To listen to Sideline reminds the fan of why so many people fall in love w/bluegrass—pulse-pounding drive, songs sung from the heart, perfected timing & dynamics as well as a visceral emotion in the rendering. A band that was started as an off-season fun experiment has become a full-time dream team of players & singers, including its latest additions, Zack Arnold (mandolin), Jamie Harper (fiddle) & guitarist Jacob Greer.
Whether live or in the studio, the sextet moves dynamically from hard-hitting, neo-traditional covers of classic songs to new material, all curated by a band w/a perfect sense of who they are & what they have to say. Combine all this w/their on-stage energy & finesse as well as their powerful & affecting harmonies & you have the embodiment of the North Carolina Bluegrass sound. Sideline has released 5 national projects & records for the highly awarded Mountain Home Music Company based near Asheville, NC.
