Track Premiere: Shallow Rivers from Jackson Hollow

Mountain Fever Records has a new single coming tomorrow from Jackson Hollow, an experienced Canadian bluegrass band based in Vancouver. They are offering our readers a sneak preview this afternoon here at Bluegrass Today.

Jackson Hollow is based around the talents of Tianna Lefebvre and Mike Sanyshyn, both celebrated artists in British Columbia country and bluegrass circles. Together, this husband and wife team deliver a clean and crisp sound that blends acoustic country songs with bluegrass instrumentation.

Mike plays mandolin and fiddle, and sings duets with Tianna, who is the group’s primary lead singer. They are supported by Charlie Frie on bass and Eric Reed on banjo and guitar.

For this second single from their upcoming Mountain Fever debut project, they have chosen a lovely ballad called Shallow Rivers, written by Shari Baker, Christy Baker, and Austin Cunningham.

Tianna says that the words to this song have really touched her…

“I’ve been drinkin’ from shallow rivers…. but my heart needs deeper water…

 These beautiful lyrics deliver a powerful and heartfelt message defining what it’s like to yearn for the perfect soulmate.

With the realization, sometimes it takes a little longer than expected to discover ‘true passion,’ while learning to accept that you may have to look at little deeper to find your own ‘sweet forever.'”

Have a listen…

Look for Shallow Rivers from Jackson Hollow at streaming and download sites Tuesday, November 2. Radio programmers can find the track now at AirPlay Direct.
