Bawn in the Mash

Bawn in the Mash is set to release their third independent album entitled Confluence (2009).

A confluence is defined as the flowing together of two or more streams. With producer Chris Henry at the helm, Confluence takes listeners on a trip down distributary into uncharted waters, channeling the wavelengths & frequencies available in Western Kentucky.
Bawn in the Mash's first release, Welcome to the Atomic City (2006), was produced & recorded by Col.Dan Knowles. Welcome to the Atomic City is a collection of 12 original compositions that historically interpret events that might have occurred during the last 150 years in Western Kentucky. Living downtown Paducah, the group spent much time absorbing the energies of the Ohio, Tennessee, and Clarks Rivers. Songs like Land Between the Rivers, Paducah, Past the Painted Wall, The Nuclear Waltz, & At the Hotel Irvin Cobb pay tribute to a land faded & forgotten in favor of the notion of progress in America. During the recording of Welcome to the Atomic City, the band frequently showcased the material aboard the Delta Queen Steamboat and River Barge Explorer.
Produced by Grammy winning recording engineer Phil Harris, Hurry Up and Wait (2007) was recorded in May 2007 at Battle Ridge Studio, located outside Nashville, Tennessee. Spending nearly two weeks at the BRS, the band put together 16 new compositions with special guest appearances by Donnie Herron (BR5-49, Bob Dylan Band) Tyler Grant (Drew Emmitt Band, Emmitt Nershi Band, Tavern Grass), and Chris Black.
