HERE TO STAY, the new solo album by multi-Grammy award-winning artist Adam Steffey, is now released.  Recorded with a team of ultimate hardcore Bluegrass musicians, Ron Stewart on fiddle, Jason Davis on banjo, Barry Bales on bass and Aaron Ramsey on guitar, these well-known works are still true to the original. They are, however, refreshed with new energy that is led by Steffey’s unmistakable mandolin tone and attack.

Steffey’s impressive career includes a record-setting eleven International Bluegrass Music Association Mandolin Performer of the Year Awards – a nomination he received again this year. As a founding member and performer with the 3-time IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year Award-Winning band, The Boxcars, HERE TO STAY proves Steffey is one of the most respected and accomplished artists in music today.

Music critics are loving HERE TO STAY saying…..

“To produce a CD of such high quality from start to finish with songs that are polar opposites in some ways speaks to Steffey’s artistic ability and effort toward perfection. Rather than opposites struggling and pulling the project apart, the whole thing hangs as one unit and the songs serve to show facets of the same gem. If I gave stars, this would receive the maximum- Excellent work.” – Flashpoint

“There’s no other way to describe the effect of Adam Steffey’s new album titled Here To Stay. He is a master of bluegrass who is clearly here to stay, and this is an album that lovers of the genre will hold in high regard.” – Parcbench

Here to Stay is a collection of new versions of some of his favorite songs over the past three decades. His very recognizable rich baritone flows over these songs with the effortless touch of a true master.” – Black Rose Acoustic Society

The opening track, “Mountain Man,” along with “Town That Never Sleeps” made their debut on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 Bluegrass Chart today. To listen and purchase the entire album, visit iTunes, Amazon and more fine retail sites.

Mountain Fever Records Announces the Release of Voices from Volume Five

Mountain Fever Press Release:

Mountain Fever Records announces the release of Voices from Volume Five, available today.

_MG_2458Founded in early 2008 by vocalist and fiddle player Glen Harrell, Volume Five includes the talents of Harry Clark (Mandolin & Vocals), Chris Williamson (Bass & Vocals), Patton Wages (Banjo & Vocals,) and Colby Laney (Guitar & Vocals.) These five musicians together truly blend into a band with staying power. “When I put this group together, I knew the style of music I wanted us to play and the goals I wanted to achieve,” stated Harrell. “It was just a matter of finding the right guys who wanted to create their own identity in the industry. I didn’t just want us to be another band that moves onto the scene and is gone in a few years, but one that would have a unique sound that players and listeners would remember for many years to come – one that sounded like no other band in the business.”

album-cover-volume-five-voices400wVoices is the band’s fifth album and features 12 tracks of carefully selected songs, showcasing the many facets of musical tastes that come from within the decidedly bluegrass ensemble—traditional, classic, and on-the-edge—this CD covers it all. The album features the vocal and instrumental prowess of each V5 band member along with the added talents of Jeff Partin who plays Dobro and also contributed three original songs (“Satan’s Ridge,” “Faithfully,” and the first single, “Crazy Night”). V5 guitarist Colby Laney brought two original songs (“Going Across the Mountain” and “Sam’s Gap”) while the album is rounded out with cuts written by noted country artists Hal Ketchum, Jedd Hughes, and Dolly Parton, whose classic “Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man,” is sure to be a standout track with the addition of Rhonda Vincent sharing the vocal spotlight with V5 ring-leader, Glen Harrell. Produced by Aaron Ramsey and recorded at Mountain Fever Studios, Voices is already receiving rave reviews from radio programmers and media:

“There’s not a bad cut on the album but I’ve been featuring “Crazy Night,” written by Jeff Partin. I also like the rousing gold-mining saga “King of California” that kicks off the album and the remake of Dolly Parton’s “Daddy Was an Old-time Preacher Man” featuring Rhonda Vincent on guest vocals.” – Wayne Rice, KSON – FM

“The new Voices project is a must have bluegrass CD. Superb vocals and top notch instrumentation make this a pleasure to listen to. From songs of heartbreak to songs of faith – 12 tracks of bluegrass done just as it should be!” – Joe Stutzman, Heartland Bluegrass

“Voices is bluegrass at full strength…it fits my definition of a great bluegrass album: one that reminds me why I fell in love with the music all those years ago.” – Jerome Clark, Editor, Rambles.net.

“Voices is the perfect title from the V5 gang because their voices have never sounded better! A mix of original songs with a few covers, you will just want to put on some headphones, lean back, shut your eyes, and just hear the “Voices” of Volume Five.” – Gene Skinner, Great Stuff Bluegrass

The track listing for Voices is as follows:
1. “King of California”
2. “Going Across the Mountain”
3. “Dream Softly”
4. “Crazy Night”
5. “Strangest Dreams”
6. “Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man” with Rhonda Vincent
7. “Satan’s Ridge”
8. “Colder and Colder”
9. “Sam’s Gap”
10. “Amanda”
11. “Soldier For the Lonely”
12. “Faithfully”
