BOTTOMLANDS was released in 1998 on BEAR COUNTRY RECORDS. SHADY MIX found its bluegrass beginnings in 1989 on the front porch of an old 8x40 trailer in Southern Illinois, not far from the Mississippi River. Now, twelve years, two continents, and four albums later, the stylistic shift is complete. Founding members Wil Maring and Mark Stoffel have combined the impressive talents of German Shady Mix members Wolfgang Göhringer (acoustic and electric guitars), Willie Jones (vocals, acoustic bass), and Uli Jenne (drums), with Wil's own beautiful voice and songwriting, and Mark's tasty fiddle and mandolin work to create an Americana masterpiece. With a generous helping of traditional country, a dash and a half of bluegrass and the distinctive flavorings of progressive folk, Shady Mix has found the right recipe to satisfy every Americana and roots music fan. The eight original songs and four well-arranged cover songs on BOTTOMLANDS follow a path worn through the heartland of America by the Mississippi River and its tributaries, reflecting the sentiments and lifestyles of the people that live along the shores and on the floodplains. Shady Mix pledges allegiance to its roots with the Louvin Brothers classic, "Cash on the Barrelhead" and bends the heartstrings with beautiful renditions of "Louisiana 1927" and "Satisfied Mind". Willie Jones contributes powerful lead vocals on four cuts. Original tunes like "Down to the Levee", "Mississippi Lullaby", "River Road", and title cut "Bottomlands" touch the heart, stir the memory, and create that ice-tea sippin', front-porch rockin' atmosphere that every listener will enjoy.
