Duo Steel Blossoms have signed with Nashville-based bluegrass/Americana label Billy Jam Records.

The duo’s first album on Billy Jam Records is set for release April 26.

“I could not be more excited about having Steel Blossoms as the first act signed to this label,” Billy Jam Creative and A&R Director Jerry Salley says. “These girls have an unparalleled gift for crafting clever, insightful songs, and for making a personal connection with their fans.”
