That Damn Sasquatch
That Damn Sasquatch is comprised of musicians with a variety of musical interests and instrumentation, allowing the band to cross genres of music including and not limited to bluegrass, country, blues, cajun/zydeco, and jazz. With a balanced, progressive, and traditional approach their sound is truly their own. .
Blue Grama is a hot bluegrass band out of Ft. Collins, Colorado. Taking their name from the long-lived, warm season, native Colorado grass, Blue Grama blends the sound of the Appalachian hills with the high plains of the Rockies. Just as the grass roots hold tight to the soil, Blue Grama is deeply rooted in bluegrass tradition, inspired by greats like Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, and Del McCoury Band. The band has developed an innovative and unique sound that breaks new ground while still incorporating many elements of traditional folk music. Blue Grama's repertoire includes a suite of original songs, well as bluegrass standards and "grassy" cover tunes. The members of Blue Grama share a passion for music, taking every opportunity to feed their bluegrass habit, and share their music with others. The group has an onstage chemistry which is contagiously fun and energetic, and they love connecting with their fans.
Oakhurst's latest offering Barrel (their 5th), was produced and engineered by Joe Pisapia (K. D. Lang, Ben Folds & Guster) and wasrecorded at his own Middle Tree Studios in Nashville, TN. WithPisapia and Oakhurst front man Adam Hill's collaborative songwriting and Pisapia's guitar performances, Barrel takes a noticeable turn from the bluegrass tendencies that characterized the band’s previous efforts to a more genre-bending Americana and Bluesey reverberation. The arrangements and the harmonies are tight, pushing the songs towards a much broader audience with mainstream appeal.
Oakhurst has cultivated a more organic and mature sound, while seeking connection and inspiration from every audience they perform in front of. Barrel, being released on the band’s own imprint OakHorse, was a 2 year labor of love minus the whiskey that notoriously surrounded their songwriting in the past. With members coming and going throughout the process, Barrel features the breakout song 'Out West' which is a collaboration with Oakhurst's newest member, Daniel Lawrence Walker and an outstanding guest fiddle performance by Jeremy Garrett of the Infamous String Dusters.
Barrel is full of surprises and will keep fans both new and old wondering what comes next.
"When you get right down to it, it's all about the music, and while the music Oakhurst makes on Barrel isn't the kind that defies description, it's definitely the kind that defies any one description. The result is a perfect snapshot of an upward-bound quintet that's as broad-ranging as any you're likely to hear all year." ~ Jon Weisberger, Nashville Blogger
