About the Band:
Nightflyer, named in honor of Tony Rice’s song and album of the same name, consists of a group of talented
professionals hailing from Southwestern Ohio. Although together for only a few short years, the group has
developed a distinctive sound by combining carefully selected and arranged songs with stellar singing and
playing. Not only do they have two tremendous lead singers in Richard Propps and Ronnie Stewart, who take
turns on soaring tenor, but all five guys sing at least one lead vocal a set and do a standout job. You will hear
everything from a duet to three- and four-part harmony. The show is always captivating with complex dynamics
and -- although everybody wants to claim it, they own it -- DRIVE. Their sound is mostly contemporary with
strong traditional bluegrass roots, a little gospel and a touch of the blues thrown in. Their enthusiasm for
performing is infectious. Once you see them you will be hooked!

About the CD:
“Rail River & Road” is Nightflyer’s second album and much like the first self-titled debut, Nightflyer’s dynamic arrangements and delivery make for a non-stop ride in this full 13 song excursion. It is a compilation of mostly original tunes
mixed with some carefully selected covers all treated with Nightflyer’s distinctive sound. There is something for every
bluegrass fan. From blistering fast and driving (Train, Train) to gospel (Gospel News) to high lonesome (Old River) and
back around to solid grass with a contemporary feel (Seven Devils Ridge) -- and a lot more in between. This collection has
it all yet still manages to create one consistent sound that is undeniably Nightflyer.
