What They’re Saying About Town Mountain and Steady Operator:
“I think Town Moutain is one of the most unusual, yet most creative bands i’ve heard in years!  Fresh & traditional!” -Buddy Michaels, WBAG/WKRX/WLHC

“Town Mountain went on to play a rocking set of traditional bluegrass while wearing suits and ties, I would have never guessed from talking to the band. Jesse and Town Mountain are a group of extremely talented and laid back musicians. Be sure to make a point to check them out live or purchase a copy of Steady Operator” – Mike Hardaker, Mountain Weekly News

About Pinecastle Records:
Pinecastle Records has been a key player in the transmission of bluegrass music to the masses for the last 20 years. Orlando, Florida business man Tom Riggs started the label in 1989 as a favor to a friend who was looking for an outlet for their newly recorded CD. Pinecastle has long developed young artists including Kristin Scott Benson, Terry Eldredge, and Josh Williams and has also been the home to bluegrass legends such as the Osborne Brothers, Jim & Jesse, and Charlie Waller & the Country Gentlemen. In all, it has released nearly 250 projects.
Today, Pinecastle is situated in the mountains of southwestern North Carolina owned by businessman and medical doctor, Lonnie Lassiter. After taking ownership on August 1, 2010, Dr. Lassiter brought two of the company’s former executives on board to head up the new venture. Ethan Burkhardt was named the company’s Vice President of Operations and Matt Hood its Vice President of Public Relations.
