Gold Heart signs with Rural Rhythm

Wednesday, March 25, 2009 – Family band Gold Heart signed with Rural Rhythm Records, it was announced Wednesday.

"The buzz on Gold Heart was incredible at last years IBMA World of Bluegrass convention, said label President, Sam Passamano, Jr. "This emerging new group seemed to be a main topic of many discussions regarding what new music is hot. On the last day, sandwiched in between a day of wall-to-wall meetings, Trent Gold asked if we could meet with Gold Heart for a few minutes, and that's when I discovered what the buzz was all about. We were all impressed with Analise, Jocelyn and Shelby and their high level of professionalism, confidence and the articulation of the music and career goals."

Members include the three Gold sisters, Analise (mandolin, vocals); Jocelyn (guitar, vocals); Shelby (fiddle and vocals); along with their dad, Trent Gold (bass) plus Owen Piatt (banjo).

The group is currently in the studio recording with producer Justin Carbone. "Gold Heart is blown away with the opportunity to work with Rural Rhythm Records. Just to think that less than four years ago, we were still trying to figure out how to hold our instruments, and now we have the support of a fantastic label. We believe the time was right and we're ready to deliver the finest music we can make. We look forward to a successful relationship with Rural Rhythm Records."

This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
