Mountain Fever Records is pleased to announce brand new music from Irene Kelley. Produced by Grammy winner Mark Fain, These Hills sees Irene Kelley's signature mix of Bluegrass, Country and Americana joined by what most would consider an artist's 'dream team' of musicians - Stuart Duncan (Fiddle), Adam Steffey (mandolin), Brian Sutton (guitar), Scott Vestal (banjo), Mark Fain (bass) - while also featuring harmony vocals by industry heavy-hitters Claire Lynch, Ronnie Bowman, Sharon White Skaggs, Cheryl White, Dale Ann Bradley, and Steve Gulley, as well as Irene's daughter, Justyna.
These Hills kicks off with Carolina Wind, which reached number one on Bluegrass Today's Top 20 Songs chart in May. From there, Kelley shows off her hauntingly rich vocal prowess with Coal Train which is only overshadowed by the stunningly sentimental-tinged title track, flowing effortlessly into Johnson's Hardware Store, a recollection of simpler times from days gone by.
From start to finish, These Hills begs the listener to live in the moments of each flawlessly written lyric, only to find themselves lost in the strikingly angelic melodies that are delivered through an often heartbreakingly beautiful voice.
