The award-winning Larry Stephenson Band is proud to announce new members, bass player Matt Wright and guitarist Kevin Richardson. They will join Larry Stephenson and Kenny Ingram in celebrating the band’s 25th Anniversary this year and their upcoming new album release, PULL YOUR SAVIOR IN.  The first single is set for release later this month and will include special guests Jimmy Fortune, David Parmley, and Dale Perry.  

Matt Wright’s first show with The Larry Stephenson Band was during this year’s Bill Monroe Memorial Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival in Indiana. Matt is currently a senior at ETSU in the music program and lives in Waynesville, N.C.  Matt said, “I'm very honored to be playing alongside of such legends, and such great people. And I hope to continue musical endeavors with the LSB for years to come.

Kevin Richardson, from Asheboro, N.C., previously toured with Larry for four years. He will rejoin the band beginning August 29 at the Petal Civic Center in Petal, MS. Kevin was part of The Larry Stephenson Band’s 20th Anniversary album on Whysper Dream Music that received the IBMA Recorded Event of the Year Award in 2010, and also part of the band’s latest album, WHAT REALLY MATTERS on Compass Records.  "I am pleased to return to Larry and the group. I have many memories with Larry and look forward to making many more with his great band - and making some good music," said Kevin.
