Armed with three lead singers, an encyclopedic knowledge of American music and gorgeous 2-, 3-, and 4-part close harmony vocals, Magnolia Mountain will appeal to fans of roots music, old and new. Drawing from the deep well of American music, Magnolia Mountain takes different genres, finds the common thread within, and translates them into their own original songs that both pay tribute to the past and carve out their own place in today’s musical landscape.
The band is led by songwriter Mark Utley on vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and banjo. Mark is joined by vocalists Melissa English and Renee Frye, guitarist Jeff Vanover, keyboardist Dusty Bryant, bassist Victor Strunk, and drummer Todd Drake. Magnolia Mountain plays regularly around the greater Cincinnati area, performing Mark’s original songs as well as an eclectic selection of covers that range from the Staple Singers to Son Volt, from Buddy Miller to the Flying Burrito Brothers, and from Hank Williams Sr., to the Drive-By Truckers. They are at home in quiet “listening rooms”, rowdy bars, and anywhere in between. (source – magnoliamountain.net)
