“I challenge you not to tap your feet or slap your knee. You will find it damn near impossible to even stay in your seat the moment these guys hit the first note. Listening to One Way Traffic, you will find yourself hearing something new that still calls you back into your memories of growing up in St. Louis. One Way Traffic is a newer local band that has exclaimed their presence with a blistering momentum.” – Whiskey Mornings Magazine
One Way Traffic is a St. Louis-based band with an eclectic sound influenced by bluegrass, Americana, folk and blues. The group is composed of local musicians Leah Osborne (vocals/baritone ukulele/washboard), Drew Lance (percussion/vocals), Erik Ferguson (bass), Sam Avery (guitar/vocals) and Sam Aubuchon (mandolin).
All members are songwriters aiming to keep it fresh and share their experiences with listeners through a unique approach and an honest delivery. One Way Traffic is made up of seasoned musicians that are hungry, young, and genuinely enjoy working together — and it shows in live performances. What gives the band an undeniable edge is their outlook on making music: they strive to connect.
Forming less than a year ago, One Way Traffic has already performed at over 50 shows, multiple festivals and two sold-out shows. They have opened for and shared the stage with the likes of Split Lip Rayfield, Dead Horses, Greensky Bluegrass, Allie Kral, Kitchen Dwellers, Ben Miller Band, Trampled By Turtles, Old Salt Union and many more. With three singles released and a full album in the making, One Way Traffic is driven, passionate and ready to share what they have worked so hard on all over the country.
