Exota Springs

Alt.Country from Rock City Groningen

"Alternative Guitarsongs with a Country Bite": that's what Exota Springs is all about. Fronted by singer/guitarist Inge and backed up by Bert and Harold - formerly known as the tight rhytm section of punkband the Cheating Hearts- they teamed up around the new century to make some kick-ass music. Starting out as a punkrock outfit they gradually evolved to a mellowed form of american roots music with strong ties to country, bluegrass and alternative pop. But: still based in Holland's rockcity nr.1 Groningen!
