Description

High Fidelity is a rising group whose love and devotion to traditional bluegrass is unsurpassed. The name alone says it all: HIGH FIDELITY. Herein lies the heart of what this group of young performers is all about.

The High Fidelity lineup band took shape in early 2014, leading up to a competition for new bands at the SPBGMA (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America) convention. Guitarist and lead vocalist Jeremy Stephens, fiddle player Corrina Rose Logston Stephens, and banjo player Kurt Stephenson assembled a list of decades-old songs that they could flawlessly recreate on stage, including some gems from the Stanley Brothers. Before long, the band which would soon expand to include Vickie Vaughn on bass and Daniel Amick on mandolin realized they could put their own stamp on the material without losing the integrity of the original recording. With that newfound perspective, High Fidelity handily won that year's contest.

To all but the most dyed-in-the-wool bluegrass and old-time music devotees, the music on High Fidelity's Rebel Records debut 'Hills And Home' will come as a revelation. The group avoids the well-known war horses associated with the likes of the Flatts & Scruggses, the Stanleys and the Monroes. The band also mines gems from lesser known but no less worthy acts such as the Lilly Brothers & Don Stover, Wade Mainer, Jim & Jesse, and the Country Gentlemen.

High Fidelity wooed fans and industry professionals alike when they mounted the stage of last year's International Bluegrass Music Association showcase. Joe Mullins, Chairman of the Board for IBMA, concluded "I've heard history repeats itself, and these artists are resurrection a winning formula that created classic bluegrass records years ago, and is a breath of fresh air in the 21st century all sonicly pleasing and in High Fidelity!"
