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
