    Based in Tualatin, Oregon – the award winning original roots music group Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising continues to stack up awards and accolades while performing their high-energy shows throughout the West.  Awards include guitar player Dennis Nelson being named 2008 Roots Music Association Bluegrass Songwriter of the Year and banjo player Tom Tower winning the ,000 prize in the 2010 City Love Music Contest.  In 2012 their upbeat tune "Am I A Fool For Your Love" won a spot on The Alternate Root Valentine Sampler and their song "Risky Business" was chosen for the Ambassadorship Program through Rock the Cuts (sponsored by Super Cuts).  In 2013 their song "Death Grip" kept them in the Super Cuts Ambassadorship program, and they continue to ride the success of the January 2013 release of their 4th all-original recording into the second quarter of the year.

    Currently touring to promote the release of their all-original 4th CD, this troupe of entertainers continues to spend as many hours as possible sharing their music with the general public.  "Lowground" was released for international radio airplay on January 1, 2013 and in it's 1st week of release became the #1 bluegrass album downloaded for radio airplay and contained all 10 of the top ten singles downloaded for radio airplay in any genre.  It held the #2 spot for the remainder of the month and stayed in the top 25 throughout the month of February. 

    Radio stations world-wide have lined up to interview the group this year, and the songwriting – especially that of member Tim Crosby – has been compared to legends such as Waylon Jennings and Bruce Springsteen.

    "After eight years together we definitely have our own unique sound." states KBPR band leader Kathy Boyd, "We've now reached a spot where we are so comfortable with who we are and what we do that it's allowing us to stretch in new and more complex musical directions."

    "Audience response to all of our music continues to be enthusiastic, which in turn makes us better performers.  It's a huge circle of excitement and love that benefits everyone!"
