These new members of the Wilson Pickins Promotions team are far from new to bluegrass. A Deeper Shade of Blue has been driving bluegrass hard for more than seventeen years and has released six independent albums. The band recently signed with Mountain Fever Records and debuted their album "Steam" for the label, with a first single that is already charting and receiving escalated bluegrass radio airplay, including Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction.
Publicist and Agent, Melanie Wilson has known the band and followed them for some time and says, "I love that their new album reflects the band so well in the diversity of song choices and showcasing not only their notable tight harmonies, but their songwriting and arrangements also. Everyone should have this record and we are pleased to help put them on stages far and wide to share the music."
This popular North Carolina band is comprised of Jim Fraley (banjo/vocals), Jason Fraley (mandolin/vocals), Troy Pope (guitar/vocals), Frank Poindexter (dobro/vocals), and Scott Burgess (bass/vocals) and will no doubt be playing at a festival or venue near you VERY soon! In addition, we're sure you'll be hearing a lot more about them now that they are a part of the Wilson Pickins camp!
