Urban Monroes: A New Single for a New Year

Mountain Sky Media is proud to announce the release of a new single by the Urban Monroes. Entitled “Lamp in the Window,” this upbeat bluegrass original was written by Fran Kent and it is a warm winter’s walk on a path heated by high-spirited fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass. These combine to illuminate a story of finding one’s way on a cold night’s journey.

Performed and produced by the Urban Monroes, the song has been released to Airplay Direct making it available for DJ downloads and is also available on CD to DJ’s by request. “Lamp in the Window” can already be heard on Bill Knowlton’s Bluegrass Ramble in Syracuse, New York, Gentleman Jim’s shows on World Wide Bluegrass, and many others.

The Urban Monroes have released two full length CD’s: One Fret Makes A Difference and Pavement and Pathways, the latter being released last May.
From those two albums the singles “Time of Your Life,” “When the Aspens  Turn” (another Fran Kent original), and “You Don’t Have to Move That Mountain” were released on Kentucky’s Poetman Records’ Acoustic Rainbow Radio Samplers to approximately 1400 radio stations internationally, as well as on AR Bluegrass Sampler Volume One.

During late November the band released two Holiday singles at Airplay Direct, which signaled the beginning of a very eventful season. Christmas Eve radio shows featuring the singles allowed the Urban Monroes to share the holiday hearths of all those listening to the various broadcasts. Then at the start of the New Year, the band found it had been featured on the Nashville DJ Public Showcase several times and were also in the Bluegrass Special’s Top 20 of 2011 Round Up.

“Lamp in the Window” is one of several singles slated for release in anticipation of a new Urban Monroes CD. Stay Tuned.
