Rounder Records has announced the signing of award-winning Bluegrass duo The Gibson Brothers to its label roster. The Gibson Brothers are currently readying their first Rounder album for an expected January 2015 release.
“As kids on the farm, we spent many hours listening to records, many of them on Rounder, a name synonymous with quality," says Eric Gibson. "We remember absorbing Tony Rice’s Cold On The Shoulder, the first J. D. Crowe & the New South album, and offerings from the Bluegrass Album Band, looking at that identifiable logo and wishing that one day we would be affiliated with Rounder, a beacon in the roots music world. That day has come. We are so excited to have signed with Rounder and cannot wait for people to hear our first Rounder project, a tribute to the great brother acts in Bluegrass and Country Music history.”
Upstate New York natives Eric (banjo, tenor vocals) and Leigh Gibson (guitar, lead vocals) achieved wide acclaim with last year's Compass Records release They Called It Music, which earned the duo four International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, cementing their status as one of today's top Bluegrass acts.
More details about the upcoming Rounder release are expected to be revealed in the coming months. Visitwww.gibsonbrothers.com for more information.
