The Malpass Brothers have signed an exclusive recording contract with Crossroads’ Organic Records, with the new recording to be produced by Bluegrass legend, Hall of Fame member Doyle Lawson. A spring 2015 release is projected. The label signing comes in the same week as the NC brothers’ performance during the World of Bluegrass festival in Raleigh, and a week after drawing accolades for their showcase appearance at Atlanta’s FOX Theatre during Performing Arts Exchange. The Malpass Brothers appeared by invitation in the elaborate showcase produced by JRA Fine Arts of Nashville, featured alongside the Annie Moses Band, Mike Farris & others. They have been selected to appear in juried showcase at the upcoming Mid-Atlantic Performing Arts Market in Lancaster, PA on Nov. 11.
“My brother Taylor and I do the type of music we do because this music speaks to us, and speaks to the souls of its listeners,” said Chris Malpass. “For us, traditional country music is the ‘real deal.’”
“It is so refreshing to hear these two men who may be young in years but have a deep love and understanding for the heart and soul of true country music,” said Doyle Lawson. “The Past is the Future.”
