Fresh growth on the bluegrass family tree comes from Asheville, NC’s Brushfire Stankgrass. The band has significant crossover appeal with bluegrass/newgrass and jam rock fans alike, showcasing their “modern mountain fusion” with a dynamic live show and a two award-winning albums.  Stankgrass blends the traditional with  a grassy fusion inflected by analog-electronics and a hard hitting rhythm section.

Despite the fact that the band is not a “strictly traditional” bluegrass band, Brushfire Stankgrass currently holds the #1 global ranking in the bluegrass category on  Their sophomore release Microclimates debuted at #2 in Relix Magazine’s jamband radio charts and was named as one of WNCW’s top 100 releases of 2013. The album charted in the top 25 for 6 months. The debut album One For the Salamanders was featured in Relix Magazine’s top radio airplay charts in 2011, climbing as high as #2 and staying in the top 5 for 3 months. The two founding members (Ben and Will Saylor, banjo and guitar) are brothers who have been playing music since the age of three. Together with a rhythm section comprised of Micah Thomas on drums and Daniel Iannucci on bass (both are seasoned and well known Asheville musicians), the group’s chemistry is obvious.

The past year’s live performance highlights for Brushfire Stankgrass included nearly 100 tour dates, and several notable festival appearances. Both of the band’s albums are currently available from all major online music stores, and there is a large catalog of live shows posted on and soundcloud.  Brushfire Stankgrass invites you to smell their sounds.’
