"Piano laden folk-rockers, Pony League, will soon announce their second album, A Picture Of Your Family.  “It’s an exploration of human perseverance in the face of such obstacles as extreme pressure, anxiety and depression,” singer Gus Fernandez explains, keeping in theme with 2016’s “Harder Than A Rick Ankiel,” which was inspired by the hard-luck story of a pitcher-turned-batter for The Atlanta Braves. Pony League has a knack for distilling real-life moments into shimmering compositions stacked with a lush blend of piano and guitars, a skill they’ve put on display across the country. Notable performances include a recent concert on a moving plane for Southwest Airlines, and more recently at Red Rocks Amphitheater opening for The Fray. The band draws a wealth of inspiration from their home state, though Billboard says their "warm, retro-acoustic sound feels more like California than Georgia.“ A fitting description of a band that’s been likened to Jackson Browne and Dawes. ”We’re an Americana band in that our songs are reflections of our surroundings and experiences,“ says lead guitarist, Charlie Mills. The 11 songs on the forthcoming album, A Picture Of Your Family, showcase a tightly knit group of friends and musicians who have steadily evolved since their 2014 debut, Fresh Start. Don’t miss them when they come to your town!"
