On May 18th, The Mighty Pines will release their first live album, The Mighty Pines Live.

Track listing and upcoming tour dates are listed below.

About The Mighty Pines

The Mighty Pines are a soul-inspired roots rock band influenced by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. With soaring vocals and thoughtful composition, the two principle songwriters shift the band’s sound from catchy rock ‘n’ roll to earthy instrumentals. The Riverfront Times heralds the band as “a talented young quartet engaged in the roots and rhythms of bluegrass but mixed with a more contemporary ear for harmony and production.”

Timothy Carbone will join The Mighty Pines on May 12th for their Live Album Release Show!

The Mighty Pines formed in 2012 and is made up of Neil Salsich (vocals, guitar), Gerard Erker (mandolin, banjo, vocals), John Hussung (bass, vocals) and Mike Murano (drums). They have released three studio albums, played hundreds of live shows and shared bills with renowned acts such as Greensky Bluegrass, Railroad Earth and Fruition across the country.

In February, the band recorded two singles with Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth. The first of which, “Farmer Song”, was recently released as the theme song to 2018’s Farmers United Tour, a three-stop tour across Missouri in support of local farms and healthy soil. They also won the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival’s King of the Roots Competition last month.
