Mountain Heart is thrilled to announce their new partnership and their recent release Blue Skies! This self-produced project is what the band calls, “the most emotional performance of the best batch of songs of our careers.”
Rolling Stone Country: “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 Skies,” while still maintaining the relaxed, festival-ready pulse they’ve become known for over the course of more than a decade”
The Daily Country: “Mountain Heart is set to return with Blue Skies, their first studio album in five years, on May 6th. The album finds the group reinvented with front man Josh Shilling being the only member previously featured on a Mountain Heart release. The rest of the line-up now includes Jeff Partin, Aaron Ramsey, and Seth Taylor and while the quintet stays true its bluegrass roots, they add R&B, country, and jazz alongside some heavenly harmonies and brilliant musicianship creating a high-energy, soulful sound.
The ten-song collection, which was produced by the band and cut live to tape, begins with the lazy day jam “Blue Skies,” a clear as day toe tapper reminding one to “set your spirit free every once in a while.”
Mountain Heart is the band that has been fearlessly revolutionizing the way acoustic music can be presented and played. The band’s name has been synonymous with cutting-edge excellence in acoustic music circles since the group’s creation. Widely known throughout the music industry for continually redefining the boundaries of acoustic music, the band has gained legions of loyal fans both as a result of their superlative musicianship and just as notably, their incendiary live performances.
