Kingdom of Mustang

Kingdom of Mustang

Kingdom of Mustang is a sonic collaboration of seasoned musicians from Charlottesville, VA who first came together to perform songs from Mark Roebuck's critically acclaimed 2016 album release “The World and All Within.” After a series of concerts showcasing the album, members of the band began working together on a more collaborative project, Kingdom of Mustang.

Kingdom of Mustang is built on the songwriting of both Mark Roebuck and Tim Ryan, and also features Rusty Speidel and Michael Clarke. Clarke, on drums, was a Deal bandmate of Roebuck’s back in the day, and Speidel, here on guitar and soaring vocals, has made hay for many years with the widely popular acoustic groups SGG&L and the Michael Clem Trio. In addition to being known as the creative engine behind the iconic power pop group The Deal, Roebuck has also made records with Big Circle [with Speidel], Sub-Seven, and Dave Matthews. Ryan, when not making excellent records in his studio, has played bass with such diverse groups as The Gladstones and Curtis Prince and The Clairvoyants.

Together, they have created modern power pop rock with soaring vocals, driving, chiming guitars and intricate and beautiful harmonies. Melodic and memorable, with lyrics that puzzle and penetrate.  Have a listen.
