Cumberland Blue formed in the fall of 2012 when this group of young musicians decided to start something new based on their love for the deep roots of blues/rock music. They wanted to honor their roots with a fresh approach for today’s audiences. Lead by vocal powerhouse Chloe Kohanski they show their old blues souls in every song. Duncan King provides powerful, groove laden percussion along with heart pounding bass from Rocky Block. Grant Smith adds a spicy touch with his unique blues/rock fiddle and mandolin. Hank Compton provides tasteful and searing guitar. Rounding out the band is keyboard prodigy Yates McKendree keeping the ivories dancing! All the musicians in Cumberland Blue are multi instrumentalists with talent and playing experience beyond their ages. This band will surprise you and have you dancing with their fresh blues/rock approach. Cumberland Blue represented Nashville at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN in 2013 and 2014. They are currently recording a CD of original songs.
