Finally, a string band for the rock-n-roll fan. Back-porch stompin, fiddle-shreddin, tub-bass pluckin your classic favorites, the Bodarks dig up the roots from which today's popular music grew and the American soul was nurtured. You can't help but move to it, kick back with a beer in each hand and wail along. It's good ol' American-made roots music picked fresh.

Tony Lundervold has always had a passion for two things in his life, rodeo and music. For 13 years, rodeo took up most of Tony's time and focus. Many years of determination paid off when he was crowned the 2009 Northwest Professional Rodeo Association's Saddle Bronc Riding Champion. Unfortunately, the following year he experienced a severe broken neck and was forced to retire from the sport. For the next couple of years Tony toyed with the idea of competing again but decided it was time to put all of his focus on his music and try to achieve his musical goals. Although Tony has put competition in his past, rodeo still plays a large role in the songs he writes and sings.
Coming from a musical family, Tony has always had a love for music. His dad played a large role in the styles of music Tony enjoys such as country,western, yodeling, oldies, gospel, and Hawaiian music. He grew up singing in the church choir with his entire family. In his late teens Tony's mom gave him his first guitar, one she had herself many years prior. From that
moment on he knew music would always be a large part of his life.
In 2007 Tony married Richelle and welcomed two daughters into his life, Kelli, and Brenna. Three years later in 2010, Tony and Richelle had Bailey Rae. The family now resides on a nice piece of land in Sublimity, OR. Over the past few years Tony has learned a great deal from close friend and successful western artist Joni Harms. More recently he has had the opportunity to write a few songs with Joni that you will find on this album, "From the Ranch to the Rodeo."
