Eric Uglum Officially On Board For Robertson Project

Eric Uglum

Eric Uglum, owner and operator of New Wine Sound Studio & Mastering Lab in Southern California, has officially joined the team responsible for the southern gospel release from Timothy Michael Robertson. Eric (who’s solo album on Backcountry Records, Shenandoah Wind, was selected by Bluegrass Now magazine as the best album of 2005, and the song “Shenandoah Wind,” with Alison Krauss, was on the Bluegrass Unlimited chart for much of the year) will take lead on final mixing and mastering.

Eric is one of the most tasteful players in bluegrass and acoustic music. His tone, timing, and taste, have been a major part of every band he’s played in including Weary Hearts in the 1980s with Ron Block, Butch Baldassari and Mike Bub; Copperline; and for many years with Lost Highway. Eric has been featured in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine and Bluegrass Now Magazine as well as many television and radio interviews. Eric has also worked with many of the best known names in acoustic music including Ralph Stanley, Alison Krauss, Ron Block, Sean & Sara Watkins, Tim O’Brien, Dan Tyminski, Adam Steffy, Rob Ickes, Stuart Duncan and Jerry Douglas.

“It was important to me to find someone locally who also had a great feel for Southern Gospel,” said Robertson about the hiring of Eric. “He seems like a great fit for what we are doing on this record.”

Robertson is currently finishing tracking on the album and hopes to have it released this summer.
