Willis, VA — Mountain Fever Records is elated to announce the addition of songwriter, producer, and guitar player Thomm Jutz to the label. The artist’s debut album for the label, Crazy If You Let It, will be released this fall with the title track and first single dropping to radio August 29th.
It’s difficult to speak about Thomm Jutz without coming across as a major name dropper. When you’ve written songs, played guitar, or produced records for so many well-known artists, that’s just the way it is. Nanci Griffith, John Prine, Mac Wiseman, Balsam Range, Marty Stuart, Otis Gibbs: the list continues on. But as the recent Prine-delivered song says, “It ain’t braggin’ if you’ve done it,” and Jutz has certainly done it all quite successfully.
Jutz moved to Nashville just over 15 years ago and immediately began networking and performing, because “music is all I have ever wanted to do and all I have ever done.” Last year, he teamed up with his friend Peter Cooper and Country Music Hall of Famer Mac Wiseman for a musical memoir recounting Wiseman’s life through 10 carefully crafted songs for what has become one of 2017’s most lauded albums, Mac Wiseman – I Sang The Song. Not only has the album been recognized with three nominations by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), but it was also listed among Nashville’s Top Albums of 2017 by USA Today. Did we mention the album was recorded at his Nashville-based studio? Yes, he runs a successful recording studio, as well. It was this album, released by Mountain Fever Records, that first provided the opportunity for Jutz and label owner Mark Hodges to work together.
