Nashville, TN -- For a limited time only, Detour is offering a free download of their new single, "Too Blue To Have The Blues" from their new album, Going Nowhere Fast. Just a few weeks ago, this hot new tune, made its debut at #6 on Bluegrass Today’s Top 20 Song Chart. Fans can download the new song at Mountain Fever Records' drop box here.
"Too Blue To Have The Blues" was written by Jeff Rose and Terry Herd. The song is highlighted by the beautiful lead vocals of Melissa Armstrong with Peter Knupfer (Violin), Scott Zystra (Guitar & Vocals), Jeff Rose (Mandolin & Vocals), Lloyd Douglas (Banjo), and Jeremy Darrow (Bass). Going Nowhere Fast is now available on iTunes, Amazon.com and dozens of other outlets.
Detour is now on tour including upcoming performance at the Bluegrass on the Plains Festival in Auburn, AL May 31-June 1; the Festival of the Bluegrass in Lexington, KY on June 25; the Bill Monroe Memorial Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival in Bean Blossom, IN and many other large and notable events.
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!"
