Drivin' On  (2010)

Drivin' On (2010)


Drivin’ On was conceived in the hills along the Ohio River and recorded in-studio, in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. This album presents a collection of songs that openly reflect the musical growth of RKG, as a trio, and references the roadmaps of the region’s music, merging them into a sound for the modern roots music era. This second Rubber Knife Gang release captures the band traveling the byways of American music, driving toward new frontiers while hugging each bend of the Ohio River, like the roads that follow.

A Rubber Knife Life (2008)

A Rubber Knife Life (2008)


A Rubber Knife Life was recorded professionally as a series of live recordings in Johnboy's living room. This debut album captured the raw energy and emotion of The Rubber Knife Gang's early original songs. The work has been described as "lightning in a bottle" (Brian Baker, CityBeat magazine). The band is proud to have penned every word, invented every melody, and squawked every harmony… not bad for a thirty-three hour weekend.
