Love Cannon, the Asheville, North Carolina based bluegrass cover artists, have announced a new LP titled Cover Story. This will be the band’s third album, and comes on the heels of a new deal with Organic Records and Moonstruck Management.
If you are unfamiliar with the bluegrass reimagining of 80’s favorites that is the body of work by Love Cannon, change that. Years ago we caught their set at the inaugural LOCKN’ Festival, and were completely floored. Their take on Toto‘s Africa is brilliant.
Guitarist Jesse Harper spoke about the new deal:
“We are super excited to be working with Josh and his team at Moonstruck. They have proven to be a guiding light and loyal champions of some of our musical heroes Lonesome River Band, Ralph Stanley, Russell Moore, Dan Tyminski & The Soggy Bottom Boys and more,” says Harper. “The band is really looking forward to starting this new chapter in our ongoing adventure with Moonstruck at the helm! And with their help we are happy to have found a home at Organic Records and are looking forward to releasing new material with a company that has consistently put out high quality acoustic music. It is a rare and beautiful thing to find kindred spirits who care about the music as much as we do.”
