Mountain Fever Records is proud to announce its newest addition to the label, Deeper Shade of Blue and their upcoming release "Steam." It's available to consumers June 29th 2018.
The title track, which is also the first single, "Steam" is written by Troy Pope and Mark Brinkman, and featuring Pope on lead vocals with baritone and tenor provided by Jason Fraley and Scott Burgess respectively. "Steam" is about a man who talks a good game until it's time to show action.
The lyrics are:
"Had enough steam to blow the whistle
But not enough to pull the train
The beauty in her eyes could drive a man insane
Well his knees locked up
His tongue got tied
And the words just left his brain
Had enough steam to blow the whistle
But not enough to pull the train."
Deeper Shade of Blue has been together for 18 years, lauded as a top notch vocal group and one that regional festivals consistently add to their lineup. Before they got together as a solid band, Troy, Jim and Jason saw one another around playing gigs; all three living in the same county just south of Charlotte, NC. One day Jim called Troy to see if he wanted to get together to sing, play his guitar and jam with he and Jason. They decided then that if they liked their combined style they would start playing and get started booking shows together. They’ve been rolling on ever since. Adding Frank Poindexter in 2008 and Scott Burgess in 2015; Deeper Shade of Blue has strong roots in traditional bluegrass, bringing it full steam into the modern bluegrass forefront of today.
