Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain, based in Asheville, NC, recently made their way to the little south-central Louisiana town of Breaux Bridge, where they recorded their fifth and most cohesive, most satisfying album to date, Southern Crescent. Produced and engineered by GRAMMY winner Dirk Powell, the album was recorded in Powell’s studio, The Cypress House. With an insatiable musical hunger, Robert Greer on vocals and guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo, Phil Barker on mandolin and vocals, Adam Chaffins on bass, and Jack Devereaux on fiddle, Town Mountain blends that perfect mix of energetic bluegrass sound and dance music drive.
For Upstate, the last few years have been a time of profound exploration and self-discovery. As the band knocked off milestone after milestone on the road, their sound, their lineup, and even their name all underwent dramatic metamorphoses. Challenging and thrilling all at once, those changes have finally culminated in the sextet’s dazzling new self-titled album, a collection that showcases both their remarkable growth and their adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll.
Recorded primarily over six days at the Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, NY, ‘Healing’ is the band’s first release with new member Allison Olender, their first with four contributing songwriters, and their first since shortening their name from Upstate Rubdown. It’s also their first project to be produced by Wood Brothers percussionist Jano Rix, who helped the group embrace their transformation and lean in to their unique lineup without sacrificing any of the gorgeous harmonies, eclectic arrangements, and unforgettable performances that have defined the band since their earliest days.
Upstate first emerged from New York’s Hudson Valley in 2015 with their critically acclaimed debut, ‘A Remedy.’ The Poughkeepsie Journal raved that the group “need[s] nothing more than their voices to channel rhythm and stoke your emotions,” while Chronogram hailed their “infectiously sunny organic stew,” and The Alt called them “toe-tapping, contagious, and fun.” The album earned the band festival performances from Mountain Jam to FreshGrass, as well as a slew of national headline dates and support slots with everyone from The Felice Brothers and Phox to Marco Benevento and Cory Henry.
Acoustic Mining Company
The music of Acoustic Mining Company is as familiar as an old friend, just as acoustic music should be.
The percussive mandolin style of Terry Martin and the melodic banjo work of Patrick Padgett interplay like overheard conversations, while classically trained members Chris Kolakowski, upright bass, and fiddler Joel Denman take the discussion into entirely unexpected directions. Two guitars and harmony voices complete a full, warm sound, provided by Jeff Ames and Steve Suh. Whether the band is offering up a traditional fiddle tune, covering a unique song or breaking ground with original ideas there is always an exciting relationship at work, joining disciplined musicianship with joyful acoustic mayhem.
There is a Colorado sound, a special something we all enjoy here that requires no name. From Boulder's Fox Theatre to the Crestone Music Festival, every musician can feel it, every listener can hear it. AMCo has developed and offered their own recognizable take on that sound for over 10 years, playing the venues, breweries, festivals and gatherings that connect us all to that Colorado experience. AMCo is simply in the right place, doing the right thing, making interesting, energetic and fun acoustic music.
