Mountain Fever Records is excited to share the new album from Junior Sisk, "Lost & Alone." Available to the public October 21, 2022, available here for radio now! We know you'll enjoy this new project by 2021 IMBA nominated male vocalist of the year, and 2022 SPBGMA winner Junior Sisk, and his outstanding band. .
In 2015, Sisk signed with Mountain Fever Records and has been happily turning out hit after hit for them ever since. His most recent album, LOAD THE WAGON currently tops the National Survey Chart with Bluegrass Unlimited as well as ranking in the top 5 on Bluegrass Today and the Roots Music Chart with various singles multiple times.
Junior Sisk is widely recognized as one of today's top bluegrass vocalists and is a constant reminder that traditional bluegrass is still alive and well. A longtime resident of the Virginia Blue Ridge, his bluegrass pedigree runs deep. Influenced by a father who wrote songs and played guitar and a mother who sang, Sisk first learned to play around age 14.
His early influences included The Stanley Brothers, Larry Sparks, and Dave Evans, but he often credits the Johnson Mountain Boys with inspiring him to pursue bluegrass professionally. Sisk first made his mark in bluegrass as a songwriter in the early 1990s, penning classic Lonesome River Band songs like "Game (I Can't Win)" and "Tears Are Blinding Me."
Bluegrass Today said that “few artists today embody the soul and feel of traditional bluegrass like Junior does,” which is evident on the other tracks on Lost & Alone. Songs include “I’ll Never Change My Mind, “Take A Little Time For Jesus,” “Chasin’ Down Old Memories,” “Take My Ring From Your Finger,” “A Battle She Just Couldn’t Win,” and “Nobody Cares.”
Junior is the winner of the 2022 SPBGMA Album of the Year Award for his previous Mountain Fever Records album, Load the Wagon, and the SPBGMA Song of the Year Award for “Just Load the Wagon.” It also received a 2021 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Award Nomination for Album of the Year, and “Just Load The Wagon” earned a 2021 IBMA Song of the Year Award Nomination. In addition, Junior received a 2021 IBMA Nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year, an award he took home in 2013.
