Donna Lee, Owner of Buddy Lee Attractions, Inc. (BLA) has announced the expansion of the agency representation to encompass Bluegrass performing artists. The announcement and agency progression follows suit to usher the commemoration of Buddy Lee Attractions’ 50th Anniversary celebration this year and arrives on the heels of the agency’s earlier announcement this week–BLA recently signed THE ROYS to an exclusive booking agreement for worldwide representation. BLA also introduces the addition of Jeff Brown & Still Lonesome (JBSL).
Made up of Jeff Brown (guitar/vocals), Austin Brown (bass), Josh Underwood (banjo/vocals), Kyle Murphy (fiddle) and Josh Blankenship (mandolin/vocals), JBSL released its CD entitled BLUE SIDE OF ME (Mountain Fever Records) on July 16, 2013 to high acclaim. The group’s respective single releases from the project, “Coal Mining Town” and “Lonesome Fugitive,” debuted in the Top 15 on the Bluegrass Today charts. Lead singer Jeff Brown is a former Lonesome Rambler (1993-1996). Before the formation of JBSL, Brown played numerous dates and recorded with Larry Sparks and The Lonesome Ramblers on the CD recordings entitled THE ROCK I STAND ON, I DON’T REGRET A MILE, BLUE MOUNTAIN MEMORIES and ALMOST HOME. He also toured with The Charlie Sizemore Band and stepped-in as a “hired hand” to accompany Blue Highway, Dr. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys, Jesse McReynolds, and received the special invitation from June Carter Cash to play bass for her husband, Johnny Cash. JBSL has performed on world famous stages including the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN and appeared on Austin City Limits and Song of the Mountains (PBS).
“The Bluegrass market is a difficult genre to break into and Jeff Brown & Still Lonesome have become a superlative new act to the format,” said Sherry Graf, who began her career at BLA in 1988 and will oversee the day-to-day administration of the JBSL activity. “Jeff Brown & Still Lonesome perform Bluegrass in a straight-forward, traditional style that conjure up visions of Larry Sparks’ Lonesome Ramblers and Ralph Stanley’s Clinch Mountain Boys. Their music speaks for itself and the early bookings alone demonstrate JBSL’s potential for a long live performance career.”
