New Album from James Reams & The Barnstormers Coming Soon!

Rhyme & SeasonAs James pulled together the material for the new album, he knew that this project needed to focus on something other than songs about the hills and hollers or honky tonks. It needed to be personal and meaningful on a whole new level. He felt compelled to describe a journey that had no rhyme or reason, one that reflected the many seasons of life. “Rhyme & Season” touches on topics that affect so many in this great country – those who have chosen the nomadic life and others who were left with no choice.

Trout Steak Revival Gets Brighter Every Day

Trout Steak RevivalHistorically, mountain ranges have been formidable barriers for civilization. But for the first settlers who passed through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, those features gave way to a unique sense of independence and became insulators from the rest of civilization, with collaboration, rather than competition, as the prime virtue. Flash forward to 2015, and you can hear this dynamic at play on Brighter Every Day, the newest album from Denver indie-mountaingrass quintet Trout Steak Revival. Produced by Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters, Trout Steak Revival’s new album comes on the heels of their breakout win at the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival and showcases the band’s virtuosic original songwriting and masterful musicianship.

Review: Steve Gulley & New Pinnacle

Steve Gulley & New PinnacleI spent a good part of the day listening to a new project by a new group comprised of some very exceptional artists. I've always been a Steve Gulley fan of sorts as every song I've heard by him was a "keeper." Steve Gulley & New Pinnacle, the self-titled album featuring Steve, Bryan Turner, Gary robinson, Jr. and Matt Crumby was more than what I could even imagine. Tight, bright, electric, emotional and full of life, all in one small package. Bluegrass doesn't get much better than this.
