123 Astronaut is the new band. You might know Jeff Robbins from Orbit, the Boston band signed to A&M Records a while back. You might know Keith John Benjamin from the Providence band Mona. And Eric Hastings has been drummed with lots of bands over the years... most recently with Becky Chase.

Missouri Pacific was started in 2018 by Lubomir Rzepka in Boston, Massachussets. A lover of poetry, novels, film, and theatre, Lubomir has been an avid participant in the world of storytelling for practically all of his life, and has been writing ever since he learned how to hold a pen. Much like the folks that used to hop the trains from way-back-when, The Missouri Pacific is a band of misfits who abandoned any semblance of regular American life in favor of the complete and utter chaos that is committing to the music you play so intensely and love so dearly.
The songs of The Missouri Pacific are eclectic: constantly evolving, pushing through genre and style. Though there is undoubtedly a theme, something that holds between songs, it’s difficult to place exactly what that is. The music is melodic, sincere, deeply lyrical and very deliberately trying to tell a story.
