"East Of Monroe is a new bluegrass group based in Virginia and Maryland, made up of experienced musicians who have gotten together to focus on original music written primarily within the group.
Members include Billy Budd on bass, Gary Alan Ferguson on lead guitar, Jackie Frost on rhythm guitar, Lisa Kay Howard Hughes on mandolin, Wally Hughes on fiddle, and Terry Wittenberg on banjo.
Their debut album, By The River’s Edge, has just been released and the band has selected a focus track to present to radio. It’s called A New Song, and was written by Richard Ward, Emily Timberlake, Jackie Frost and Billy Budd. Frost takes the lead vocal on this one.
The album is available now wherever bluegrass music is sold online, including the band web site, and is offered to radio programmers via Airplay Direct."
