Completing the quartet is Rider Soran, whose lead guitar, pedal steel, and lap steel chops add layers of depth and emotion to their music. Now, as the band gears up for their latest release, Hum of the Road, the excitement among their devoted fanbase is palpable. Recorded amidst the dust and heat of a Southern tour, this album is more than just a collection of songs—it’s a sonic odyssey that captures the essence of the open road and the soul of the American musical landscape.

ODC performs its imaginative repertory for more than 50,000 people annually. The company has long been recognized for its rigorous technique as well as its wide ranging collaborations with other artists. In 2024, Brenda was inducted into the California Hall of Fame with a class that included other luminaries such as Ava DuVernay, Los Lobos, and The Go-Gos. The Argyros is honored to welcome this groundbreaking company and its visionary leader back to Ketchum!
