One of the bands who impressed me most back in January on Jam Cruise 9 was none other than Michigan’s Greensky Bluegrass. This motley five-piece has been honing their original mix of rock and bluegrass with soul by playing over 160 shows in each of the past six years.
On October 4, Greensky Bluegrass will release Handguns, their self-produced fourth studio album, which was recorded in a studio filled with vintage equipment including the actual analog console Lynyrd Skynyrd used to track Free Bird in 1973. Luckily we don’t have to wait the whole two months for a taste of Handguns as the band has shared a free five-track EP featuring tunes from the new album on their website. Over the next few months GB will hit nearly every nook and cranny of the country, so if you like what you hear be sure to check them out when they come to your town.
