Brushfire Stankgrass is a bona fide Asheville original – a genre-bending, Moog-powered, ongoing exploration of modern mountain music.  Brothers Will and Ben Saylor, accompanied by Micah Thomas and Daniel Iannucci, with the love and support of a vibrant community of local musicians and creators, continue to reinvent themselves and their distinctive, jam-infused, synth-laden, bluegrass sound.

“The Rich Cache” was released in 2021 and is just that, a collection of buried tunes that the band has performed on stages great and small for over a decade, and finally, lovingly, self produced into a full length album.  Featuring fan favorites like “Appalachian Snow “ and “The Party Suite” the album evokes a true sense of the group’s history and evolution, and is a celebration of some of their most unique and lasting creations.  From traditional acoustic mastery to deep space synth vibes, their entire range is on full display.  

Tracked at Echo Mountain Studios in 2021, “City of a Thousand Hills” is the culmination of countless hours of practice and collaboration, consternation and celebration.  It is a rueful love letter to their mountain home, as well as a fervent call to action, continuing the band’s urgent message of preservation and conservancy in “Pretty Ass Blue Ridge Mountain Shit” that began with 2013’s Microclimates.  With contributions from much loved local talents and the engineering mastery of the good folks at Echo Mountain, the album represents the groups greatest achievement to date, both creatively and technologically.
