Steep Canyon Rangers
Steep Canyon Rangers
GRAMMY® Award-winning Steep Canyon Rangers unveil their highly anticipated ninth studio album, RADIO, a project that further illustrates the band’s dynamic songwriting, instrumental virtuosity and high-energy performance. Members Woody Platt (guitar), Graham Sharp (banjo), Charles R. Humphrey III (bass), Mike Guggino (mandolin), Nicky Sanders (fiddle) and Mike Ashworth (box kit) are also known for collaborations with actor/comedian and respected banjo player Steve Martin and esteemed singer-songwriter Edie Brickell. The Steep Canyon Rangers’ RADIO was produced by fourteen-time GRAMMY® winner, Jerry Douglas (John Oates, Alison Krauss, Del McCoury Band) and recorded at Asheville, NC’s Echo Mountain Recording Studio. The album’s twelve all-original bluegrass/ Americana tracks were written by Sharp, Humphrey, Platt and Guggino in varying degrees, including a few co-writes with fellow musicians such as Phil Barker of the Carolina bluegrass band Town Mountain. RADIO follows Steep Canyon Rangers’ 2013 release, Tell the Ones I Love, which Bluegrass Today praised as “…a great mixture of today’s bluegrass styles, excellent harmonies, and a few surprises…an excellent album…”
The Brooklyn Bluegrass Collective
The Brooklyn Bluegrass Collective
The acoustic musicians of Brooklyn form a community of vibrant artists who bring a variety of musical insight into the traditional canon of bluegrass tunes. With backgrounds in everything from trad jazz to Klesmer and zydeco, educations as far-reaching as Berklee School of Music and front porch pickin’, and influences that range from Bach to Ornette, the musicians of the Collective bring enormous breadth and depth to NYC bluegrass. The Brooklyn Bluegrass Collective captures the best of talent and spirit that resides in the roots music community of Brooklyn, New York. Zack Bruce and Jason Borisoff formed the Collective in the fall of 2014 to record and showcase the expanse of musicianship and style that defines the diverse bluegrass community of Brooklyn. As two musicians working in the scene themselves, Zack and Jason saw a need for an organized, comprehensive, and musically-rigorous Cooperative to catalog the dynamic sound of Brooklyn bluegrass.
