The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled
Talent counts for a lot, but perseverance arguably counts for at least as much, and NewFound Road’s lone remaining founding member, Tim Shelton, has plenty of both. A native of and still resident in southwest Ohio — arguably the buckle of the bluegrass belt — he’s done a stellar job of piloting the group from its origins as a strictly gospel outfit to one that can tackle material ranging from Ray Charles to The Stanley Brothers, thanks in large part to a nice blend of muscular voice and quiet charm. Brothers Joe (mandolin) and Jamey (bass) Booher bring an unsurprising musical closeness to the table, while banjo man Josh Miller supplies plenty of drive. And with nearly a year’s worth of extensive touring under their collective belt, the quartet has the kinks ironed out and is well settled into delivering some powerful and nicely distinctive contemporary bluegrass.
