Bluegrass “Powerhouse” The Lonely Heartstring Band Inks Endorsement Deal with Premiere Digital Delivery and Distribution Company AirPlay Direct
August 3, 2016 – Nashville, TN - Acclaimed Boston-based bluegrass quintet The Lonely Heartstring Band is pleased to announce their signing to an AirPlay Direct Artist Endorsement Deal. The new creative partnership will serve to extend The Lonely Hearstring Band’s presence through their global radio distribution footprint for their new release, Deep Waters.

The Lonely Heartstring Band unites traditional bluegrass with contemporary songwriting, and has already earned accolades from respected members of the bluegrass community. Banjo legend Tony Trischka notes, "These Heartstring Boys have carved out a fresh niche in modern bluegrass. They adhere to the traditional format but take everything two steps forward. Their roots are clear and so is their path to the future. They're in a class by themselves."

Robert Weingartz, Chairman / Creator, AirPlay Direct says, “Deep Waters is a very strong debut album that is anchored in bluegrass but is also not afraid to explore different approaches to bluegrass and music as a whole. This is an exciting new band, I love it.”

Despite their varied influences, from classical to folk to traditional bluegrass — and because of them, too — the Lonely Heartstring Band never sounds like a clash of competing musical elements, but rather has a rich and fully-formed sound that respects and incorporates the full range of what each individual musician brings to the group.

Rounder Records Founder Ken Irwin says, "It's rare these days to hear a new bluegrass band that has a sound all their own, but the Lonely Heartstring Band's got that, and more, with intricate instrumentation, beautiful voices, and songs which are emotionally resonant and very relatable. We are extremely excited to be working with AirPlay Direct, which will be helping to bring this band to their audience, sharing the music of the Lonely Heartstring Band with radio stations around the globe."

The Lonely Hearstring Band’s Patrick M'Gonigle adds, "We are so appreciative of AirPlay Direct for putting their faith in us. Working together with them has been an amazing experience. Ever since we uploaded Deep Waters to AirPlay Direct, there has been an instant acceptance at radio and we can’t wait to continue working with them."
