Charles and Ray – Just heard your song “W.A.B.” in the latest issue of “Sing Out!” Fantastic – can’t remember hearing a song with those kind of lyrics and music since the sixties! Bought your EP and am looking forward to your next one. Keep up the great music!

Ranchers for Peace are Charles & Ray Duncan, a father/daughter duo from the Central Coast of CA with a fresh take on acoustic folk-rock they’ve termed “neo-hippie protest music.” Thoughtful songwriting, heartfelt harmonies, and jangly guitar/harmonica unite for a re-birth of that change-the-world attitude heard blowing in the wind during the Summer of Love.
“Hot and getting hotter.”
“…terrific songwriters … great performers,
and, best of all, a message worth listening to.”
– Glen Starkey, New Times (San Luis Obispo, CA)

Having campaigned steadily since their debut last fall, the Ranchers are now finalizing their first batch of recordings — a seven-song EP, “Tell All The World” — for release June 9 in concert at the Steynberg Gallery in San Luis Obispo. A busy summer continues with a set at the Live Oak Festival, June 16 (in Santa Barbara County). Meanwhile, their March release of free download “Walking Around Black” — their response to the Trayvon Martin killing — was selected by the editors of the venerable Sing Out! Magazine http://www.singout.org/magazine.html for their upcoming issue. A second EP is planned for fall, followed by a trip to Europe: an energetic conclusion to their Year One which will find the Ranchers out where they belong, riding the range of possibilities and doing what they can to make giving a damn cool again.
