The Alternate Root will host the Tuesday, September 13, 2011 world premiere of Nu-Blu’s new music video, “Other Woman’s Blues.” The video was filmed by Phil Bankester and Carlos Torres on location at the Historic Eureka Inn in downtown Jonesborough, Tennessee.
“Other Woman’s Blues” is the first single release off the band’s new album, THE BLU-DISC (Pinecastle Records). The song made an impressive debut at #13 this month on Bluegrass Music Profiles Magazine’s Top 30 Hot Singles chart. The song includes the incredible lead vocals by Nu-Blu bassist, Carolyn Routh who is joined by Christy Reid (Lou Reid and Carolina) providing her beautiful harmony vocals, and Rob Ickes (Dobro). Nu-Blu also includes the talents of: Daniel Routh (guitar); Levi Austin (banjo); and newest member Austin Koerner (mandolin).
“This album holds many surprises with superb musicianship, and fine sounding vocals making this CD very easy listening. Other artists featured on the album include Rob Ickes on Dobro, Greg Luck on fiddle and Christy Reid on harmony vocals. This album will surely become a must have in any serious contemporary Bluegrass collection. Congratulations to Nu-Blu,” said the Australian Bluegrass Blog in a recent album review.
