Discovery: Broke Down Rodeo

On to the North is about soul searching and finding your ‘True North’. For Larry Lacerte from Broke Down Rodeo, one of those dreams included moving from Colorado to Alaska for a summer to explore the wilderness and chase a passion for aviation, where he picked up a hitchhiker along the way.

On to the North tells the story of this journey and centers on the freedom and adventures found out on the road. It’s a folk song with an americana and country feel to it, with what sounds like a banjo being plucked steadily alongside the driving acoustic guitar beat. Lacerte’s gruff vocals add a journeyman feel to things, and the poppy nature of the tracks adds a perfect contrast to to them.
