Mike Herrera's Tumbledown is an alternative country band from Bremerton, Washington consisting of MxPx guitarist/vocalist Mike Herrera and Rocky Point All Stars.[1] The name "Tumbledown" comes from a line of Woody Guthrie's biography, which mentioned a "tumbledown kind of town." They are currently signed to End Sounds, which is based in Austin, Texas.[2] In Mexico, they are signed to Cafeina Riot Radio Records. [3]

Influences/Sound[edit]

Herrera has pointed out that he has been writing country songs since 1998, and that this project has been long awaited. He has cited Whiskeytown, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Bill Monroe among influences. The songs "Ballad of a Factory Man", "Sunny in Dallas", and "Lonesome" posted on Tumbledown's Myspace page, feature Herrera's unmistakable vocals and penchant for catchy melodies with a backing of classic country instrumentation far removed from MxPx's distinctive punk rock sound. The band has often covered MxPx songs at their shows, showcasing Herrera's ability to write songs that are versatile enough to excel in any genre.
