Full Cord releases new album "Cambium"

2022 IBMA Momentum Band Award winner and 2022 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition winner, Michigan-based Full Cord releases their long-awaited album Cambium on Dark Shadow Recording.

Following three singles that received strong airplay, spending time on the Bluegrass Today Grassicana Charts, as well as a #1 for “I Laugh When I Think How I Cried Over You” (Bluegrass Planet Radio), Full Cord presents their full-length project Cambium. Comprised of a wide range of genre-appropriate tunes and themes, the collection ranges from light-and-bouncy to substantially deep. The popular Steely Dan cover of “Reelin' In The Years” is a long-time fan favorite, “Yellow Leaves Of Autumn” a classic western ballad, “Wild Mountain Rose” a Telluride-inspired cowboy tale, the painfully sentimental “Blue Trail” hits home in a big way, and their take on the Carter Family “Dixie Darling” is a sprightly turn towards the positive. That's just scratching the surface.

From producer Stephen Mougin: “We worked hard to capture some of the spark from their live shows. The material is complex, both musically and emotionally, and it was a fun challenge to dig deeper into those songs and find new ways to connect.”

Tonight Full Cord will celebrate Cambium with an album release concert at the World Famous Station Inn, Nashville, TN and on Saturday (11/11) the band will play on the WDVX's “Blue Plate Special” live at Noon in Knoxville, TN.
