Magnolia Mountain

Led by singer/songwriter Mark Utley, Cincinnati's MAGNOLIA MOUNTAIN embraces and explores "The Midwestern Thing" in a big-tent-Americana juggernaut that draws from rock, southern soul, folk, country, bluegrass, blues, and rockabilly. But no matter where they take it, "they have the rare ability to inhabit any branch of Roots music and still sound unmistakably like Magnolia Mountain." (Brian Baker, CityBeat).

The band's musical range is evidenced in past live performances with the likes of Ralph Stanley, Sam Bush, Lydia Loveless, Eilen Jewell, Glossary, Birds of Chicago, Jason & the Scorchers, Chatham County Line, Robert Ellis, The Yawpers, Shivering Timbers, Wussy, The Tillers, and others.

Magnolia Mountain have released four albums (including two double albums) alongside Mark Utley's two solo releases. Mark's projects have been nominated for Cincinnati Entertainment Awards every year from 2008 to 2016 (including four nominations in 2010: Artist of the Year, Album of the Year [for Redbird Green], Best Folk/Americana act, and Best Singer/Songwriter [Mark Utley]), in addition to performing at the 2009 CEA awards ceremony. Mark was also nominated for Singer/Songwriter in 2013 and 2014 and performed at the 2013 CEA awards ceremony.
