With "Lovin' Pretty Women", the Steep Canyon Rangers dig even deeper into a traditional bluegrass sound, but with a sophisticated twist. It's an album filled with the vim and vigor of a band in love with making music. The Rangers have written their own material since they first started jamming together in a stairwell on the campus of UNC. The group is blessed with artistic vision, a gift for songwriting and an intense desire to create their own unique sound. That's why the Rangers have been able honor the bluegrass masters who came before while nudging the genre forward in new and exciting ways.
"Traditionally, bluegrass bands have gotten by playing all the standards," says Sharp. "Most of those songs have all been done and they've been done really well. Why try to recreate something that you can't outdo? So that was our motivation to just be original. It gave us the opportunity to figure out how to be unique within a format steeped in tradition."
The new album showcases a band at the top of its game, whether dipping their banjos and guitars in the gospel water of "Be Still Moses" or telling stories from the coalmines in "Call The Captain" and "Cumberland Moon." The Rangers' compelling harmonies throughout are testament to the band's belief that the voice is as vital a musical instrument as anything with strings.
Whether they're "Lovin' Pretty Women" or making new fans all over the world, there s one thing the Steep Canyon Rangers will definitely be doing creating timeless acoustic music that honors tradition, while boldly moving it into the future.
