Hurray for the Riff Raff began when Alynda lee Segarra started hopping trains across the USA at age 17. She eventually settled in New Orleans and was quickly embraced by the city's large community of street musicians. After years of learning from the music of the city she loves, Alynda began recording and performing under the name Hurray for the Riff Raff. Influenced by the sounds of Classic Country, 1960's Rock 'n' Roll, and master songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Neil Young, Hurray for the Riff Raff has deep roots in the landscape of America. After two self-released albums (2007's It Don't Mean I Don't Love You and 2010's Young Blood Blues), the band will be releasing a self-titled CD comprised of the best songs from those records on Loose Music (Felice Brothers, M Ward, Neko Case) in Europe on March 21, 2011.
