North Carolina’s Mountain Faith has announced Luke Dotson as their new guitarist, who will also share in the lead and harmony vocals.
Luke is a recent graduate of Western Carolina University, and had been singing with the Calvary Reflections for the past 5 years. In Mountain Faith he joins Brayden McMahan on banjo, his sister Summer McMahan on fiddle and lead vocals, and their dad Sam on bass. Dustin Norris plays mandolin.
Dotson tells us that he found his way into the band through a college pal.
“I met Dustin Norris, who was already playing with Mountain Faith, in school at Western Carolina University and we quickly became friends through our interests in music. A couple of months after meeting Dustin, Mountain Faith asked me to fill in for John Morgan who ended up being able to make the show. However, I still played a couple of songs with them that night, and since then my relationship with the members of Mountain Faith has continued to grow.
I am extremely excited for the opportunity to play with such a talented group of people and look forward to what lies ahead.”
Mountain Faith is in Dallas today starting work on their next album, expected sometime this summer. They will also be at SPBGMA this weekend where they are nominated for eight awards.
