Unspoken Tradition Releases “Land,”

Available May 11 On The Mountain Home Label

Arden, North Carolina (May 3, 2018) — Emerging North Carolina outfit Unspoken Tradition brings a new depiction of a time-honored subject with their new single “Land.”

Written and sung by the band’s guitar player Audie McGinnis,
it’s a first-person telling of a simple landowner that finds dignity in
a life led elemental. At the same time, the chorus warns that a way of
life, once lost, cannot be artificially manufactured.

“Land”is
a modern take on sentiments found in Bluegrass standards like “Little
Cabin Home on the Hill” and “Blue Ridge Mountain Home.” Classic themes
made new through a creative arrangement and original writing by a band
that consciously uses an evolving style to connect the traditional to
the contemporary.

“‘Land’ is about my fear that we are doing irreversible damage to our home,” says McGinnis.
“I left the very small town I grew up in to live in one of the largest
cities in North Carolina. It seemed like everywhere I looked, nature was
being choked out by concrete, and the city seemed to gain nothing in
culture or identity. It made me miss the open farmland that surrounded
the area where I grew up, a place that was teeming with local color.
‘Land’ reminds us of what should be important and that which can never
be replaced. We can pave over it, we can build skyscrapers on it, but
we’ll never be able to make more of it. We have to protect what’s been
given to us.”

An accompanying video filmed in Mills River, NC features the band amid the scenic Western North Carolina region they call home. The video and song will premiere May 9 at The Bluegrass Situation, before its official release May 11.

After two independently produced albums of nearly all original material,
the group has begun work on their first selection of recordings for the
award-winning Mountain Home label to be released throughout 2018.
