Taking cues from the likes of Bryan Adams, the Allman Brothers Band and the Black Crowes, Ponderosa takes good stories and combines them with great music to create songs that are more than just the sum of their parts.

The driving rhythm section, smooth slide guitar and whooshing organ set the speed while Kalen Nash's smooth tenor floats lyrics of love and everyday life among the backing harmonies, creating slow ballads and hard rocking tunes seasoned with Southern influence. Although the band has taken on a larger, more effect-laden sound with their second album, "Pool Party," their sound hasn't become burdensome or heavy.
