The Mighty Pines
The Mighty Pines
The Mighty Pines are a fierce roots band making music inspired by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. For over four years they’ve been fashioning their distinctive heartland sound. The music is fresh: bluegrass meets acoustic soul and rock & roll. With their genre bending original songs the band bridges the gap between groove and grass, between country and funk, between blues and folk. The music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed, with soaring harmonies keeping it sweet through every song.


The Pines formed in 2012 and since have released two albums, played hundreds of live shows and shared bills with such renowned acts as Greensky Bluegrass, Sam Bush, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Fruition, and more in bars and concert halls across the country. This is a band that can rage a late night festival show or captivate an intimate listening room crowd. Their latest release Blissful Vision establishes The Mighty Pines as a young, exciting force in grass-roots music, but there’s only way to truly experience this dynamic quartet: see them live.
Hawthorne Roots
Hawthorne Roots
It is just about 1 month into 2017 and 2016 already feels like ages ago. One lesson we have learned as we navigate the world of independent artist development is how quickly days turn to weeks turn to months and before you know it, 2018 will be here. So as we plunge into the hectic season of writing, developing and booking for a crazy busy 2017 summer tour (some exciting venues and locations already in the works!) we want to give 2016 a proper review and share it with you all - the people that have made our growth possible through all of your support! We had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some amazing bands that span many different genres (just like our music does!) including The Wailers, Rising Appalachia, Robert Randolf and the Family Band, Bassnectar, Russ Liquid, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, The Good Time Travelers, Fruition, Tauk, Zach Deputy, Maxwell Hughes, Young the Giant, Lee Brice, Chase Bryant, Halfway to Hazard, Logan Brill and Montana grown bands including Laney Lou and The Bird Dogs, MOTH, The Kitchen Dwellers and Cure for the Common (check out the awesome video from Silver Cloud Campout of a Hawthorne Roots, CFTC and Kitchen Dwellers mash up below or on our video page!). We played on some amazing stages and traveled hundreds of miles beyond our own beautiful Gallatin Valley we are so lucky to call home. Each month brought us new challenges and opportunities that tested our commitment, resilience, and sometimes our bank accounts! We grew from our mistakes and relished in our successes including Bozeman's 2016 Best Folk Act 2 years running! Today, we look towards 2017 a little stronger, 12-months more seasoned and with more inspiration to share our music with the world. We could not have made 2016 possible without all the love and encouragement from our fans and for that we are so grateful! Much love and see you on the road somewhere in 2017! P.S. We also celebrate one year of an amazing partnership with Resounding Media, owned and operated by Sean Gannon. Sean spent the last 12 months documenting The Hawthorne Roots tour and is the master behind so many amazing moments captured on camera and film. Thanks Sean!
Steepland String Band
Steepland String Band
'Steepland String Band is a high altitude bluegrass band distilled deep in the mighty San Juan Mountain Range of southwestern Colorado. 'Steepland' is a fast driving, hard picking acoustic trio that explores a vast multitude of musical genres, while managing to stay rooted in bluegrass tradition. Formerly known as 'The Hot Licks," the band was created around the love for and dedication to live music, and since then have been creating a unique style of their own, while managing to carve a niche in a genre of increasingly similar sounds. Drawing from an extensive library of covers, and a continually expanding catalogue of original material, each show successfully develops an experience for audiences that keeps them coming back for more. From the slap-style upright bass, to the piercing mandolin solos, driving guitar leads, and lonesome vocal harmonies, Steepland String Band is definitely right at home in Colorado’s community of progressive acoustic aficionados and dedicated show-goers.
