Pinecastle has announced a March 11 release date for For A Season, a solo project from Knoxville bass player and vocalist, Matt Wallace. The album features Matt and a number of other very talented singers, including Paul Brewster, Jesse Gregory, Wayne Taylor and Jerry Cole.
Even as a relatively young artist, Wallace has an impressive resume. He had recently been working with Newton & Thomas, and did prior stints with Pine Mountain Railroad, Audie Blaylock, David Parmley, and Paul Williams. Going forward, Matt plans to do shows this year with both Terry Baucom and Audie Blaylock.
A debut single from For A Season is available now through Airplay Direct. It’s Old Man Winter, with Matt on lead vocals, written by his former PMR bandmate, Jerry Cole.
Assisting throughout are Darrell Webb on guitar, Alex Hibbitts on mandolin, Josh Hymer on banjo, Tim Crouch on fiddle and Jeff Partin on reso-guitar. Lead vocals are roughly split between Wallace and his several guest singers.
Audio samples from all the tracks can be found on Matt’s web site, where pre-orders for the album are being accepted now.
