Head for the Hills: New Drew Emmitt Produced Album & Tour

Head for the Hills
The acclaimed Colorado bluegrass quartet, Head for the Hills, is poised to release their sophomore studio effort, aptly entitled Head for the Hills. This endearing release from the group represents a thoughtful and dynamic musical exploration. The 10 track journey captures the group's creative intuition, and additionally, the essence of their awe-inspiring live performances.

An esteemed cast of heavyweight personalities joined forces with Head for the Hills for the highly anticipated project: Producer Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon), audiophile engineer Gus Skinas (Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, George Harrison), as well as mix engineer and 2009 Grammy Winner Vance Powell (Willie Nelson, The Raconteurs, Jack White). The album features special guests: Drew Emmitt, Billy Nershi (String Cheese Incident), Anders Beck (Greensky Bluegrass), Kyle James Hauser, and James Thomas.

The album is available now. Visit the album mini-site, complete with exclusive video footage, song selections from the new album, press reviews and more: here.
