Burley Mountain has been playing their own form of country/rock in the Seattle area for several years. Fronted by Brandon Russell, who also plays rhythm guitar and writes most of the songs, it’s easy to hear their influences, ranging from classic country to southern rock, to the Grateful Dead. Andrew Stauffer has been playing bass and adding vocal harmonies since the beginning, but things really began to take off when Marty Ofsowitz joined on lead guitar. With the addition of Scott Jantzen on drums in 2011 the quartet was fully formed.
Look for their upcoming feature-length album “Songs From the Night Before,” available in late 2014, and in the meantime don’t miss the opportunity to catch one of their high-powered live performances.
Opening up for Burley Mountain is Allison Shirk.
Allison Shirk is an all-original country-rock singer songwriter. Her music tells stories of a small town girl with an honest quality that shines through her voice and guitar. Born in Corpus Christi Texas, Allison has a quality that draws you in. She’s a sweetly southern artist with an edge. Smart, beautiful and talented, she is a breath of fresh air. Allison is currently fundraising to record her debut album, Break My Heart, with a kickstarter campaign that launched on July 16th.
