Willis, VA -- Mountain Fever Records will soon release the brand new, highly anticipated album Going Nowhere Fast by Michigan's popular bluegrass band, Detour. With an almost magical buzz surrounding this band for the past 2 years as a special to fans, Mountain Fever is releasing a full album digital download starting today. The album is available on iTunes, Amazon.com and dozens of other outlets.
The band is well-known for their tight, focused harmonies, precision instrumentals, and creative melodies that take listeners down a unique bluegrass road. The band’s first single, “Too Blue To Have the Blues,” written by Jeff Rose and Terry Herd, hit radio in February.
Detour is a "bluegrass powerhouse" that features heartfelt originals, tightly focused harmonies, and high-steppin' instrumentals from a superbly talented sextet of veterans of Michigan's bluegrass scene. "Quarterline Road," the kick-off tune from the group's latest CD, A Better Place, soared to the top of BluegrassToday.com's weekly airplay chart and scored in the top 50 of Roots Music Report's national folk/bluegrass charts.
The band’s lineup features the soaring lead vocals of Missy Armstrong, the championship fiddling of Peter Knupfer, the inventive rhythm lines of Jeremy Darrow on bass, the soulful guitar of Scott Zylstra, the hard driving mandolin and superb song writing of Jeff Rose, and the stellar banjo playing of Lloyd Douglas.
Detour has quickly become a standout—“a bluegrass joyride” that the Lansing State Journal acclaims as “perhaps the best bluegrass band Michigan has yet produced.” Bob Blackman, host of “The Folk Tradition” on WKAR-FM, says "for the total bluegrass package, take this Detour!"
