    Mary Lee's "Fighting Demons" Named #1 Brasilian Album By Southern Rock Brasil

    Mary Lee & The B-Side Brothers have been steady touring Europe and Brasil promoting their new album “Fighting Demons” on Muddy Roots Records and the Brasilian community is taking note. The new record has been named the #1 Brasilian album by Southern Rock Brasil.

    Mary Lee Southern Rock Brasil

    Translated from below: “Mary Lee & the B-Side Brothers – Fighting Demons: No matter the name of the band that accompanies Mary Lee, she has the gift of making everything into something good. “Fighting Demons” shows this to every track and I say without being afraid to look like a jerk, few bands in the country are at the level of Mary Lee & the B-Side Brothers. The band has a great vocalist, but not only that, it is accompanied by great musicians and the compositions are top notch. “Fighting Demons” is not only an album of the highest quality by Brazilian standards, it competes with many released outside the country. One of my great frustrations of 2016 was not having watched this band live, but one hour it happens”

    What They Said About Muddy Roots On The Jerry Springer Show

    Dylan Walshe was invited to perform on The Jerry Springer Podcast Show this month in Ludlow, Kentucky. As expected, the show is hilarious and chock full of witty cracks. Good ol’ Jerry at it again.

    When announcing Dylan the hosts say “Dylan records on the Muddy Roots label. As soon as you hear that you know this man or woman is LEGIT because that’s a significant label in this modern world of roots music.”

    Dylan makes mention of how we met and brought him over to the Folk Alliance conference 3 years ago.
    Enjoy the full show HERE. Dylan starts singing around 35:00 It comes complete with a show sing along.

    Dana Sipos Sings In The Lost River Cave

    Just 400 feet from the mouth of a cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky a 437 foot deep river emerges from the ground and flows inward. The secret to the mystery is that the river is only 16 feet deep but connects to an underground river that pulls objects through the mud in to the cave. In the 1800’s men would throw a plum bob down to measure the depth and were fooled by the mischievous trickery of Mother Nature. Once the hiding place for Jesse James, a liquor distillery, and even a nature night club in the 1930’s. A perfect place for our very own Canadian songstress.

    Lost River Sesions WKU PBS asked Muddy Roots recording artists Dana Sipos to bless the river with a song.

    lost river sana sipos

    Lost River Sessions had to say, “Singer-songwriter Dana Sipos has one of the most mesmerizing sounds in the folk scene today. Crafting music that is as naturally lovely, and even haunting, as the landscapes and imagery that influenced her, Dana’s songs are vivid tales shaped greatly by her upbringing in the Canadian subarctic city of Yellowknife.

    With this in mind we knew we had to pair Dana’s uniquely imaginative music with the natural beauty and soundscape of Lost River Cave. Here is the first track from that session.”
