Blue Mountain Begin New CD

(PR) On the heels of their successful reunion tour that commenced in the summer and fall of 2007 and fifteen years after their first release, seminal Americana band BLUE MOUNTAIN will go into Elmwood Recording in Dallas, TX, with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Stuart Sikes (Cat Power, White Stripes, Loretta Lynn) to record a full-length CD of new material tentatively scheduled for release in June of 2008. The band will also release at that same time a self-produced CD of new recordings of their old material that was recorded by Andrew Ratcliff at Tweed Recording in Oxford, MS.

Blue Mountain was formed in 1993 in Oxford, MS, by former husband and wife Laurie Stirratt (bass, vocals) and Cary Hudson (guitar, vocals) with Matt Brennan on drums, later replaced by Frank Coutch. Coutch accompanied Stirratt and Hudson the recent tour and will join them in the studio next month.

Blue Mountain's music is a unique blend of twang, rock, gospel, country and bluegrass; original songs written in a traditional spirit, but with the hard edge of rock 'n' roll. They quickly developed a reputation for emotionally charged, energetic, raw live performances as they toured the country relentlessly. Blue Mountain was on the forefront of an entire movement now considered "alt-country" or "Americana" and included bands such as Uncle Tupelo and The Jayhawks. In fact, the band graced the second cover for the magazine No Depression, the definitive journal for roots music.
