Urban Monroes' New Year's resolution: Tell everyone "Happy New Year!" So here we go... Happy New Year! Glad that's taken care of.
Just a few tidbits to start off 2011. The band finished up December in the Top 10 Global Bluegrass Albums at APD. We've managed to remain there for three months. Thank you to the DJ's playing the Urban Monroes. One of the songs recently added there, our version of You Don't Have to Move That Mountain, will be on Poetman Records' premier bluegrass sampler, which comes out at the end of January. The sampler will also include cuts from the Grascals with Dolly Parton and Kathy Matea with the amazing Jens Kruger. I'm looking forward to hearing this CD myself. You can get a preview of that brand new UM's cut along with our other new tunes in our player at www.urbanmonroes.com or www.myspace.com/urbanmonroes. The new songs feature Martin Stevens who is a recent addition to the Urban Monroes. Martin's playing is hot enough to melt tortoise shell picks so it's a good thing you can get a chance to listen to him now during the cool winter months.
