Indie rock band The Apache Relay delivers easy vibes and smooth rhythms on tracks that may just become your new summer anthems. Catchy tunes such as “Katie Queen of Tennessee” and “American Nomad” feel as if they were written for driving with sunglasses on and windows down. Members Michael Ford, Jr., Mike Harris, Brett Moore, and Kellen Wenrich got their start in 2008 while attending Belmont University together in Nashville, Tennessee, and later released their first album in 2009. Ford, Jr.’s brother, Ben Ford, and Steve Smith later joined the band, rounding out their sound. After opening for well-known folk bands such as Mumford & Sons and performing such big-time gigs as Bonnaroo, The Apache Relay released a new self-titled album this past April.
