Scott Burgess to Deeper Shade Of Blue

Scott BurgessNorth Carolina’s Deeper Shade Of Blue has announced the addition of Scott Burgess on bass, filling the spot vacated by founding member Brian Hinson.

Scott had previously played bass with Kevin Richardson & Cutting Edge. That group is currently inactive as Kevin has returned to work with Larry Stephenson.

He shared this note with friends to announce the move…

“A few of you have been asking what I’ve been doing musically lately with KRACE in hiatus. Well, I’m happy to say that the boys from A Deeper Shade of Blue called and wanted to know if I would consider coming on board with them. I have been a fan of these guys for a long time and have always admired their sound and professional attitude. I gladly accepted the position and I’m proud to say I’m now a member of this fine band. Thank you for your patience guys, I’m catching up as fast as I can.

This band has a following of wonderful fans and I look forward to meeting them all at the various venues, so DSB fans be sure to say hi, I’d love to meet you ! To my KRACE brothers, keep tearing it up, I’m proud of you and I’m a far better musician because of you, thank you!! Thus begins another chapter in a musical journey that I wouldn’t trade for anything and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Scott joins Jim Fraley on banjo, Jason Fraley on mandolin, Troy Pope on guitar, and Frank Poindexter on reso-guitar in Deeper Shade Of Blue.

The band is based around Charlotte, NC. More information and a show schedule can be found online.
