Listen to the new release here.
The song New Beginnings is an oddly-appropriate tune for our times. It paints the picture of an optimist who has survived tough times by realizing that, as sure as the rain falls, the sun will shine again, I see a new beginning ‘round the bend. It’s a slamming bluegrass track that was a ton of fun to put together and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. I’ve spent the bulk of my career, as a musician, producer, and engineer, helping others make albums. It is a real treat to bring everything I’ve learned in service of my own songs, with my own ideas, in my own project – Stephen Mougin.
