Graham Sharp (banjo, harmony vocals) met future bandmates Woody Platt (guitar, lead vocals) and Charles R. Humphrey III (bass, harmony vocals) in 1999, while all three were attending the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Drawn together by their love of acoustic music, they began playing impromptu jam sessions. The main impetus to “go bluegrass” was the input of mandolin player Mike Guggino, an old friend of Platt’s. He owned a cabin in the mountains near the school, and the quartet used that as its rehearsal space. What has emerged is a real collaboration of musicians—creating music that they are passionate about, and blending it with humor to form a sophisticated show. Recent appearances include Austin City Limits, the Late Show with David Letterman, and the Today Show, and performances at Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, as well as their own Mountain Song festival.

“True bluegrass, when done well, is a thing of art and the Steep Canyon Rangers are the genre’s current Rembrandt.” –

This World Oft Can Be, Della Mae’s Rounder debut, shows that the band is respectful of American musical tradition, but not restricted by it, combining centuries’ worth of musical influences with an emotionally tough, undeniably modern songwriting sensibility. In a relatively short period of time, they have become a sensation in the music world, commanding a powerful collective chemistry with vocal, instrumental, and songwriting talent to spare. This World Oft Can Be, recorded at Johnny Cash’s cabin in Hendersonville, TN and mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, The Pixies, Uncle Tupelo), mines time-honored elements to create music that’s unmistakably fresh and contemporary.

The Steep Canyon Rangers are proof that traditional bluegrass music can adapt to its times without losing its history. Della Mae is a young all-female bluegrass band whose melting pot of musical talent, feisty tracks and spirited execution make them a force to be reckoned with. Sparks will fly when these two bluegrass powerhouses come together.
