STEVE GULLEY IS BACK TO HIS ROOTS

STEVE GULLEY IS BACK TO HIS ROOTS
WITH “FAMILY, FRIENDS & FELLOWSHIP”
New Single Released From His first Gospel Album Coming July 22nd
 
Nashville, TN (May 28, 2014)   Steve Gulley is back to his roots with his new single and album FAMILY, FRIENDS & FELLOWSHIP on Rural Rhythm Records
The Gulley family name enjoys a rich musical heritage that reaches
across three generations with strong roots in gospel music.  It starts
with long time radio personality Don Gulley who was a founding member of the bluegrass group the Pinnacle Mountain Boys.  Steve Gulley performed for many years with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, was a founding member of Bluegrass supergroups Mountain Heart and Grasstowne, was a regular featured performer at Renfro Valley and now performs with Dale Ann Bradley.   Finally Steve’s son, Brad Gulley, is an emerging solo artist in Bluegrass and Roots music who previously fronted Cumberland River.  
 
When Steve first started putting together the songs for FAMILY, FRIENDS & FELLOWSHIP,
he quickly realized why he had felt the call to do this recording.  So
much of the music that he kept coming back to during the selection
process was the music of his youth and songs with messages that helped
strengthen his faith and make his spiritual walk so much more
meaningful.   As Steve recalls, “Having
come to know the Lord at an early age and having been brought up in a
musical and Christian home, songs of faith were at the very fiber of our
family unit and individual being. The old “red book” Baptist hymnal was
a staple in our little mountain church house and is filled with some of
my very favorite songs of all time.”
You’ll find some of those on
this album as well as some new original tunes all done in bluegrass,
country – flavored and modern acoustic arrangements.
 
Joining Steve on his FAMILY, FRIENDS & FELLOWSHIP
album is an incredible list of family and friend All-Star performers
and musicians who were hand-picked to help make the songs and their
message come to life in the most special way possible.  Guest performers
on this album include Doyle Lawson, Joe Mullins, Dale Ann
Bradley, Rickey Wasson, Kenny & Amanda Smith, Les Butler, Don
Gulley, Vic Graves, Debbie Gulley, Linda
Gulley and Brad Gulley.  They are backed by an impressive list of musicians including Adam
Steffey, Tim Stafford, Ron Stewart, Mark Fain, Phil Leadbetter, Alan
Bibey, Jason Burleson, Brandon Godman, Stuart Wyrick, Scott Powers,
Bryan Turner, Gary Robinson, Jr.
and Mark Laws.
 
“My goal for this album is to share my
spiritual journey through music that will hopefully make the listener
think, reflect, reminisce and rejoice all while lifting their spirits
and warming their soul”
Steve Gulley (Singer, Songwriter, Producer)
 
Produced by Steve Gulley and recorded at the Curve Recording Studios in Cumberland Gap Tennessee, FAMILY, FRIENDS & FELLOWSHIP contains
14 songs with a wide range of songwriters including many Steve Gulley
original songs along with songs written by contemporary songwriters and
standards by Ronny Hinson, Hank Williams, G.T. Speer, E.M. Bartlett, Carl Story, Gary Kidwell and more.
 
Steve’s first single from the album certainly accomplishes his goal with the uplifting gospel standard “Victory In Jesus” which has a fresh feel with those Steve Gulley signature vocals and performed by an All-Star Bluegrass cast including Tim Stafford (Guitar), Adam Steffey (Mandolin), Ron Stewart (Banjo & Fiddle), Mark Fain (Bass) with harmony vocals by Bryan Turner.
