About the Band: Mountain Soul taps deep Appalachian roots. Bluegrass tones underscore a modern Americana sound. Traditional-based harmonies embellish homegrown stories of love, loss, and coal in a post-TVA South.

Mountain Soul’s eclectic arrangements and honest songwriting have meshed to become an exciting new sound in Americana music. Brothers Daniel and Cory Kimbro have continued in the dynamic performance tradition they learned from their parents. Jonathan Maness brings the crucial third part to their brother harmony while incorporating a unique flatpicking guitar style, and Mike Seal’s refreshing resophonic and electric guitar stylings complete Mountain Soul’s version of Appalachian roots music.
