We had the pleasure of recording an acoustic video session at Relix Magazine last month. Check out the video for “Heart of the Mountains”.

Also, we have a couple other recent press mentions lately surrounding the new album. Check out this interview with Joe from Grateful Web. And this nice piece from The Alternate Root.

“Heart of the Mountains” out today!

“Heart of the Mountains” is out today! We encourage you to purchase at PledgeMusic now through July 1st. You will get lots of extra downloads and cool videos in addition to the EP. Plus a portion of the sale gets donated to the National Park Foundation!

Here what the press has to say…
“This is a band that knows what it wants to play, and they do just that, and do it well.”
Deborah Grabien, No Depression

“Heart Of the Mountains is a strong statement from Mason Porter about the state of the band and its future, which is certainly as clear and wide open as the parks that the album celebrates. With the amount of material already released this year, it’s a safe bet we’re not done hearing from them, but for now, fans of modern bluegrass have six new songs of gold to treasure.”
Rex Thomson, Live for Live Music

“‘Heart Of The Mountains,’ while only six songs long, is a fully immersive experience that will leave you wanting to throw your tent and sleeping bag in the trunk and get away from it all, even if just for a weekend.”
Michael Lello, Highway 81 Revisited

“Here’s a group that has all the dynamics going for them; profound songwriting, effortless harmony, and genre-bending compositions that change on a dime. Never slowing down, allowing the currents of their tributaries to flow even further, Joe D’Amico (mandolin, guitar, vocals), Tim Celfo (upright bass, vocals), Paul Wilkinson (guitar, vocals), Sarah Larsen (violin) and Evan Smoker (drums) crafted their influential new studio statement to benefit and celebrate the National Park Service centennial.”
Dylan Muhlberg, Grateful Web
