Joshua Powell and The Great Train Robbery

Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery (Anderson, Ind.)  
Indie Folk/Americana/Rock

Moving gracefully between lovely, subdued acoustic Folk to engaging up-tempo Folk Rock, Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery is a young trio formed in Central Indiana. The band has released a pair of EPs and two albums, most recently last year’s fantastic full-length, Man is Born for Trouble. The group is remarkably accomplished in both the songwriting and performance departments considering the members’ youthfulness — JP and Co. were recently booted from a gig at a beer garden because a member wasn’t quite 21 yet (don’t worry MOTR — they’re all legal now).
