Mixing analog electronics with bluegrass backbeats, the music of Brushfire Stankgrass is instantly unique. The band has significant crossover appeal with bluegrass/newgrass buffs and electronic music fans alike, showcasing their “modern mountain fusion” with a dynamic live show and a two award-winning albums. Brushfire Stankgrass holds Asheville’s #1 ranking for bluegrass bands on reverbnation.com.  Their sophomore effort Microclimates is currently ranked #2 on the Relix &  jambands.com radio airplay charts and was named as one of  WNCW’s top 100 releases of 2013. 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 (both are seasoned and well known Asheville musicians), the groups chemistry is obvious.  Their debut album 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. Last year’s live performance highlights included nearly 100 tour dates, and several notable festival appearances. WNCW listeners voted One for the Salamanders as a top ten regional release of the year and both albums are currently available from all major online music stores.  Microclimates features several top tier guest performers and is on track to remain on the radio charts well into the spring. Brushfire Stankgrass invites you to smell their sounds.
