"No sophomore slump here: On the Edge, the follow-up to Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen’s vibrant, self-titled debut record, finds the quartet serving up a musical feast... the band is poised to have a breakout year in 2013 when the acoustic music world gets an earful of the tight harmonies, strong songwriting, and deft picking found On the Edge."
– Juli Thanki, Engine 145
On The Edge showcases one of the most exciting and dynamic new bands in bluegrass, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen. With virtuoso guests Tim O’Brien, Rob Ickes and vocalist Megan McCormick joining Solivan’s skilled team of pickers, the album's 10 tracks virtually jump off of the CD as the band applies the muscle of traditional bluegrass and finesse of newgrass to material that reaches across the bluegrass and Americana spectrums. Frank Solivan’s tenor vocals soar over virtuosic picking provided by banjoist Mike Munford, guitarist Chris Luquette and bassist Danny Booth. With the release of On The Edge Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen are poised to become one of the most sought after bands in bluegrass.
