Pony League participated and rose to the top in Southwest: Destination Red Rocks in 2017.
"We are inspired by pop culture. We try to draw from real-life experiences."
Pony League is a group out of Atlanta, Georgia that is similar to Band of Horses with their animated, narrative lyrics and combination of country acoustic sounds with alt rock production techniques. The band consists of Jay "Chief" Howell, Gus Fernandez, Cyclone Charlie Mills, Mason Turner, and Justin Green, and cites Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and D. Justice among its top influences. The music itself is somewhere between alternative rock and country with songs that reflect their diverse range. For example, their song “Grace” from their album “A Fresh Start in the Same Old Town” has emotive, layered harmonies accompanied by slow, soulful music that is almost bluegrass; while “Somebody Like You” off the same album is upbeat and poppy with a fun, driving rhythm.
