It began with a passion and penchant for strong bluegrass vocalist and precision instrumentalists, as well as an appreciation for not only the traditional sound of bluegrass but its more modern day musical cousins of progressive bluegrass and Americana. Mark Hodges started developing a solid musical roster back in 2008 under the name Mountain Fever Records and has developed one of the most sought after sounds in roots music today.
A magical recording studio hidden in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Floyd, VA, and two successful record labels and a publishing company make up the appropriately named Mountain Fever Music Group. In 2014 Mark began the “Americana” label branch to include the music that goes beyond the boundaries of bluegrass and the Mountain Fever Records label. Travianna Records formed and expanded the focus to a broader spectrum of deserving musicians’ talents. Now in 2019, Mountain Fever Music Group grows again, adding a new gospel label, Morning Glory Music to the family.
“It has truly been a privilege to bring all of this music to fans all over the world,” Hodges says. “It still gets me excited every time I hear something new and innovative. I’m first and foremost a fan of the music. If you can’t be crazy about your work and remain a fan of what got you excited in the first place, then what’s the point right?”
