Mountain Fever Records Signs The Spinney Brothers New CD To Be Released Spring 2012
Willis, VA - December 14, 2011— Mountain Fever Records has announced they have signed The Spinney Brothers, Canada's International Bluegrass band to their label and will release their debut CD, Memories spring 2012.
From the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, brothers Allan Spinney on guitar and vocals and Rick Spinney on banjo and vocals debuted their band in 1992, showcasing a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. Since that time, the band has released 8 CDs independently and are recipients of many Eastern Canadian Bluegrass Awards including 3-time Vocal Group of the Year. In 2010, The Spinney Brothers were inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame. Joined by Gary Dalrymple on mandolin and Darryl Hebb on bass, The Spinney Brothers have performed professionally all over Canada and in the United States from California to Maine making them Canada's International Bluegrass Band. “Merry Christmas Everybody” is a video shot last year by the Spinney Brothers and they have more reason to celebrate this year.
"After a friend suggested I check out The Spinney Brothers, I looked them up on online and began keeping an eye on their progress as a band", states Mountain Fever Records executive Mark Hodges. "I then made an appointment to meet them and listen to their after-hours showcase at IBMA's World of Bluegrass in Nashville. After hearing their music and talking to them, signing them to Mountain Fever Records was a no-brainer for us. They offer great traditional bluegrass with tight family harmony and the icing on the cake is their dedication to the music. These are some of the hardest working guys we've met yet."
The Spinney Brothers are currently in the studio working on Memories, their debut CD for Mountain Fever Records due for release in Spring 2012. The project, produced by Ron Stewart, will include music from notable songwriters such as Marshall Warwick, Carl Jackson, David Cooper, and Dave Lindsey as well as original music from Rick Spinney.
