“Sound, energy, and performance. These are the qualities that make or break a live show, and either attract or repulse fans. And with that, Cumberland Blue brought down the house. The six multi-talented teens, lead by 21 year old vocalist Chloe Kohanski, know how to work a crowd. Kohanski’s, soulful voice with the band’s impressive instrumentals combine for a spirited show that is mature beyond their years. It isn’t uncommon for a young band to perform a disappearing act, but Cumberland Blue won’t vanish any time soon. If anything, they’re just getting started. According to their interview with ReverbNation, the band formed for a local blues competition and has been together ever since; their music is grounded in blues, but with an edge that keeps it distinctively on the outside of any one category. They collectively wrote all 6 songs on their EP, released last summer.”

“To simply say that the Cumberland Blue Band is a great young blues band is a bit of a disservice. They are a GREAT BLUES BAND period. The fact that they are young only serves as a promise of many years of great music to come. Steeped in the legendary music of the past, Cumberland Blue moves the blues into the next millennium boldly and more importantly with integrity. Their music is BLUES LIGHTNING for the next generation. Do yourself a favor and see Cumberland Blue Band. The future of the blues is in good hands.

“My wife and I love to attend small town festivals. Over the weekend, we took in the Wartrace Music Festival in Wartrace, Tennessee and were pleasantly surprised with the first act on the bill. The band Cumberland Blue attend middle and high schools throughout Middle Tennessee but play like veterans!! Here are a few cell phone shots and a video of them I found on YouTube. Keep the blues alive, guys and great job!!! ”
