“It’s great. Rootsy New Pornographers or Fleetwood Mac high on Miller Lite instead of cocaine.”
- Joel Sires from TWINS

The Host Country brings you rock infused with Americana, blues, and folk. Unique, lyrically driven music that's inviting and sincere, tinged with the rawness of the emotions that live within love, longing, regret, joy, and everything in between. Dual vocalists & songwriters Ty Wistrand (guitar) & Diana Weishaar (keys) along with a solid crew of Tom Rue (bass), Ethan Weishaar (drums), and Michael Lovan (guitar) use their music to tell a story that's heartfelt, relatable, and magnetic. 

Their 3rd full length album 'STRIKE GENTLY' is out now.
