Description

"We are talking about great Southern music here, underpinned with virtuosic musicianship full of heart and soul." - PopMatters "While most bands narrow their scope to one particular sound, Mountain Heart pushes boundaries past traditional bluegrass into other popular musical forms." - Vintage Guitar Magazine Mountain Heart's new record is their first project in over five years and features new members Seth Taylor, Jeff Partin, and five time Grammy nominee Molly Cherryholmes. Mountain Heart is one of the most versatile musical acts ever assembled, appealing to a wide variety of musical tastes by combining elements of rock, jam band, country, blues, jazz, folk and bluegrass music into a high-energy sound. Mountain Heart returns with Blue Skies, their first studio album in five years. The same soulfulness that gave the band its name in the first place is still there, but now voiced through a blend of musicians that make room not just for their bluegrass legacy, but also singer/songwriter ballads, classic country, R&B, and modern folk pop. Mountain Heart completely reinvents themselves around long-time members Josh Shilling and Aaron Ramsey. Jeff Partin and Seth Taylor joined after the band's last album was released and violinist and vocalist Molly Cherryholmes (five-time GRAMMY-nominee) joined just weeks before Blue Skies studio sessions were to begin. Shilling, barely into his 30s, wrote most of the material on Blue Skies, with a Chris Stapleton and Ronnie Bowman co-write and a stellar rendition of Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" rounding out the set. Every member of the new Mountain Heart is a multi-instrumentalist and could also be considered a lead singer, which makes the possibilities both onstage and in the studio limitless.
