Raw, soulful, and with plenty of swagger, Town Mountain is released their 5th studio album Southern Crescent on April 1, 2016 through LoHi Records. Recorded in a decidedly old-school way, live, with minimal fixes and overdubs, with all the musicians in the same room, the album was produced and engineered by GRAMMY winner Dirk Powell and mixed by Scott Vestal at Digital Underground.

Town Mountain (Robert Greer on vocals & guitar, Jesse Langlais on banjo & vocals, Bobby Britt on fiddle, Phil Barker on mandolin & vocals, and Nick DiSebastian* on bass) made their way to the little south-central Louisiana town of Breaux Bridge, where they recorded their most cohesive, most satisfying album to date at Powell’s studio, The Cypress House. Adam Chaffins* plays bass in the touring outfit.
Southern Crescent is full of variety from the boogie-woogie piano of Jerry Lee Lewis that inspired the delightful (and danceable) "Coming Back to You," to Greer's cleverly penned and fast-paced "Tick on a Dog," which offers a taste of another major bluegrass influence, Jimmy Martin. Barker, Langlais and Greer the chief writers in the band and the group members' palpable chemistry (and individual artistry) are displayed throughout such instantly memorable tracks as "Wildbird," and "I Miss the Night."
LoHi Records, based in Greensboro, N.C., is a partnership formed by entrepreneur & marketing veteran Jim Brooks with singer/songwriter & record producer Todd Snider, record producer Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth), and Chad Staehly from Gold Mountain Entertainment in Nashville.
“They have stuck with their deep bluegrass roots but as they have with all of their releases they have grown and expanded. They sound like Carolina, and they carry that sound farther and farther with Southern Crescent” --Jim Lauderdale
"The past echoes through Town Mountain, clear through to the future. To bluegrass fans I'd say the genre is in good hands. But you will dig the rough edges too! They're a shot of 100 proof bluegrass with a honky-tonk chaser!" --Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth)
