Ash Breeze

 

Ash Breeze is an up and coming band from Moore County, North Carolina. 2013 was an exciting year for us. We were signed by Mark Hodges at Mountain Fever Records.  We were also  blessed to perform on PBS’s nationally syndicated Song of the Mountains in February at the Historic Lincoln Theatre in Marion Va., Bluegrass and Barbeque at Silver Dollar City in Branson MO and Dollywood in TN, South Carolina, Houstonfest in Galax VA, and Bluegrass Festivals in Vermont, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island Canada, as well as other great venues.  Our Faith is also important to us and an influence on who we are and our music.

Trained classically  until they switched to Bluegrass in 2010, they have created their own sound that defies labels. In their music you can hear many influences, including  folk, jazz bluegrass, classical, blues, and Christian musical influences.  What you will hear is a distinctive sound strong on instrumentation with tight, beautiful family harmonies.   Nellie is quickly making a name for herself with her strong, distinctive beautiful and soulfull singing and smooth melodic award winning  fiddle playing that has been greatly influenced by greats like Stuart Duncan and Andy Leftwich. Corey plays the guitar and sings and has a great style of his own that finds its way into the original music he writes. Corey is also the Producer of Generation Bluegrass, a video bluegrass project that is drawing a lot of attention. Luke plays banjo  and the Cajon, and plays with a steady, and polished style. Eli plays mandolin with speed and finesse that is beyond his years  and he also  sings harmony  vocals. Finally, Allen (Dad) tries to keep it all together on bass. Don’t judge Ash Breeze by their age, but by their creative and distinctive sound that is fresh, creative, and mature.

Delta Reign

Delta Reign, from the Mobile River delta region of the Gulf Coast, is bringing a fresh new sound by incorporating swing rhythms, blues and a dash of jazz… Delta Reign proudly joined the Mountain Fever Records family in June 2012 and has recently transferred to Travianna Records (a part of Mountain Fever Records) to make their presence known in the world of Americana.

 

As 5 rivers flow together into Mobile Bay to form the delta, so Delta Reign formed in the fall of 2004 bringing together the musical influences of each member…bluegrass, western swing, blues & jazz… it’s being called, “swinging bluegrass”. (or ‘delta bluegrass’)  and has evolved into a distinct musical personality that appeals to listeners across many genres.Delta Reign

Founding members, husband and wife duo, Pat and Benita Murphy, from Mobile, have traveled around the country, performing together (and separately) over the years in various bands from Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. After Hurricane Ivan came through the gulf coast in the fall of 2004, bringing change to their lives, they decided to
form their own band Delta Reign.

Benita sings most of the lead vocal, is the principle song writer and arranger, as well as being a strong and capable rhythm guitar player. She also switches to swing rhythm during the show contributing to that “swingy, delta grass” flavor. Continue reading Delta Reign
