"A sound at once effortlessly modern and deeply traditional"—AllMusic
NewFound Road, from the rich bluegrass soils of southwestern Ohio, is among the most exciting new bands to emerge on the national bluegrass scene in the new millennium. Their powerfully streamlined sound combines honesty and passion, vivid songwriting from several members and spot-on, soaring three-part harmonies. Critical enthusiasm for this band has been unusually strong. The All Music Guide pointed to the "trademark rich, chesty baritone roar" of lead vocalist Tim Shelton, while CMT magazine enthused that "this quartet shines with deep gospel roots and bluesy material, tight harmonies, and a driving groove." We got a taste of NewFound Road at the 2011 Ann Arbor Folk Festival, and ever since then we've been hooked. Their latest album, "Live at the Down Home," contains a version of their awe-inspiring rendition of "Ain't No Sunshine."
