Pinecastle has always placed an emphasis on fostering the talents of bluegrass’ up and co and has helped with the growth of the careers of Terry Eldredge, Jesse Brock, Josh Williams, and Kristin Scott Benson,among others.

Pro Piano Records grew from the concept that in the modern world of classical music, recorded music is a vital and key form of artistic expression, made all the more important by the ever present supply of conservatory students all nurtured on academically similar standards of technique and expression. It is much more realistic for an artist to breathe individually during a recording session than from the microscopic limitations of a concert stage. The public is simply too unforgiving of live performances which do not fit into their perceived mold of normalcy. However, recorded works are given the latitude of tolerance in respect to their individual creativity and expressiveness.
