Jason Rueger spent most of his youth in rural Kansas, walking dirt road paths, working and living off the land. So, when he decided to move to Brooklyn, his family was understandably shocked. It didn’t take long for Rueger to justify his move though. In only a few months time he had teamed with fellow Midwest transplants Ben Bullington (guitar) and Kurt Kuehn (drums) to form Country Mice.
This spring the band, which also includes upstate New Yorker Mike Feldman (bass), will release a new single “Festival” on March 28 and their debut album Twister on June 7th. They’re also touring in support of their new material. Dates are down below.
