Dailey & Vincent in BMP

Bluegrass Music ProfilesDailey & Vincent grace the cover of the latest issue of Bluegrass Music Profiles, which contains a 5-page article on their new band. They were interviewed the day they debuted on The Opry, and reflected on the enormity of this event and how their separate careers had brought them to this point.

Darrin Vincent shared his own reaction to he and Jamie Daley coming forward as a duo:

"If you think about it there’s not any duos out there at all in bluegrass. We’re taking a lot from The Louvin Brothers and Monroe Brothers ‚Äì old things from the forties and fifties. We’re taking that kind of sound to the new ages today. We’re bringing back the mandolin and guitar and just the two-part harmonies. Instead of straight tones we’re jumping parts where you do the fifths and thirds and all kinds of cool little things. We’re trying to bring that back. All of the duos ‚Äì The Osborne Brothers, Jim & Jesse and Flatt & Scruggs ‚Äì all those folks that have really plowed a lot of ground for bluegrass today they’re just fading away."

The same March/April issue issue of BMP has a DJ Profile with Fred Bartenstein, an interview with Mountain Heart’s Josh Shilling, Promoter Profile with Durango Meltdown’s David Smith, Shop Talk with Mark Johnson, Bluegrass Favorites with Larry Stephenson and Grasstowne’s Phil Leadbetter, an interview with The Dillards’ Mitch Jayne, a Songwriter Profile with Jake Landers and an interview with Ronnie Reno.
