Banjo Rock from Oneside Coming

(PR) With Oneside's debut album First, to Last set to release September 30, the banjo will be reborn this Fall. First, to Last was recorded mainly between the hours of 10 P.M. and 7 A.M. The late nights and early mornings can be heard in the grooves, with lead singer Ned DeBary's earnest and soulful voice effectively bridging the gap between Americana and indie rock.

Beginning with First, To Last's foot-stomping opening track "The Letter," which combines elements of bluegrass, rock, jazz and even reggae, it is apparent that Oneside is willing to take traditional fundamentals of old time music and transform them into a unique, modern context. If My Morning Jacket decided to cover Bill Monroe, chances are that it would come out sounding an awful lot like Oneside. And for music fans, that's a good thing.

Oneside's genre-infusing sound has been showcased at Austin's South by Southwest Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and Fenway Park in Boston. This summer they will appear at the High Sierra Music Festival (July 3-6, 2008) and FloydFest (July 24-27, 2008). They'll be playing with The Damnwells, The David Grisman Quintet, The Avett Brothers, Donna the Buffalo, Bobby Bare, Jr., Bela Fleck, and Grace Potter.
