"Typically a unit of mass or weight, a bushel is relative to the standard measurement of a commodity—a bushel of barley may not equal a bushel of oysters. In much the same way, trying to define The Bushels as a band depends on how much weight you assign their influences: bluegrass, country, soul, rock, and jazz. “We get tagged as a bluegrass band due to the instruments,” says mandolin playing singer Mal Jones, “but we’re really a country rock band with a dynamic feel that lets us go into different areas." In 2010, the group released Wood & Steel—a seven-song studio collaboration between Jones, brothers Jim (guitar) and Whitt Algar (double bass), and banjoist Guilds Hollowell. It was the follow-up to their 2009 EP, Blacktree, which includes “Sweet T.” A hard-charging, Appalachian-style number, it’s featured as the theme song for Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka. The band's 3rd studio record comes out in March 2013. No matter how you count it, The Bushels serve up just the right amount to feed any musical palate."
