Willis, VA -- Mountain Fever Records is pleased to announce the The Spinney Brothers' latest project, No Borders is the #1 Bluegrass CD according to Bluegrass Unlimited's National Bluegrass Survey for the month of January 2014.
Brothers Allan and Rick Spinney are originally from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia and debuted their band in 1992, showcasing a tight duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. The cornerstone of their musical identity is their thorough understanding of traditional, southern-flavored bluegrass music.
The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, yet the Brother’s music is equally shaped by their personal lives and rural heritage. By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present.
Their debut CD on Mountain Fever Records, Memories, was also well received and reached the #3 spot on the National Bluegrass Music Survey in February 2013. The title track reached #1 that same month on the Top 30 Songs chart. Released in May 2013, No Borders includes recognizable hits for The Spinney Brothers including the first single, "Grandpa's Way Of Life," which is currently #2 on the Top 30 Songs chart, and fan favorite, "I Want My Dog Back," which debuted on the same chart just three months ago and sits at #17.
"We are just thrilled with the success of The Spinney Brothers," states Mountain Fever Records executive Mark Hodges. "Allan and Rick are some of the most wonderful people I know and it's been a pure joy to work with them over the years. Their dedication to their music and to the business is refreshing and I can't think of a more deserving group of people. It's a great way to kick off a new year!"
The Spinney Brothers will begin 2014 in the U.S. with shows at various venues in Georgia and Florida beginning January 2nd through 18th. For more information on The Spinney Brothers including a complete list of tour dates, visit www.SpinneyBrothers.com.
