July 27, 2010 (Willis, VA): Mountain Fever Records is proud to announce they have signed West Virginia-based bluegrass recording artists, No One You Know and will release the band's CD, Calm Before The Storm on August 31st.
No One You Know is a talented and fresh bluegrass band comprised of five seasoned musicians - Rachel Burge; mandolin and vocals, Don Anderson; bass and vocals, Ramie Bennett; banjo and vocals, Bruce Jones; dobro, and Lance Gainer; guitar and vocals. Each member writes all of the band's original music and collectively wowed audiences at this year's National SPBMGA (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America) Convention when they placed second in the International Band Competition.
Calm Before The Storm offers 13 tracks of some of the best bluegrass available today including 11 brand new songs written by the band and new versions of bluegrass classics such as "Ashes of Love" and the Osborne Brothers' "One Tear".
"Looking for A Sign", the first single from the new CD, will be released Tuesday, July 27th via www.AirplayDirect.com. Band member Lance Gainer had this to say about the song:
"'Looking For A Sign' handles the omnipresent topic of relationships but
with a unique twist. Rachel not only penned this gem, but delivers a
superb vocal performance that only accentuates the conflict experienced by the main character. I feel the band achieved a higher level of cohesion where we move as one unit versus five individuals."
