Regular readers know that this has been a very big year for Mountain Faith, a bluegrass band from the small North Carolina town of Sylva, who have been going nowhere but up since their summer run on NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent. Audiences of every age and type warmed to their authentic, rootsy bluegrass versions of a string of pop songs, which took them to the semifinal round of the televised competition.
Today they have announced that the band has signed with APA (Agency for the Performing Arts), one of the largest literary, comedy, and music entertainment firms in the United States. They maintain offices in New York, Beverly Hills, and Nashville, with Mountain Faith to be represented by Cass Scripps in Music City. This is the same office that handles booking for Dailey & Vincent, along with superstars like Charlie Daniels, Clint Black, and Dolly Parton.
APA is also a recognized leader in branding, marketing, and artist development.
Scripps say that his office is eager to get to work finding Mountain Faith as many new fans as they can.
“We are anxiously looking forward to sharing their unique story and talents with fans across the country, and putting them in front of as many people as possible.”
The band consists of Summer McMahan on fiddle and lead vocals, her brother, Brayden, on banjo, their dad, Sam, on bass, with Luke Dotson on guitar, Cory Piatt on mandolin, and David Meyers on fiddle and guitar.
Look for big things in Mountain Faith’s future.
