Rounder Records recording artists the Lonely Heartstring Band have now climbed into the AirPlay Direct “Top 50 All-Time” Americana / AAA Album Chart with their debut CD Deep Waters! They find themselves in very good company.
“When I heard this album the first time, I knew immediately that this was a unique and special act, with a very bright future," says Robert Weingartz, Chairman - AirPlay Direct / Collective Evolution. "We are proud to have signed The Lonely Heartstring Band as official AirPlay Direct Artist Endorsees, as they not only help define the present, but in doing so they contribute to the musical landscape and the future of the music industry. Congratulations to all involved.”
Marian Leighton Levy, Co-founder Rounder Records, states, “It has been a great privilege working with The Lonely Heartstring Band on their debut project. These guys are already proving themselves to be a major force in roots music, proven further by the incredible accomplishment of breaking into AirPlay Direct’s Top 50 All-Time chart. I’m excited to watch them grow as a band and to see what else their very bright future has in store for them.”
Though Deep Waters is the Lonely Heartstring Band’s debut album, it nonetheless feels deep, with a maturity and wisdom far beyond what one might expect from a first release by a relatively young band. Having come together officially only four years ago, the Lonely Heartstring Band has already been hailed by luminary Tony Trischka as having “carved out a fresh niche in modern bluegrass,” and similar accolades not often accorded to a debut outing.
