Fireside Collective -- Award Winning Bluegrass from NC
Winners of the 2016 Merlefest Band Competition, finalists in the legendary Telluride
Bluegrass Band competition, and now featuring the Rockygrass Banjo Champion, Fireside Collective from Asheville, NC is quickly blazing a name for themselves as a must-see progressive acoustic ensemble.
Formed in 2014, Fireside is a group of acoustic music enthusiasts who blend elements of traditional bluegrass and American roots music with modern acoustic arrangements. With an energetic and engaging live show, the band presents finely crafted original music infused with impeccable solos and tight harmonies. Captivating listeners with songs centered around change, relationships, and being on the road, they transition smoothly between danceable bluegrass numbers and passionate folk ballads. With mandolin, Dobro, and acoustic guitar layered eloquently on top of rock solid stand up bass, Fireside Collective delights in tastefully exploring the boundaries of roots music.

Siblings Megan, Katey and Ryan Bundy were raised on music in Cincinnati Ohio. After moving to Nashville, TN, they recorded their first full length album, "Louisiana Avenue" in 2015. After a successful album release they have gotten the opportunity to tour and open for multiple artists, most notably: Grammy award winning singer-songwriter, LeAnn Rimes. The Bundys are set to release a brand new EP, December 2017.
Nevāda Nevada is excited to announce their debut EP, Wild and Glowing, out May 25, 2018 available wherever music is streamed or purchased. The album, mostly recorded in 2016, suffered from the lost year of 2017, as it was recorded between Lexington, Kentucky at Shangri La Studios where they laid down the basic tracks with Duane Lundy during their 2016 tour. The band completed the album in Brooklyn, New York at Translator Audio with Andrew Gerhan, the band's guitarist, where they recorded overdubs, vocals, and of course the very popular and very talented angry lady chorus. In addition to front-woman Kathryn Musilek, drummer David Olson and guitarist Andrew Gerhan, there are haunting and dancey strings from cellist Isaiah Gage and violinist Daniel Baer. The angry lady chorus rounds it out, featuring Alicia Berbenick who is now a full member of Nevāda Nevada, Lindsay Giles-McWilliams of Ark Life, Lauren Belfer and Lavinia Jones Wright.
Friends and fans are referring to the sound of Wild and Glowing as a roucous thunderstorm of a rocker, with tunes that exist in the space where a louder Fiona Apple and the stompiest of The Beatles' tunes intersect. Musilek holds it down with her left hand, powerful lower register of the piano, in these insistant and confronting songs. The album was written and recorded before the fall of the world as we knew it, forgotten and left gather dust all through 2017, and is finally off the shelf, ready for the world. Anyone else who felt that 2017 was a bit of a lost year will relate, and probably needs this album.
Nevāda Nevada will embark on a National tour, kicking off in Brooklyn for their album release show May 25 at The Nest, before the head out to Denver through some old Midwest haunts. Full tour schedule below.
