Pinmonkey is quickly gaining recognition among roots rock devotees. Their powerhouse single Barbed Wire and Roses stormed the Country Music Chart and their self-titled album was one of the most highly-anticipated and criticallyacclaimed country records of 2002.
All of this led to an Academy of Country Music nomination for Best New Group. This workhorse band has spent the last 3 years on the road, working with a virtual who’s who of Country Music royalty, including Tim McGraw and Willie Nelson.
On joining the Back Porch Records fold, lead vocalist Michael Reynolds comments, “We are very excited about signing with Back Porch. It feels like the perfect fit. We feel very lucky to be working with people who have such a great passion for music.”
Bassist Michael Jeffers adds, “And we are looking forward to getting back on the road and doing what we love - performing live!"
The new album not only features Pinmonkey originals, but also tracks penned by songwriting venerables Dolly Parton, Matraca Berg, and Bruce Robison. Pinmonkey will also embark on an extensive tour throughout 2006 to support the new album.
