Magnolia Mountain Album Release Showwith:
- the perfect children
- Veronica Grim & The Blue Ribbon Boys
“Beloved” is a recorded introduction to the newest edition of Magnolia Mountain, still rootsy but with a Rock/Southern Soul approach based around electric guitars, bass and keyboards, featuring all three MM vocalists (Utley, Renee Frye, and Melissa English) in featured roles. Think of a mix of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and 60s/70s Muscle Shoals southern R&B, as a reference for what the “Beloved” album holds in store.
Utley’s “Four Chords and a Lie” album is a 50/50 mix of five straight-up Honky Tonk Country songs recorded with his all-star side band Bulletville, and five more stripped-down, intimate solo songs.
Utley and Bulletville will start out Magnolia Mountain’s portion of the evening with several songs from the “Four Chords” album before passing the stage over to Magnolia Mountain to perform the “Beloved” record in its entirety.
Kicking off the show are the one-two punch of high-octane, kickass, female-fronted powerhouses The Perfect Children and Veronica Grim & the Blue Ribbon Boys.
