Town Mountain’s Southern Crescent Debuts at #4
on Billboard Bluegrass Chart!

Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain, based in Asheville, NC, released their 5th studio album Southern Crescent on April 1, 2016 on LoHi Records. Produced and engineered by GRAMMY winner Dirk Powell, the album was recorded in Powell’s studio The Cypress House in Breaux Bridge, LA.

“The record features an expected dose of fast string picking, including the opening fiddle workout ‘St. Augustine,’ but as it unfolds it becomes a well-rounded effort full of front-porch song craft that touches on various shades of roots music…” writes Blue Ridge Outdoors. “The standout, though, is ‘Wildbird,’ [penned by Barker] a classic highway song about curing a restless mind with road miles; perfect for a bluegrass band that sounds pretty comfortable getting outside of its comfort zone.”

Southern Crescent is a near-perfect balance of tradition and young, raw energy… “ writes Bluegrass Today. “They’ll hear a hundred years of southern musical culture bubbling up and finding a common point where North Carolina, Georgia, and Louisiana meet as old friends. Town Mountain’s style and sonic footprint comes from a foundation of rhythm and groove that comes not from just loving the music (that’s too easy) but from living the music.”

Town Mountain is Robert Greer on vocals and guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo and vocals, Bobby Britt on fiddle, Phil Barker on mandolin and vocals, and Nick DiSebastian on bass (Adam Chaffins plays bass in the touring outfit.)
