Nashville Based Rootsy Folk Ensemble Plan To Release New Music in 2011
Nashville, TN— Rootsy Folk Ensemble The Greencards have signed with Nashville based New Frontier Touring for exclusive booking representation, with industry veteran Logan Bosemer as the group’s responsible agent. “I have long been a fan of The Greencards, and this move makes complete sense,” said Bosemer. “They are a perfect fit with our roster and I jumped at the chance to work with such a great group of people.”
With two Australian founding members, The Greencards are probably the least likely Austin-formed/Nashville-based band you've ever heard. Their love and respect for Americana, Bluegrass, Jazz and Country brought them together in 2003 and they have since toured every inch of North America including stints with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson.
The band earned the Americana Music Award in 2006 for "Emerging Artist of the Year" and landed Grammy nominations in 2008 and 2010 for "Best Country Instrumental Performance". Their urge to challenge themselves and test the limits of any established genre guided The Greencards--singer/bassist Carol Young and multi-instrumentalist Kym Warner-- from Australia. Their meticulously crafted arrangements serve as springboards for exhilarating improvisations.
Recent appearances on Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Cayamo Cruise, Austin City Limits Festival, Lollapalooza and Merlefest have rounded out a very busy time for the band, and they head into the studio in early 2011 to begin their next great album adventure. Tour dates will follow for the U.S. and worldwide.
"Mandolinist Kym Warner exhibited some of Chris Thile's breathless flair, and electric bassist-singer Carol Young adds some nice low-end heft on top of a set of pipes that make grown men weak at the knees.” - JamBase
"Takes on bluegrass, folk and country and something more stylish; deconstructed alt-rock and pop played on acoustic instruments.” - Nashville Scene
"...draws you in with tales of ancient lives, hope for the future and promises of treasures.” - No Depression
