Bottom Dollar String Band has been a growing bluegrass powerhouse in Austin since their formation in the Texas Hill Country in 2011. Hunter Hollingsworth (mandolin/lead vocals) and Josh Moore (banjo/vocals) are the founding members with Devon Canady (guitar/vocals) joining a year later after a seemingly harmless garage jam. Since then they have explored a sound that borrows from the high-lonesome harmonies and blazing fiddle tunes of bluegrass and blends it with genre-bending medleys, sing-along pop covers, and their own rep of quotable original songs.
Labels aside, Bottom Dollar strives to strip music down to its roots and express the human experience with themes of Americana folklore. The band is beginning their reach out-of-state and has entered into the Telluride and RockyGrass band competitions this summer. They have also gotten to share the stage with such notable acts as the Duhks, Barefoot Movement, Town Mountain, and White Denim. With the departure of John Rogers (fiddle) and Georgia Parker (bass) the band is preparing material for a new album release in early 2016 and they plan to tour to NM, CO, SC, NC, KY, & TN in 2015.
