Mountain Heart’s new configuration is allowing the band to breathe and focus on their four core members: Josh Shilling (piano, guitar), Seth Taylor (guitar), Aaron Ramsey (mandolin, bass) and Jeff Partin (dobro, bass). They recorded all of the songs on the new album live with organic emotion and energy, shining a spotlight on each individual, while also highlighting the strong bond that connects them together.
With the support of Garry West, the album’s co-producer, Mountain Heart has created a genre-bending album true to their roots, yet dynamic as the band continues to develop and grow into their voice. With rich acoustic sounds and a contemporary twist to traditional bluegrass music, Soul Searching will have you lost in its lyrics and searching for your soul.
Fearlessly revolutionizing the way acoustic music can be presented, Mountain Heart is widely known throughout the industry for continuing to redefine the boundaries of the genre. They have gained legions of loyal fans both as a result of their superlative musicianship and just as notably, their jaw dropping live performances.
“Mountain Heart manages to straddle the line between complete reinvention and staying true to their roots – There’s a palpable electric current running through ‘Blue Sky,’ while stay maintaining the relaxed, festival-ready pulse they’ve become known for over the course of more than a decade.”
~Rolling Stone Country
“What makes ‘Blues Skies’ so different from the competition is their willingness to share the spotlight and free dabble in the kind of material that suits their individual voice.”
“Progressive bluegrass band Mountain Heart rove way beyond the confines of the bluegrass genre, adding a bit of soul ala The Steeldrivers and a bit of pure-bred country ala Chris Stapleton. In other words, we are talking about great southern music here, underpinned with virtuous musicianship full of heart and soul.”
