GREENVILLE, S.C. – Bonfire Recording Company announces signing bluegrass band Borrowed Tyme and the release of their eponymous label debut album on July 6th, 2018. Their first Bonfire single “Little Bessie” is now available to radio on AirPlay Direct. Fans can purchase the single and pre-order the album on Bandcamp.
The band’s performance on the album is heavy on originals with six of the twelve selections written or co-written by band members. The album marks a series of upcoming releases produced by Tony Wray (Blue Mafia, Tyminski) for Bonfire Recording Co. and Studios including some original material of his own.
“I’ve been with Pinecastle Records for several years,” said Wray, “When given the opportunity to do the same with Bonfire Recording Studio, I jumped at the offer! An awesome studio space, people that care about the artist, top notch equipment with great artists and engineers. Looking forward to working there for many years!”
When Borrowed Tyme was contemplating where to start recording their first album, Wray was the first to come to mind. The band asked him to produce, record, mix and master the album. Wray said, “They have grown as a band and I couldn’t have been happier with their performance on this project. If you want good traditional grass with originals written by the band, this is the perfect CD for you.”
Formed in late 2015, Borrowed Tyme’s vocal harmonies are often heard soaring above Roger Brown’s clean, crisp mandolin style and Josh Wood’s driving style of banjo. Rounding out the other half of the group is Dan Canerday and his seasoned style of guitar and Rick Wilson’s dynamic bass playing.
