North Carolina can once again be credited for producing great bluegrass. Hailing from just south of Charlotte, Deeper Shade of Blue is comprised of Jim Fraley (banjo/vocals), Jason Fraley (mandolin/vocals), Troy Pope (guitar/vocals), Frank Poindexter (dobro), and Scott Burgess (bass). The band has been together just over 17 years and has self-produced six albums. A quick search on YouTube will no doubt prove why this band has been a favorite in their home state for years. With their tight harmony singing, they've been lauded as a top notch vocal group and one that regional festivals have added to their lineup consistently. With the addition of Mountain Fever Records to their team and the release of STEAM, fans and the music industry can expect Deeper Shade of Blue to make waves on an international level very soon.
