Scott Cochran & Flannel on Java Blend August 3, 2012

Producing a brand of Americana-country they like to call “Genuine Cornfed Cosmic Iowa Roots Music,” Scott Cochran and Flannel join Java Blend for this week’s broadcast. Calling Eastern Iowa home, the group coins an alternative country sound playing mostly original songs with a few covers thrown in the mix.

Influenced by the stylings of Merle Haggard, Buddy Holly and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the members are proud to be “cornfed.” The group includes Scott Cochran, lead vocals and guitar; Iowa Rock’n Roll Hall of Famer Steve Ellis, vocals and guitar; Ryan Bernemann, vocals and bass and Rich Paterson, percussion.
