Furnace Mountain's New CD & Kickstarter Campaign
Furnace Mountain has just finished recording their fifth CD at Cabin Studios. They need help funding the post production work, so they've started a Kickstarter campaign. Contributions will cover mixing (by Danny Knicely), mastering (by Bill Wolf) and CD art (by Maria Nicklin, Fury Works Productions ), as well as the duplication and promotion of the CD. To be ready for their UK tour in June, the CD must be completed and sent for duplication by May 1, 2012.

New CD The Melody Lingers On
Danny is releasing a new CD this month with his lastest group. The Melody Lingers On is a collaboration of four versatile musicians--Danny, Aimee Curl, Nate Leath and Bert Carlson--with each bringing their own distinct style to the project. Their musical talents and tastes are wide, and it shows in the variety of styles on the CD, including bluegrass, jazz, old-time, swing, and Latin music. With so many ways to learn in this day and age, these musicians learned these songs the old fashioned way, from each other, and it comes through in the uniqueness of the arrangements and the material picked for the CD.
The new album is available on the CD page.
