Chicago based band Henhouse Prowlers release their first single, "My Little Flower" from their album Lead and Iron (September). The song premiered Tuesday morning on Smoked Country Jam with Michelle Lee on WOBL Gold Country and Bluegrass Today premiered the accompanying music video.

The song was written by the band's mandolinist, Jake Howard, who also sings the lead. The band is completed by Ben Wright on banjo/vocal, Chris Dollar on guitar/vocal, and Jon Goldfine on bass/vocal.

Producer Stephen Mougin shares: "The Henhouse Prowlers really knocked it out of the park with this tune and can’t wait for folks to hear it! Solid, uptempo, traditional bluegrass with a twist, trio vocals throughout the entire song, and some fiery solos - what more could you ask for?!”

Ben Wright, one of the founders of Henhouse Prowlers, says: “We’re so excited to release the first song from our new album, Lead and Iron. The Prowlers have always straddled the line between traditional and progressive bluegrass, and we know Jake’s My Little Flower exemplifies that perfectly. The drive and lyrics embrace both sides of the music we love so much.”

About Henhouse Prowlers:

Founded 17 years ago with the simple desire to play original and powerful bluegrass, this quartet now finds themselves at the intersection of performance, diplomacy and education. On stage, the group's enthralling performances give audiences a sense of how much they love what they do. On record - including their 2021 release and ninth full length album, The Departure - the band explores their collective life experiences through songwriting and intricate instrumentation. While bluegrass is the undeniable foundation of the Prowlers music, the band bends and squeezes the traditional form into a sound all their own.

Working with the U.S. State Department and under their own nonprofit, Bluegrass Ambassadors, the Prowlers have toured over 25 countries across the globe. The group's experiences with people and musicians across Africa, Asia, Europe, and The Middle East have shaped the band’s world view and broadened the group’s direction towards bridging cultural gaps with music, educational programs and workshops. Using traditional American music as a foundation, connecting folk music and cultures the world over, the Prowlers incorporate international elements into their already robust repertoire of unique traditional American music.

Whether performing live or presenting workshops, and wherever they are, the Henhouse Prowlers find and spread the commonality we share as human beings through the universal language of music. You can feel it at every show.
