DESCRIPTION:

For more than a quarter of a century, Acoustic Syndicate has been setting the pace for a style of music that fuses southern roots music, bluegrass, rock and roll and a healthy dose of improvisation in an approach that now permeates the American music scene. Hailed as a progenitor of and inspiration to generations of jam and jamgrass bands, the group has released seven albums and taken its distinctive, North Carolina-bred sound across the country more times than any of its members can recall. Now they embark on a new era of their storied career with their debut full-length studio release for Organic RecordsAll in Time.

Comprised of three cousins—Steve “Big Daddy” McMurry on guitar and lead vocals, along with brothers Bryon McMurry (banjo, guitar, vocals) and Fitz McMurry (drums, vocals)—and longtime bassist Jay Sanders, Acoustic Syndicate’s music has grown organically, earning them a loyal following and appearances at memorable events such as Bonnaroo and Farm Aid. Says Paul Kerr of JamBase, “Their modern take on traditional bluegrass and rock values culminates in a glimmering, driving sound rich with acoustic textures and glowing vocals.”

All in Time expands on a set of successful, previously-released singles that ran the gamut from personal, emotive, self-written songs to a revealingly wide-ranging group of covers: the Grateful Dead’s “Bertha,” Lou Reed’s “Rock and Roll” and Wille Nelson’s “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground.” The new additions—all originals, including the title track—round out a rich musical portrait of long-time masters replanting their indie-roots fusion flag on the rapidly re-emerging musical terrain they helped to establish and influence over 25 years ago.
