Floodgate Operators Share Emotional Journey in ‘Pieces on the Floor’

(Los Angeles, CA) February 25, 2022 - After successfully putting out in front their single ‘New Mexico Winds’ in January, Crested Butte, Colorado-based band Floodgate Operators continue their breakout in 2022 with another indie bluegrass production, ‘Pieces on the Floor.’ Like much of the aforementioned earlier material, ‘Pieces on the Floor’ features great vocal harmonies and a unique western perspective, offering unmistakably rich soundscapes. Starting with easy-on-the-ear guitar sounds, this five-minute number conveys the end of a relationship and the distress that it brings.

Speaking about the creative approach, Mandolin player Zach Vaughter shares - “The writing process offered a cathartic opportunity to examine my feelings of remorse and regret, but also reflect, release, and move forward.” Co-written by Zach Vaughter and Kevin Doherty, ‘Pieces on the Floor’ is the second single off the band’s long-awaited 10-track debut album “Flood The World,” set to launch in April of this year. Never failing to showcase their distinctive, noteworthy composition and melody, Floodgate Operators’ new material will quickly find a home in anyone’s bluegrass playlist. 

Consisting of Kevin Doherty (twelve-string guitar), Ryan Maddux (banjo), Scott Stewart (six-string guitar), Zach Vaughter (mandolin), and Sebastian Akesson (bass), the 5-piece bluegrass band was formed in 2018 and is known for its vibrant, full-hearted original music. Floodgate Operators made their first splash in 2020 with their debut EP, ‘Drought Driven Days,’ building up a solid foundation as they gear towards “Flood The World.”

Pieces on the Floor’ is now available for streaming on all music platforms, including Spotify. For more details on Floodgate Operators, including their upcoming tours, visit their website and follow them on Instagram
