Dark Shadow Recording has signed Full Cord to its roster. For the past 15 years, Full Cord has been making a name for themselves blending traditional bluegrass music with jazz, western swing, and rock n’ roll while keeping the traditional bluegrass feel alive and well. These influences make every performance memorable and unique. Guitarist Eric Langejans, bassist Todd Kirchner, mando specialist Brian Oberlin, fiddler Grant Flick, banjo picker extraordinaire Gabe Hirshfeld and vocalist Katie Kirchner – are at the top of their game and gaining momentum fast.

Recent highlights include winning the 2021 ROMP Festival Band Contest in Owensboro, KY, 2021 IBMA Songwriters Showcase (Brian Oberlin; song "Downtown") and a performance at the Lincoln Theatre during the IBMA World Of Bluegrass in Raleigh, NC.

Stephen Mougin offers: "Full Cord is an exciting band-on-the-rise that has the whole package: great songwriting, tight picking, and excellent vocals. I was thrilled to catch their shows at IBMA this year after some friends told me about them during the festival season. Their performance energy is infectious and their breadth of material is impressive. I can’t wait to get started on their upcoming album to see what we can create together!"

"After seeing the success of the artists that Dark Shadow has worked with, I couldn’t think of a better label to partner with for our next project." says Todd Kirchner (bass, band leader). "I’m really looking forward to working with them."

Full Cord joins Dark Shadow’s roster of established artists including Becky Buller, Rick Faris, Laura Orshaw, Rick Lang, Stillhouse Junkies and Stephen Mougin.
