PRLog - May 22, 2014 - ROANOKE, Va. -- Poor Mountain Records is excited to announce the signing of acoustic duo Rich and Andy. The Roanoke, Virginia based act got their start as many small groups do by playing music for fun. Rich and Andy began playing together as a duo around the campfire on family camping trips. It was during one impromptu session when a campground owner heard them and asked if they would like to play for free camping. After realizing how much fun they were having playing in front of a live audience, the two decided to see where a music career would take them. Seven years later they are still having fun making clean and fun music. In 2012 the duo decided to try their hand at writing their own music. The response to their heartfelt original numbers was overwhelming. It was that passion for making real music that brought Rich and Andy to Poor Mountain Records. Poor Mountain Records is a haven for independent artists who desire to expand the reach of their music while maintaing their own identity.
Rich and Andy add, “We are very excited to have the opportunity that Poor Mountain Records has presented to us. Ever since we started playing music together we have strived for a unique and fun sound in our music and lyrics in our songs that people can relate to. We don’t write about anything that isn't real or personal to us and we try to bring together the feeling of family, friendship, and good times into our music.” Andy adds, “It has been a dream of mine since I was a child to be able to write songs, sing them and eventually have them recorded”.
Rich and Andy look forward to the open atmosphere and free flowing creativity that Poor Mountain Records affords emerging independent artists. “We are very proud that PMR has given us a chance to share our music with a much larger audience and we look forward to the years ahead. Our first album will be called ‘Good Tunes and Good Times’ and we hope everyone who listens to it will be able to just step away from the real world for a moment and have a little fun”.
Rich and Andy’s first release on Poor Mountain Records is expected later this year. The project will feature their original compositions, and their unique sounds that audiences have come to love. Look for their new music to hit retail outlets and radio soon! For more information on Rich and Andy visit www.richandandy.com.
