Chubby Knuckle Choir Releases "Reveille" April 21 AUSTIN, Texas — Lane Gosney, founder of the lauded Bugle Boy listening room in La Grange, Texas, knew the Chubby Knuckle Choir was something special within minutes of her first encounter. Just watching them in the act of mixing country, bluegrass, rock ’n’ soul and swamp blues into a true Americana stew — cooked on everything from banjo and rub-board to Brazilian and African drums — was a thrill she had to share. The Bugle Boy Foundation chose the Chubby Knuckle Choir for its 2014 Founder’s Choice Talent Trust award, a pay-it-forward financial assistance and mentorship program for up-and-coming recording artists. The band shows its gratitude with Reveille, releasing April 21 with distribution by Smith Music Group. The name, of course, is a nod to the Bugle Boy; the music is a nod to multiple cultural and musical influences coursing through five joyful music-makers.
