With a name as unique as its sound, Cornmeal continues to forge a path all their own, pushing the boundaries of bluegrass, Americana and folk for a whole new generation of music lovers. Steeped in the tradition of musical acts such as Old and in the Way, John Hartford, and New Grass Revival, Cornmeal has proven to be an influential presence in the world of roots music. They have consistently evolved its sound and stage performance using bluegrass as a springboard for long improvisational work and songs ranging from country, rock and blues to jazz, funk and disco. 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. 2003’s “Tales from Magic Stone Mountain” (Livin’ Live records) garnered much critical attention and became a staple on College and AAA top 10 lists throughout the country. The band’s third album, “Feet First”, is poised to set the country on fire with its dynamic songwriting and solid musicianship. By far their best effort, Feet First is proof positive that Cornmeal’s tenure on the road has brought honesty to their sound and maturity to their songwriting. After six years together and over 160 shows a year, Cornmeal has gained valuable exposure and attracted a faithful following from Colorado to the Carolinas. Started as a side project over six years ago, the band members have watched Cornmeal grow into a Chicago institution.
