Appalachian Smoke is a contemporary bluegrass band grounded in the corners of North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. Their independent release, ‘Colder Side of Love,’ received three reviews in Bluegrass Today acknowledging their talented songwriting, melodic arrangements, and smooth vocal harmonies. They bring an “edgy, modern sound” to bluegrass music and “if they stick to this formula, we will be hearing about Appalachian Smoke for a long time.” – Blue Grass Today
