Steep Canyon Rangers Team Up With Boyz II Men & The Asheville Symphony For “Be Still Moses”Read More
Steep Canyon Rangers have affirmed their place as one of the most versatile and idiosyncratic bands in all of contemporary American music. The GRAMMY® Award-winning, North Carolina-based sextet has spent nearly two decades bending and shaping the bluegrass aesthetic, wedding it to elements of pop, country, folk rock, and more to create something original and all their own.
Steep Canyon Rangers have been expanding the parameters of bluegrass since coming together in 2000. Since then, the genre-defying band has developed a remarkable catalogue of original music – predominantly co-written by Sharp and bassist Charles R. Humphrey III – that links them to the past while at the same time, demonstrates their ambitious intent to bring string-based music into contemporary relevance.
Their latest endeavor is collaborating with the Asheville Symphony and R&B legends Boyz II Men for a totally new version of the Rangers' song "Be Still Moses," releasing digitally on August 30 on Yep Roc Records.
