Nu-Blu Announces Upcoming Album Vagabonds Set for Release April 28

Lead Single “Still Small Voice” Featuring Jimmy Fortune Available Now

NASHVILLE, TENN. (March 8, 2016) – Bluegrass/Americana breakout stars Nu-Blu are gearing up for the release of their upcoming project, Vagabonds.
The album will serve as the award winning band’s sixth studio album,
and is set for release on April 28. The album is fueled by the latest
lead single, “Still Small Voice
featuring Country Music Hall of Fame Statler Brothers member Jimmy
Fortune. The project will be released via Voxhall Records, and made
available on iTunes, Amazon and wherever music is sold.

Vagabonds has been an emotional endeavor from the
beginning. For seven years now, having spent over 200 days each on tour,
the road has become our home,” says Nu-Blu’s Carolyn Routh. “We have
seen a lot, done a lot, and embraced life not only through our own
experiences, but also through the lives of those we have met. This
project reflects the collective heart and soul of them, and of ourselves
along the way.”

Vagabonds first single is “Still Small Voice,” featuring
Jimmy Fortune, who also co-wrote the song alongside Tony Lopacinski and
Devin Belle. Accompanying lead singer Carolyn Routh and Fortune on
harmonies is Dove Award winning singer Ben Isaacs. The song has already
begun to generate traction since being released earlier this year,
recently climbing its way to No. 3 this week on Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Contemporary Bluegrass Song Chart, which counts down the top songs in the genre.

Standout songs on the album include the feel-good track, “A Lot More
Love,” which has universal appeal with its inspiring sing-along message.
Key lyrics on the song include the line, “we could all use a little
less hate, and a lot more love,” with other lines through the song
tackling the problems of the world. The song “Gypsies on Parade” is the
inspiration behind the album title, which touches on the struggles of
being on the road touring. Like previous albums, powerhouse
lead-vocalist Carolyn Routh hits the high notes on ballads like the
heartbreaking “640 Battlefield Drive” and the warm “Surround Me With

Nu-Blu also takes on some of country and rock music’s biggest hits,
with a new approach. The rock anthem “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” was
remade with a fresh, bluegrass approach. The song was originally
released by Bob Dylan in 1973, while also being re-recorded by singers
like Eric Clapton and Guns N’ Roses. The band also recorded a version of
“Good Hearted Woman,” a record made famous by country music icons
Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, where it hit the top of the charts in

About Nu-Blu:
Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque
small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo
Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the
band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight
train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale.
Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who
also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Clint
White on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered,
American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick
work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all
with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of
shows on the road.
