Poor Mountain Records has announced the signing of Kevin Pace and The Early Edition to the label. The Spokane, Washington-based band is the first west coast act to work with Poor Mountain, run by Jonathan Buckner in West Virginia.
Pace and his Edition specialize in bluegrass Gospel, much of it from his own pen. They have two self-produced projects, and will head into the studio this winter to start work on their first album for Poor Mountain, expected some time next year.
In addition to Kevin on mandolin and lead vocals, Early Edition consists of Josh Robertson on guitar, Matthew Arndt on fiddle, Jim Adams on bass, and Christopher Arndt on banjo.
Buckner speaks highly of his newest signee.
“Every now and then you come across a band that just has their own unique sound. This is the case with Kevin and the guys. The first time I heard the band I was a fan. They definitely have a distinctive sound that is uniquely their own. I encourage everyone to go over and check this band out.
You are going to be hearing a lot more from these guys. Everyone at Poor Mountain Records is excited to have them representing the label in the Northwest.”
