    TOWN MOUNTAIN RELEASES BRAND NEW LIVE ALBUM:LIVE AT THE ISISRecorded live March 2014 at one of Asheville’s hottest new venues, The Isis.  Town Mountain brings their brand of original bluegrass/country with high-energy and spirit.  The project was mixed by Scott Vestal.  Scott is a good friend of the band and all around great person.  “We’ve worked with him in the past and he really knows how our band is supposed to sound”, says Jesse Langlais.  All in all there’s not a dull moment in the 10 song CD.  6 of the songs are written by members of the band and have been on prior recorded Town Mountain projects.  There’s a few covers as well.  Town Mountain puts their brand on a Hank 3, George Jones, Jed Zimmerman and the ever popular Orange Blossom Special.

     
    Back in July, right before Rockygrass, we had the pleasure to sit down and talk with our friends over at The Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colorado.  We chatted a bit about things that are coming up for us and some things of the past.  Oh yeah, we played some songs too.  As a matter of fact we played a couple new songs.  Click the link below to see what I’m talking about.

    We are very proud to say, that back in September of 2013 at the International Bluegrass Music Association annual convention, Town Mountain walked away with two Momentum Awards.  One for the Performance Band of the Year and Robert Greer for Vocalist of the Year.  It’s always nice to be recognized for your talent and hard work.  We would like to give a special thanks to all who have stood beside us, believed in us and given us a chance over the past few years.  With all this momentum we’re hoping to be in the studio this Fall for a brand new project with brand new original material.  Stay tuned!
     
    Here’s a featured video from our friends over at www.hype-mag.com.  This was recorded at Springfest 2014 at the Spirit of The Suwannee campground in Live Oak, Florida.  Perfect backdrop for a great weekend.  Thanks Philip!  

    Kind things folks are saying about Town Mountain:

    “This, my friends, is how bluegrass is supposed to sound.”

    -David Morris, Bluegrass Today

    “Town Mountain is not reinventing the wheel, but taking the wheel in their hands and driving the music down both familiar roads and out to new territory.”

    -Mike Bub

    “Kudos to Town Mountain for keeping the traditional spirit of the genre alive while at the same time pushing the boundaries.”

    -Jeffrey Sisk, The Daily News

     “Leave the Bottle‘s compositions are masterful, the interplay between the musicians is astounding, and Town Mountain supply it with an army of drive… An absolute triumph of a record.”

    -Stephen Spoerl, Pop Matters

    “There’s a new mountain in town – Town Mountain – and they get down with heart, grit, soul, and drive! They’ll get you moving!”

    -Jim Lauderdale

    “Town Mountain is on the make. Coming out of the same NC scene that produced the Steep Canyon Rangers and Chatham County Line, this Asheville quintet is one of those bands that should make tradition-minded fans comfortable that the burning historic core of the music is alive and well.”

    -Music City Roots

    “Town Mountain, part of Asheville’s rich music scene, have released a fine follow-up to last year’s Steady Operator. Phil Barker’s “Lawdog” sounds like an unearthed classic, and the group’s tight harmonies alone make this record a treat for any bluegrass fan. This is one up and coming band you’ll want to keep an eye on in 2013 and beyond.”

    -Juli Thanki, www.engine145.com 

    “Centered around strong, soulful vocals… Town Mountain couples creative, original material with impressive instrumental skill to define their dynamic style.  They are true to bluegrass in all the right ways and this new project keeps them firmly connected to the traditions of the genre, while also allowing them to reach out into the broad horizon of string band music.  Leave the Bottle comes highly recommended.”

    -Woody Platt of the Steep Canyon Rangers
