Songs From The Road Band is a North Carolina-based supergroup featuring Mark Schimick, Charles Humphrey, Ryan Cavanaugh, Sam Wharton and James Schlender.

Collectively, they have received top accolades in the bluegrass, Americana, and jazz genres. The band’s fourth studio album, "Road To Nowhere," is due out this spring. The band is touring heavily in support of the release.

Humphrey is an IBMA award and Grammy recipient. He has also garnered a spot in the N.C. Music Hall of Fame. Schimick has soared to the top of the progressive and jamgrass scene alongside legends Larry Keel, Vassar Clements and Tony Rice.

Cavanaugh has made his long-awaited return to bluegrass after 10 years of touring the world with jazz great Bill Evans and his Soulgrass project. Cavanaugh has been pegged by Bela Fleck as an acoustic pioneer on the five-string banjo. James Schlender, a two-time National Fiddle Champion, has shared the stage with Chick Corea, Bobby McFerrin and George Benson.
