One Way Traffic

One Way Traffic is a St. Louis-based band with an eclectic sound influenced by bluegrass, Americana, folk, and blues. The band is driven by musicians Leah Osborne (vocals/baritone ukulele/washboard), Drew Lance (percussion/vocals), Erik Ferguson (bass), Sam Avery (guitar/vocals), and Sam Aubuchon (mandolin).

One Way Traffic has gained momentum quickly and forcefully. They were the sole winners of the Northwest String Summit band competition in July 2019, out of over 70 submissions and five finalists, as judged by the members of Yonder Mountain String Band.

They’ve built a loyal following in St. Louis, demonstrated by their sold-out debut album release show in August 2019, which saw 300 paid guests. They continue to make a name for themselves across the midwest and beyond, and are always working on expanding toward new markets and nurturing the ones they’ve touched.

All members are songwriters aiming to keep it fresh and share their experiences with listeners through a unique approach and an honest delivery. One Way Traffic is made up of seasoned musicians that are hungry, young, and genuinely enjoy working together — and it shows in live performances. What gives the band an undeniable edge is their outlook on making music: they strive to connect.
