Southern Rail’s performances are high-energy exuberant fun, with riveting harmonies, irrepressible humor and sparkling banjo, mandolin, and guitar solo work. Over the years, Southern Rail's recordings, featuring their prolific songwriting, have graced Bluegrass Unlimited's Top Thirty Singles Chart for a combined total of 32 months, climbing to #11. One of Southern Rail's earlier CD's, a special Bluegrass Gospel compilation entitled Glory Train, was nominated for Best Gospel Recording of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.
The quartet is composed of Jim Muller, guitar and lead vocals, his wife, Sharon Horovitch, acoustic bass and harmony vocals, Rich Stillman, banjo and harmony vocals, and John Tibert, mandolin and harmony vocals.
Press review quotes from Texas, California, Canada, Ireland and elsewhere include: “The best Gospel CD I’ve ever heard”, “One of the most original and exciting groups in bluegrass”, and “The vocal harmonies are exquisite and the musicianship is impeccable.”
