Bluegrass band Jett’s Creek shines with the release this week of their second single, “Marry Me,” from the upcoming October 15th release of The Wait Is Over. The traditional bluegrass tunes, tight family harmony and solid original material by this 6-piece bluegrass band, have garnered attention since their first national release in 2008, Supposed to Be. The first single from the album, “Back Home Again,” was released in October of last year.
Jett’s Creek founding member, Angie Young, believes strongly in the solidity of this new project. “To me it’s all about the song,” she says. “The thing I am most proud of on The Wait Is Over is the song selection. There is literally something for everybody whether you are a fan of traditional or more contemporary bluegrass music.”
The band brought in Clay Hess to produce the project and he turned out to be the perfect fit and missing link as he brought his touch to blending what each song needed to their sound. “When we set out to find material we looked for songs that really spoke to us,” Angie adds. “Some challenged us more than others and “Marry Me” was one of those.”
Originally performed by the rock band Train, the song had a completely different timing and different feel than what the band was used to but the lyrics are real and honest and “that is just what grabbed us. And let’s face it; bluegrass could really use a wedding song!” she laughs.
The band released their second album, Guilty, in 2010. The California Bluegrass Association said Jett's Creek has "stirring vocal harmonies and carefully blended instrumentation" and WorldWideBluegrass.com calls their sound "authentic and doing justice to what bluegrass is all about.
The Wait Is Over will be released digitally this month and the CD release will hit the streets Oct. 15. For more information about Jett’s Creek, please visit www.jetts-creek.com or contact Mountain Fever Records by visiting www.mountainfever.com
