Barry Scott & Second Wind signs with Rebel Records

Wednesday, November 12, 2008 – Barry Scott & Second Wind signed with Rebel Records. Scott played with Doyle Lawson for about four years, ending with "Dig a Little Deeper" in 2005. Scott plays guitar and is lead vocalist for the new band. Second Wind consists of Matt Munsey on mandolin and vocals; Travis Houck on Dobro and bass vocals, Zane Petty on banjo and Jason Leek on bass.

The line-up has been together for a bit more than a year. They self-released a gospel disc, "In God's Time," about a month ago. Rebel bought the CD and will re-release it as the band's first disc. The music will remain the same, but the artwork packaging will be changed. "We're shooting for April or May (2009)," said Rebel's Mark Freeman. Rebel signed the band to a two-CD deal with the second disc of secular music out either in 2009 or 2010.

Freeman said the music was influenced by Doyle Lawson with a lot of harmonies.

Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
