The CD debuted at number 9 on the Airplay Direct Bluegrass charts for the month of February.
The duo has joined with the Graham Talent Group and is now accepting bookings for 2013 and beyond to promote their new CD, which will feature a wide variety of traditional and contemporary bluegrass music, as well as some classic country remakes and even a few southern gospel flavored tunes.
If you like traditional bluegrass and classic country music, you'll love the brand new release "Feller and Hill and the Bluegrass Buckaroos”.
Formed in the tradition of such legendary duos Flatt and Scruggs and the Osborne Brothers, Tom Feller and Chris Hill are also heavily influenced by classic country greats Buck Owens and Ray Price. Feller's solid, expressive lead vocals blend seamlessly with Hill's razor-sharp tenor vocals, culminating in an exciting new duo, Feller and Hill.
The CD has received praise and recognition from other industry greats, including Rhonda Vincent, Dudley Connell, Larry Stephenson, Larry Cordle, and many others.
“I’ve always enjoyed the blending of traditional country music and bluegrass, and Feller and Hill accomplish this superbly. From their soulful, vintage harmony arrangements on songs such as Buck Owens’ classic ‘Together Again,’ to the drive and instrumental prowess they demonstrate on the Delmore Brothers tunes, ‘Gonna’ Lay Down My Old Guitar’ and ‘Southern Moon,’ I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Feller and Hill. They would be a welcome addition to any festival lineup.”
--Dudley Connell (The Seldom Scene, The Johnson Mountain Boys, and Longview bluegrass bands)
In early September, 2012, Tom and Chris received word that a single from their demo release "Gonna Lay Down My Old Guitar" had reached number 9 on the Bluegrass Today weekly charts.
This accomplishment looks to be a sign of more good things to come, considering the single was only released for digital download via Airplay Direct. Such momentum can be attributed to the hard work and dedication these two young veterans are bringing to the table - and the stage!
“Duet singing has always been an important part of Bluegrass Music that in my opinion has been somewhat forgotten! Tom Feller & Chris Hill have put together a good duet with great material. Tom & Chris are working very hard to put together a good act that will entertain for year's to come. Give them a GOOD listen and ENJOY!”
--Larry Stephenson (Bill Harrell and the Virginians, The Bluegrass Cardinals, The Larry Stephenson Band)
“After listening to Chris Hill and Tom Feller’s duets on ‘Lay Down My Old Guitar,’ ‘Southern Moon,’ and ‘Together Again,’ I heard some beautiful traditional country music being redone. Their singing is tight and smooth, complimented by Steve Thomas’ playing his extraordinary ‘double stops’ on the fiddle and Brian Blaylock’s rock solid rhythm guitar and dobro performance. Chris Hill’s banjo playing is very melodic, smooth and reminiscent of the legendary Don Reno while Tom Feller keeps the timing rock solid on the acoustic bass and mandolin. I can’t wait to hear some more songs from these guys and their recording will be a very nice addition to your bluegrass and country music collection.”
