9-23-2016 – Mountain Home Music Company

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
