Album Notes
While keeping in the tradition of musical acts such as Old and in the Way, John Hartford, and New Grass Revival, Cornmeal has continued to push the boundaries of traditional bluegrass music for more than 6 years. Known for their solid musicianship, rich vocal harmonies and crafty songwriting ability, Cornmeal has proven to be a moving presence in the world of Americana roots music.

With the release of their debut album "In The Kitchen" (2001 Livin' Live records), Cornmeal secured its place as one of the top bands in its genre. On their second effort, "Tales from Magic Stone Mountain" (2003 Livin' Live records), the band pushes its style further with a blend of 15 original songs recorded at the famed Rax Trax studio in Chicago. This self-produced album is proof again that Cornmeal has captured the heart of Americana with an honest, thoughtful and inspiring performance.

Cornmeal currently performs more than 150 shows per year throughout the Midwest and beyond, and has gained valuable exposure and attracted a faithful following from Wisconsin to the Carolinas. While playing high profile venues such as The Vic Theatre, House of Blues, Martyr's and The Abbey Pub in Chicago, The Barrymore and Orpheum Theatres in Madison, and jam-band and bluegrass festivals in the Midwest and the South, the band has shared the stage with such highly acclaimed national acts as THE DAVID GRISMAN QUINTET, JOHN HARTFORD, THE DEL McCOURY BAND, LITTLE FEAT, LEFTOVER SALMON, YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND, DARK STAR ORCHESTRA, moe, and SAM BUSH.

In addition, Cornmeal has employed a vigorous college, AAA and internet radio campaign, including the addition to the Home Grown Music Radio Program, helping to broaden their reach to listeners from coast to coast.

Heavily influenced by American roots and folk music, Cornmeal began as a side project over four years ago only to see it become a true Chicago institution. Performing tirelessly, Cornmeal prides itself on the energy it puts forth each night, creating a powerful, unrivaled live performance experience.

Blue Grass - New Grass
I've been a fan of Cornmeal for several years now and just got this album and LOVE it. The guitar pickin is terrific, the vocals are very good and the variety of songs is really good. Of course the addition of the drums is what sets this Blue Grass band apart from traditional Blue Grass bands, but they are certainly not overpowering at all and really add. If you ever get to hear this band live, the musicians are just great and their fiddler is one of the best in the business. A couple people have changed since this album was cut I think, but this album is just as good as their more recent offering Feet First.


This Chicago band rocks
I have been seeing Cornmeal play for about 3 years in and around Chicago. They are one of the best bluegrass/jambands out there. I just bought their CD and it's way better than I expected. You all should definitely check them out.
