Arden, NC (Crossroads) February 8, 2011 – Mountain Faith has just joined Mountain Home Music, a division of Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing. Mountain Faith is a young Bluegrass Gospel family from Sylva, a town in the mountains of Western North Carolina. This area has been a hotbed of Bluegrass talent including fellow Mountain Home artists Balsam Range. Mountain Faith is made up of Sam McMahan on bass, his daughter Summer Brooke McMahan on vocals and fiddle, and his son Brandon McMahan on banjo, and vocals. Joining the McMahans are John Morgan on guitar and vocals and Paul Harrigill on mandolin. All but Sam are young players still in their teens. This year celebrates the groups tenth year performing together.
GrammyÂ® Award-winning banjo player Marc Pruett adds: â€œMountain Faith presents sincere Christian music in the best of acoustic formats. They bring joy to their listeners through their youthful approach and skilled technique. It is a blessing to have Mountain Faith in our music community.â€
â€œAfter meeting with these great people and listening to their wonderful music,â€ shares Crossroads Production Manager Jeff Collins, â€œI was ready to get them on board to our Mountain Home label family. Go ahead and make a note of itâ€”you will be hearing great things from Mountain Faith! With Tim Surrett producing, and with their inspiring song writing, Mountain Faith is poised to become a gospel bluegrass heavy hitter!â€
Their Mountain Home debut project will release in May 2011.
