Kris (Mudbone) Colwell


Sol Records recording artist Mudbone hails from a place in Northeast Arkansas where the swift streams of Ozark Mountain bluegrass meet the blues-filled basins of the mighty Mississippi Delta. Armed with a sound that incorporates many different forms of American roots music, his debut album, Rivers and Roads, Part I (Rivers) was released in January of 2017. It received critical acclaim, charted at #67 on the Americana (AMA) chart and earned him a spot on internationally syndicated songwriter showcases such as iHeart Radio’s Counterpoint: A Musician’s Tale, and the prestigious public television broadcast of Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour. Closely on the heels of Rivers & Roads Pt. 1 is the highly anticipated release of Rivers & Roads, Part II (Roads) with a scheduled international release date in January 2018. His writing reflects his philosophy that the craft is a responsibility rather than an entitlement. This perspective has earned him both the respect and acceptance among songwriting greats such as Dean Dillon, Buddy Cannon, and Rock Killough, as well as a place at the table with current hitmakers such as Rob Hatch, Jon Stone, and Dallas Davidson. Mudbone’s songsmithing is centered around his role as a music historian and highlights the intertwining of African and European music from their early roots as individual and separate art forms, through their progression into the modern common thread that binds together the culture of the American music experience. Mudbone’s Music is flat out powerful. He’ll reach into your soul, conjure your demons, and then release them for you. -Thom Bean Outlaw Magazine (2017)
