Guitarist Steve Gulley had already won esteem for his lofty tenor voice
and emotional delivery as an entertainer at Kentucky's historic Renfro
Valley before he joined Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, bringing him
before a wider but no less appreciative audience.
Steve was also a founding member of the bluegrass group Mountain Heart
where he recorded five highly acclaimed CDs as the lead singer for that
He has been tapped as a harmony and featured singer on projects like
the widely-praised Keith Whitley album, "Sad Songs and Waltzes," and
many others including projects by Ronnie Bowman, Dan Tyminski, Tim
Stafford, David Parmley, Dale Ann Bradley, Jeff Parker and Grasstowne's
own Phil Leadbetter just to name a few.
He has also earned multiple Male Vocalist of the Year nominations from
the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America.
Steve's first solo project titled "Sounds Like Home" has just been released
on the Lonesome Day Records label. More about this project in the CD Store.
In December 2006, Steve joined fellow musicians Alan Bibey and Phil
Leadbetter to form Grasstowne, a bluegrass/acoustic band. The new group,
which includes newcomers Jamey Booher and Jason Davis,
began touring in February 2007..
