a Rock and Roll band from Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky.
Ohio Valley Salvage was formed in the fall of 2017 by musicians and friends who had peformed with, and around each other in different bands for a decade. Steeped in a rich tradition of alt-country and Neo-folk, each felt the tug of something a little bit more aggressive, more in keeping with the times we're living. Returning to their Rock and Roll roots the band is a force that cannot be denied. Driven by three strong songwriters, OVS careens from troubadour to jackhammer,
always with a deep appreciation of whichever genre is driving the moment.
Ohio Valley Salvage is an eclectic, electric, slide guitar, 3-part harmony rollercoaster featuring:
Ben Franks: Bass, songwriter, vocals
Mark Cretcher: Guitar, lapsteel, songwriter, vocals
