Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice
From the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia comes one of bluegrass music's most honest voices in the genre's history, Junior Sisk. Over the years, his haunting, almost lonesome vocals have earned him the devotion of countless traditional bluegrass fans from all over the world. His songwriting talents helped the Lonesome River Band make their ascent into bluegrass stardom in the early 1990's and then he became a member of Wyatt Rice & Santa Cruz and ultimately Blueridge, again reaching new audiences that would eventually follow him on his own musical path. In 1998, Sisk formed Ramblers Choice and together they recorded and released their first solo project titled Sounds Of The Mountains and also contributed to the award winning The Stanley Gospel Tradition.
Nominated numerous times for Male Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA), Junior Sisk is at the top of his game and has surrounded himself with a top notch band of musicians including Jason Tomlin on bass and vocals; Chris Davis on mandolin and vocals; Billy Hawks on fiddle and vocals; and Jason Davis on banjo and vocals.
Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice are enjoyed great success with their Rebel Records CD, The Heart Of A Song which garnered numerous accolades including both the International Bluegrass Music Association's and SPBGMA's Album of the Year. "A Far Cry From Lester And Earl" won the IBMA and SPBGMA Song of the Year award as well. In addition, Junior also received SPBGMA's Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year Honor for 2013.
