. Known for his lightning quick mandolin picking, he effortlessly infuses punk, rock, blues, gypsy, honky-tonk, bluegrass and old-time to develop a style all his own helping to define the sound of a genre while simultaneously, and gratifyingly, making it all that much more difficult to pin a name onto.
After leaving Milwaukee in 2007 he relocated to Pittsburgh, PA where he now calls home, that is when he’s not touring nearly full-time as mandolin and banjo player with The Goddamn Gallows, or for his own project Jayke Orvis & The Broken Band. As singer, instrumentalist, composer, and bandleader, Orvis relies on an impressive live lineup assembled for The Broken Band.

Performing since age 4, Ben Abney grew up singing in churches and a country line-dancing hall in West Tennessee. By the late 90s he began playing in punk bands. In 2005, his attention shifted back towards the sounds of country and gospel that he grew up with. The son of a preacher, his stories of struggling with faith, death, poverty, oppression, and love weave through his writing.
