About Nights:
Although Nu-Blu had been around since 2003 they remained a relatively local phenomenon until they self-released the album “Nights” in May, 2010. With “Nights” Nu-Blu has really hit their stride with the album reaching as high as #7 on the Roots Music Report Bluegrass chart as well as charting on the Americana Music Associations Top 40 chart. The success of “Nights” was quite a feat for a self-released album, promoted only by band members Daniel and Carolyn Routh, speaks to the quality of the music.
Backed by the hard-hitting duo of Kendall Gales on mandolin and Levi Austin on banjo and vocals, Nu-Blu creates a distinctive brand of bluegrass that draws from the member’s collective experience in several different genres. The bluegrass sound is definitely a priority here throughout all the diverse material they perform ranging from older bluegrass standards to selections ported from other genres such as Nancy Griffith’s “Spin on a Red Brick Floor.”
Fall of 2010 saw Nu-Blu signing with bluegrass label Pinecastle Records where they look to build on the solid foundation that they built with Nights.

About Nu-Blu:
Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Justin Harrison on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered, American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.
