Breaking Grass to Mountain Fever

Breaking GrassMountain Fever Records has announced the signing of Mississippi’s Breaking Grass to the Virginia-based label. A new single from the band will drop in April, with a full CD of original music (their third) to follow in the Summer.

Mark Hodges of Mountain Fever says that he is eager to showcase this talented group, which has a more edgy sound than most of the bands on his label.

“Since their first recording in 2011, I’ve been a fan of this band. They can play, they can sing and they have great stage presence. With ages ranging from 19 to 56, they display an amazing professionalism on the stage and in the studio.

I can’t wait for the world to hear this new record. It’s more SteelDrivers and StringDusters than it is Lester and Earl…. they have their own easily recognizable sound and we’re looking to a long future with these guys.”

The band consists of Cody Farrar on fiddle, Thelton Vanderford on banjo, Britt Sheffield on bass, Tyler White on fiddle, and Zach Wooten on mandolin. Farrar writes the bulk of the band’s original material, and serves as the primary vocalist.
