Newton and Thomas are both native Virginians who struck out separately in the music business decades ago and had completely different experiences. Now that their paths have converged, they have blended their various musical flavors together to share with Americana, Bluegrass and Country music fans everywhere.

“I have had the opportunity to work with many artists over the years and Mark and Steve are two of the finest I have known, both personally and professionally. They bring an exciting, entertaining, and energetic performance every time they take the stage. Whether it’s a tune about modern day struggles such as Old MacDonald Sold The Farm” or classics like Pineywood Hills, they pour passion and talent into the gas tank and put the car on the highway to eclectic musical journey that is not to be missed,” Steve Johnson, Event Producer

With the two banded together, the "sideman" becomes a "frontman," and the "frontman" becomes a "partner." Both men are native Virginians who both struck out seperately in the music business decades ago, with both having completely different experiences. Now that both of their paths have converged, they are eager to blend their various musical flavors together to share with bluegrass and Americana fans everywhere. They are joined by bass player Matt Wallace who rounds out the trio that will be touring the country.
