Nashville, TN -- Feller and Hill and the Bluegrass Buckaroos adjusted their band lineup recently. Three new artists have taken up their positions with Feller and Hill. The band has announced that Glen Inman (aka,Cookie) on bass, Steve Day on fiddle and Mark Poe on guitar have recently joined the Bluegrass Buckaroos lineup. Day will continue working with Ronnie Reno also. The new members will begin working on the next Feller and Hill project in their Buckaroo Studios. If you like traditional bluegrass and classic country music, you’ll love Feller and Hill and the Bluegrass Buckaroos.
Formed in the tradition of such legendary duos Flatt and Scruggs and the Osborne Brothers, Tom Feller and Chris Hill are also heavily influenced by classic country greats Buck Owens and Ray Price. Thus was born Feller and Hill and the Bluegrass Buckaroos. Feller's solid, expressive lead vocals blend seamlessly with Hill's razor-sharp tenor vocals, culminating in an exciting new duo, Feller and Hill.
Tom Feller and Chris Hill were born across the Ohio River from each other—Tom in southern Indiana and Chris in northern Kentucky. Both have performed with bands from bluegrass-rich areas of Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Virginia. Tom has been with Jerry Williamson & Redwing, The Larry Stephenson Band, Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, and with Nashville songwriter Kim Fox in the group 3 Fox Drive. Chris has performed with Gerald Evans and Paradise, The Wildwood Valley Boys, the James King Band, and The Karl Shiflett and Big Country Show.
“Bluegrass-bound” to get together someday—it happened when Tom was filling in on bass and running sound with his cousin, Tony Holt’s band, the Wildwood Valley Boys, during Chris Hill’s tenure with them. Tom immediately noticed Chris’s Don Rich-like tenor abilities, filing them in his best in the business category. Likewise, Chris admired Tom’s skills at bass and sound engineering.
Their latest self-titled album was released in February, 2013. The CD has received praise and recognition from other industry greats, including Rhonda Vincent, Dudley Connell, Larry Stephenson, Larry Cordle, and many others.
