On cusp of the official release of their “True Grass Again” album from Pinecastle Records, Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road are thrilled to announce the addition of veteran grasser Randy Graham to their very talented band.
Randy will be singing and playing bass as the band sets out to support the album that is quickly becoming a new bluegrass anthem in the industry, asking the question “Why Can’t Blue Grass Just Be True Grass Again?”
Randy recorded on the album with Carolina Road and when Lorraine heard how seamlessly everything came together, she knew he was a perfect fit. Graham was a natural addition to the band when they had a spot to fill.
“I was looking for a voice to give the chorus of True Grass that special blend to match my harmony part,” says (Lorraine) Jordan. I remember hearing the early sounds of the Bluegrass Cardinals and Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. I was thinking that was the sound I needed..After doing some research I found that was the voice of Randy Graham. Randy was happy to come in and sing with us. I fell in love with his voice all over again and built the rest of the project around him. We are honored to have Randy as a full time Carolina Road member. He brings a lot of vocal experience to the band.”
Most will recognize Randy from his extensive career in music with bands including Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, The Bluegrass Cardinals, Baucom, Bibey, Graham and Haley, and Continental Divide. Randy’s work can be heard on 31 separate recording projects, and many of the songs he has recorded have gone on to become what many consider to be bluegrass classics. Randy also operates the Graham Talent Group which provides booking and tour support services to several internationally acclaimed bluegrass artists. Recently, Randy has relocated to the greater Raleigh (North Carolina) area, and is working with Jordan Entertainment as Marketing Director.
“I’m very happy to be the newest member of Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road! While a good many my age are hanging out at shuffleboard courts and greyhound parks, I’m still looking for new opportunities and mountains to climb.” Graham went on to say, “I’m a lucky guy. I get to make great music, like our current single, “True Grass.” I’m paid to do what some folks would pay to get to do. Lucky, indeed.”
