An album celebrating our 20 years together as Acoustic Endeavors. Here's the 1st taste...Thanks for joining our Endeavor!!!
Roanoke, VA-based Acoustic Endeavors is celebrating 20 years recording and performing original music with a new album - and a unique way of releasing the tracks.
The project is titled 20 years... 20 tunes, but instead of dropping a CD with 20 tracks, they will be releasing them digitally, five at a time, every few months throughout the year. The first quintet hits on July 20, with additional five-spots due this Fall and Winter.
The band covers a wide range of genres, embracing contemporary bluegrass, and a variety of folk and Americana sounds. Their plan is to group tracks around a stylistic theme for each sub-release, with this first conveying a grassy take on songs of love and loss.
Mandolinist, lead vocalist and primary songwriter Warren Amberson has never been one to take the straight path, and says that this style of staggered release perfectly suits his vision for this 20th anniversary record.
"For me, it's really all about the songs, and doing it like this gets the songs out to the people with the minimal amount of hassle.
The download style is changing everything about how recorded music is distributed, and as we were looking at releasing our 20 year album, it started to make more and more sense to do it this way."
Acoustic Endeavors also features Kelly Green on guitar and vocals, Greg Honeycutt on bass, Dewey Peters on guitar, John Lawless on banjo, and Billy Hurt on fiddle.
All of these songs were written by Amberson. These five new tracks are available to radio programmers via Airplay Direct.
