Maria Francis and Jeff Overbo define modern Americana with Silver Lake 66. Hailing from the Midwest, the power couple’s travels have seen them to Los Angeles and now Portland as they continue their musical adventures. More recently, the duo has been gaining incredible traction following the August 2016 release of their debut album, Let go or be dragged. 

With a winning amalgamation of classic country, folk and blues, their songs have been hailed by numerous publications and radio stations. It’s no wonder, either, given their knack for authentic, heartstring-tugging songwriting, impeccable harmonies and ardent guitar-playing. 

The Huffington Post’s Randy Radic describes Silver Lake 66’s music as “elegant simplicity” and “the real McCoy.” For Folk’s Sake’s Jonathan Frahm calls the duo “the real deal” and highlights their “sweet harmonies that mesh the entirety of their sound together.” 

Let go or be dragged has received airplay from over 55 radio stations throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. The album hit #19 on the Roots Music Report’s album chart, and the song “San Francisco Angel” reached #18 on its singles chart. 

Silver Lake 66 are one electrifying Americana duo to keep an eye on. Make sure to catch them on tour when they hit your city!

"These two are the real deal" - For Folks Sake  

For Folk's Sake gave the CD Let go or be dragged some serious love:

"They follow a vocally-driven roots rock sound evocative of many other popular groups of the modern folk era, from Shovels & Rope to Shakey Graves & Esme Patterson, and do so with a vested pride that elevates them to very nearly the level of those aforementioned megatons straight out of the gate."
