Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Buttered Rum
"Stunning instrumental and vocal virtuosity."
–– Relix Magazine

"Few things rejuvenate the soul like a warm fireside drink after an exhausting day in the snow. Hot Buttered Rum has that effect. Their original songs are instantly familiar and inviting, and their easygoing versions of timeless classics (the Beatles, Hank Williams) belie the intricacy of the arrangements."
–San Francisco Chronicle

Hot Buttered Rum lives for songs. Songs to sing in the shower. Songs to crank through your earbuds at the DMV. Songs to name your babies after, and then make more babies to. The band's three songwriters — Aaron Redner, Nat Keefe and Erik Yates — spin tales about the good times, the bad times, and the roads in between, and belt them from the heart in three-part harmony. Bryan Horne's athletic standup bass and Lucas Carlton's tasteful percussion combine with the acoustic instruments to create what is California's own acoustic music.

Hot Buttered Rum lives for a good time. The group's onstage chemistry fuels the lovefest that is a live HBR show. A mindful recklessness settles in whenever these five guys step out of their front doors in northern California to entertain crowds from Anchorage to Miami.

Hot Buttered Rum's years of touring have given the band the chance to work and play with a wide cross-section of musicians, people like Phil Lesh, Chris Thile, Brett Dennen, and Robert Earl Keen. Seasoned veteran Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), acoustic guru Mike Marshall, and left-coast rocker Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips, Nicki Bluhm) have all produced studio albums for the band. Each guided HBR towards the next step in its evolution. It's a sound that's as tough to describe as it is easy to love, and it has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country: Telluride, Newport, Bonnaroo, Strawberry, Hardly Strictly, Kate Wolf, Horning's Hideout, String Summit, Grey Fox, All Good, High Sierra, Wakarusa, and many more.

At the center of Hot Buttered Rum is the enduring camaraderie of five best friends. The band was conceived on a backpacking trip of high school and college buddies in the High Sierra. What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands.
Six Feet In The Pine
Six Feet In The Pine
Six Feet in the Pine is not your daddy’s bluegrass.

Equal parts folk bluegrass, American folk, and dark bluegrass, they’ll send shivers down your spine. Rated by as the #1 bluegrass band in Salt Lake City, this motley ragtag gang has cut their teeth playing back-to-back with some of the great up-and-coming folk acts fighting for survival out west.

Like its spooky leader and songwriter, Devin Lee – a seriously bad dude who walks and talks his banjo as though it were an extension of his body – the band has a voice both gritty and powerful. Theirs is a sound reminiscent of the days of old, of darker times, personified beautifully by fallen angel Jennifer Ellen Yurth, whose haunting vocals tell stories that ask to bend your ear. With a hypnotically morose and minor songwriting style, they stand apart from the upbeat major sound common to much bluegrass.

Accompanying Lee and Yurth is guitarist and Southern gentleman Noel Black, whose flat-picking seamlessly blends rhythm and lead. Michael James McGinn strums thunder and picks lightning with his mandolin in a dance with the dark and hypnotic tones of Callie Reed’s fiddle, while Matt Conlin’s upright bass pumps blood into the heart of this unique and strange creature of Americana.

Six Feet in the Pine consistently delivers show-stealing performances whether opening for the likes of God Dam Gallows, Gypsy Moon, Turnpike Troubadours, Grainger Smith, and Mountain Standard Time, or headlining respected and unruly venues from Park City to the heart of downtown Salt Lake. Second to none in musicianship, with their grit and determination, this is a band that is not to be taken lightly.

The band is currently working on their first full-length album due out this November, with tour dates on the horizon.
