ABOUT EXTRADITION MUSIC: Extradition Music is not a style or a sound.  It is about a place, a place that has a long lineage in the annals of Outlaw Country, Alt-Country, Americana, and Roots Rock music.  Reno has been the home of the fictitious crimes as sung by Johnny Cash and Woody Guthrie; the rambling of Tom Waits, The Grateful Dead, and Merle Haggard; and the home of acts like Hellbound Glory, The Saddle Tramps, and Richmond Fontaine.  Reno is where their characters run to when they want to break the law, and run from when the deeds are done.  Extradition Music aims to bring this cast of bad men, led by the great Johnny Cash himself, back to Reno to face the music.
