In addition to plugging away on the bluegrass circuit, we understand that mandolinist, vocalist and band leader Jimmy Bowen is shopping a country project to record companies in Nashville.
Steve Brooks mentioned recently in his Music Biz and Broadcast Beat column in Country Music Report that…
Jimmy Bowen & Santa Fe are working with Music Row maven Gary Lamb to land a record deal. Word has it that Big Machine Records is giving Bowen’s new album a spin to see what develops. I’ve listened to the album‚Ä¶and it’s good.
Bowen’s group, Santa Fe, includes Rick Briggs on banjo,
Daniel Dingeldein Ron Lane on guitar and Blake Bowen on bass. All the members play a variety of instruments, and can perform in either a bluegrass or country format.
