Larry Stephenson Releases
What Really Matters
Compass Records debut album with IBMA Award-winner
“One of the finest singers in bluegrass” —Country Standard Time
 
Larry Stephenson delivers one of the finest albums of his career on his Compass Records debut What Really Matters. The album comes on the heels of the Larry Stephenson Band’s win for Recorded Event of the Year at the 2010 International Bluegrass Music Awards for his bluegrass star-studded previous effort, 20th Anniversary, Stephenson again teaming up with co-producer Ben Surratt. Armed with 12 outstanding tracks and surrounded by a road-tested band that includes Kenny Ingram (banjo), Kevin Richardson (guitar) and Danny Stewart (bass), Stephenson’s distinctive vocals are showcased to great effect. Standout tracks include the title track and a spirited reworking of “Philadelphia Lawyer” featuring Sam Bush on fiddle and harmony vocals.

Larry Stephenson has been a mainstay of the bluegrass circuit since he launched his solo career 20 years ago. He is considered by many to be one of the premiere torchbearers for the traditional bluegrass sound created by first generation legends Jimmy Martin, Mac Wiseman, Jim & Jesse and The Osborne Brothers. Stephenson has received many awards and accolades form the bluegrass community including multiple IBMA award and five Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year awards from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America.

Bearfoot Releases New Music Video For
"Midnight In Montana"

Bearfoot has just released a music video for "Midnight in Montana." This is the second video from American Story, their 2011 release on Compass Records. Featuring lead vocals from guitarist Todd Grebe, the video follows the band on the road in Montana, with candid shots and impromptu band performances on the side of Highway 90, in the backseat of the van and on hay bales, capturing the playful spirit of the band on the road. Watch the new video here.

"Tell Me A Story," the first video from American Story, was featured for 3
straight weeks as the #2 album on the CMT Pure 12-Pack Countdown with the album itself securing Bearfoot a spot on the Americana radio charts along side new releases from Wilco, Merle Haggard and Tom Waits. As a result of their media success, Bearfoot has since been booked to perform at some of the top music festivals this year including the Grey Fox Bluegrass Music Festival, Bristol Rhythm and Roots and La Roche in France. You can
