The Foothills are an acoustic trio from Chattanooga, Tennessee who blends a diverse range of Americana traditions - folk, country, blues, soul, and bluegrass - in an effort to create timeless musical statements that delicately balance artistic integrity and popular appeal.
Since forming in early 2018, the band has had the opportunity to perform at venues such as The Signal and Songbirds, were finalists in the Road to Nightfall showcase, and have appeared on NPR's Afternoon Music with Richard Winham and Chattanooga Times Free Press' Music Wednesdays.
On their debut release, Shadow of the Mountain, the band faces up to the struggles of life and finding hope against all odds. At their core, the songs are intended for rugged souls. Recorded at The Soundry, the six track EP also features banjo extraordinaire Randy Steele of Slim Pickins Bluegrass Band, drummer JG Oliver of Monday Night Social, and keyboardist Brett Nolan who also engineered, mixed, and mastered the album.
Shadow of the Mountain will be available on all major music streaming platforms on November 16, 2018.
