A new gospel CD from the band BlueRidge is soon to be released on Pinecastle Records. The title of the new CD will be Gettin’ Ready. The disc contains 12 tunes, 9 of which are originals from Junior Sisk, Alan Bibey, Paul Williams, Timmy Massey, and David Johnson.
The official release date is in early March but the band is told they will have product by the middle of February, so look for it at their record table soon! Be sure to check their tour schedule for a concert near you.
Alan Bibey, the band leader, had this to say about the new CD:
I think the variety of the material is what I like best about the project. It has everything from a cappella, to hard driving bluegrass gospel, to more contemporary originals. One original tune a friend of mine wrote that features Sonya Isaacs, has a more contemporary feel and is one of the best written tunes I’ve had the pleasure of recording! Also, I think a high point of the CD is Alan Johnson’s bass singing. A good bass singer like that really adds a lot on a gospel project like this.
In addition to the new CD, BlueRidge has a new website under development that will include an online store and several other exciting new features. Right now they have a sign-up form you can use to register for updates about the CD and website. You can find it on the front page of their website, BlueRidgeBluegrass.com.
