Bluegrass in the Bottoms Presents The Mighty Pines & Kimberly Dunn
The Mighty Pines are a soul-inspired roots rock band influenced by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. With soaring vocals and thoughtful composition, the two principle songwriters shift the band’s sound from catchy rock ‘n’ roll to earthy instrumentals. The Riverfront Times heralds the band as “a talented young quartet engaged in the roots and rhythms of bluegrass but mixed with a more contemporary ear for harmony and production.”
The Mighty Pines formed in 2012 and is made up of Neil Salsich (vocals, guitar), Gerard Erker (mandolin, banjo, vocals), John Hussung (bass, vocals) and Mike Murano (drums). They have released four albums, played hundreds of live shows and shared bills with renowned acts such as Greensky Bluegrass, Railroad Earth and Fruition across the country.
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire — and with New Smoke Show, country artist Kimberly Dunn is ready to ignite. The 11-track album, produced by Grammy Award winner Chad Carlson (Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood), should mark Dunn’s explosion into mainstream music, after several years of burning up the charts in her native Texas. Her attitude is summed up in “Stand on It,” the album’s third track
Nationally touring country artist Kimberly Dunn's music is both intimate and explosive. The San Antonio native's show has been described as Dolly Parton fronting the Foo Fighters - you can always bet on it being uniquely memorable, just like Kimberly. Her latest album New Smoke Show, and now new single "Sugar Rush," was produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer Chad Carlson (Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood, Cole Swindell).
