Chris Jones & The Night Drivers Choose Freedom Down New RoadsChris Jones & The Night Drivers Choose Freedom Down New Roads
by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2019

Even in traditionally-based music, every band evolves. As the world of Bluegrass continues to widen its tent of what is and isn't accepted as part of the genre, it remains an artform that contains a traditional tenant next to one open to individual expression. With harmony between the two, Bluegrass has remained a perfect medium for songwriting. Chris Jones & The Night Drivers have taken advantage of this creative environment, becoming award-winning veterans at writing, performing and recording, with Jones being one of the foremost songwriters in Bluegrass - so much so, he has helped evolve the genre over the last several years by adding his deeply personal and original style to his music.

Eric Brace, Peter Cooper & Thomm Jutz To Release RIVERLANDEric Brace, Peter Cooper & Thomm Jutz To Release RIVERLAND
by BWW News Desk - Jan 17, 2019

Riverland is the new album from Eric Brace, Peter Cooper & Thomm Jutz on Nashville based Red Beet Records. It's a concept album, a daring thing in these days of shuffle modes and short attention. It's about Mississippi - both the big river and the troubled-but-beautiful state - though Brace is a Washington, D.C. guy, Cooper is from South Carolina, and Jutz grew up in Germany's Black Forest. On paper, it's a suspect idea. In song, it shines like a bright Natchez morning, and hurts like a lonesome Meridian motel room. (more...)
