The newly-resuscitated Pinecastle Records has announced their initial artist signing since reopening under new ownership in August.
Nu-Blu, who was the last group signed to the label before it was shuttered in February, has become the first act signed since its reformation. The group is based around husband-and-wife team of Daniel and Carolyn Routh. He’s on guitar, and she’s on bass with Levi Auston on banjo and Kendall Gates on mandolin.
Their previous Pinecastle agreement had been for the leasing of, Nights, the project they released this past April. The new contract calls for three albums with Pinecastle, and Nu-Blu is expected to start work on the first sometime after IBMA.
You can find out more about Nu-Blu in the interview with Carolyn we ran in April of this year.
Ethan Burkhardt at Pinecastle tells us that they are still immersed in the transition, moving into their new office and getting accounting, phone and email systems up and running. A new web site is still in development, and will be located at www.pinceastlemusic.com when launched.
In the meantime, you can keep up with them on Facebook.
