STEEP CANYON RANGERS
New album coming August 28
Though the tune is steeped in the bluegrass that has made the sextet an in-demand live draw, banjo player and singer Sharp says the album has a wider range. “Radio travels the dial from top to bottom,” he says “The album tunes into the rock channel for a little while, then the blues, then country, pop and, of course, bluegrass.”
Produced by Jerry Douglas, Radio is the band’s ninth studio album and is due Aug. 28 on Rounder Records.
