(Nashville, TN) June 14, 2013 –
Bluegrass band The Bankesters have started recording tracks for their
fifth album, and Compass Records debut, scheduled for release in the
fall. The new album is being produced by Compass co-founder Alison Brown
and, together with the band, they have completed several weeks of
pre-production with a great set of new material. The songs will showcase
their signature family harmonies and the distinctive lead voices of
each of the Bankester daughters, including 2012 IBMA Momentum Award
winner Emily Bankester.
and guitarist Phil Bankester comments: “Our first four projects were
recorded in our home and this is our first opportunity to record in a
real recording studio.  We’re extremely excited about working with
Compass Records and about this new recording project.” Emily Bankester
echoes those sentiments: “Hearing all the new material come together for
the first time is so exciting. I’m really looking forward to sharing
this project with everyone!”

The Bankester’s 2012 release Looking Forward was
re-released by Compass Records Group for broader distribution on May
28th and is currently eligible for the 2013 IBMA Awards. Engine 145 called the album one of the best of 2012 while the track “Looking Forward To Looking Back” climbed to the #1 spot on the Bluegrass Today airplay chart earlier this year.
