Mark Utley - Four Chords and a Lie

Mark Utley is the songwriter and male voice behind Magnolia Mountain, one of the midwest’s most acclaimed and prolific Americana/Roots Rock bands, with four full-band albums and multiple regional Band-Album-Songwriter of the Year nominations to his credit.

“Four Chords and a Lie” is Utley’s solo debut, a 50/50 mix of five straight-up Honky Tonk Country originals performed with his all-star side project Bulletville and five more stripped-down originals performed solo or duet-style with vocalist Renee Frye.

Soulful, haunting, and pure, “Four Chords and a Lie” takes the listener down a moonlit road from good-time Honky Tonk revelry to melancholy late-night reverie.

“Four Chords and a Lie” is available on vinyl LP, compact disc, and digital download on the This Is American Music label.

"Like a sculptor who has immense respect for the permanence of the stone but also implicitly trusts his chisel and creative vision, Utley shapes the raw material of Americana’s various stylistic permutations into songs that are comfortably familiar yet blazingly original." - Brian Baker, CityBeat

<a href=”http://magmountain.bandcamp.com/album/beloved” data-mce-href=”http://magmountain.bandcamp.com/album/beloved”>Beloved by Magnolia Mountain</a>
Cincinnati, Ohio’s Magnolia Mountain is one of the midwest’s most acclaimed and prolific Americana/Roots Rock bands, with three previous albums and multiple regional Band-Album-Songwriter of the Year nominations to their credit.
“Beloved” is a recorded introduction to the newest edition of Magnolia Mountain, still rootsy but with a Rock/Southern Soul approach based around electric guitars, bass and keyboards, featuring all three MM vocalists (Mark Utley, Renee Frye, and Melissa English) in featured roles. Think of a mix of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Buddy and Julie Miller, and 60s/70s Muscle Shoals southern R&B as a reference for what the “Beloved” album holds in store.
Bluesy, soulful, and muscular, “Beloved” rocks throughout with dark, pulsing rhythms and impassioned vocals over a driving, guitar-and-organ-driven musical bed.  As always, Magnolia Mountain’s signature exquisite, intertwining three-part vocal harmonies are front and center.
“Beloved” is available on vinyl LP, compact disc, and digital download from the This Is American Music label.
