From the side porch of an old gristmill to the main stage of The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, BlueBilly Grit has quickly become a force in Bluegrass and Americana. Their modern style, which blends these two genres of music, has a way of appealing to the newer generation of the grassroots movement and to those that have a love for the more traditional sound. Their unrivaled three part harmony, traditional instrumentation, and the lead vocals of their soulful female singer are what make this magical blend work. In February of 2011, an original song written and recorded about the old gristmill was shipped to 800 radio stations in the U.S., Europe, and Australia. The song was released on a compilation CD along with songs from Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, Steve Martin, and The Grascals. This past year, BlueBilly Grit did several radio and TV spots, including "Nuts and Bolts of Fishing" which aired on Turner Sports South and the "Moby in the Morning Show," a nationally syndicated radio show based in Atlanta. They also added winning the 2012 Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition to the list of their accomplishments. After releasing their second album, “Ready for a Change,” the group hooked up with Life Springs Studios to work on a third album, "BlueBilly Grit Live at The Melting Point", and a live video performance, which has just been released. Amidst much uncertainty in the musical world of today, BlueBilly Grit seems to be holding their course, and humbly admits that a source greater than themselves appears to be calling the shots. BlueBilly Grit takes pride in the fact that they’re not just another “hot lick, blazing solo” bluegrass band. It’s all about the song with this group, and rightly so because they have something to say!
