"As country as Country once was, bypassing the focus group-tested formula spoon fed to today’s commercial masses and served straight up. These songs are meant to be heard amidst both neon bar room glow and a barren moonlit road." - Bucket Full of Nails

MARK UTLEY & BULLETVILLE performs straight-up Country music in the classic style. Originally formed as an offshoot of Magnolia Mountain, the band has now come into its own as a powerhouse live and studio outfit. The band features MM's Mark Utley, Renee Frye, Jeff Vanover, and Todd Drake, joined by bassist Ken Kimbrell, world-renowned keyboadist Ricky Nye and award-winng pedal steel guitarist John Lang. Bulletville plays a combination of Mark's original songs augmented by a great selection of classic Country covers by the likes of Waylon Jennings, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Gram Parsons, and more.

The band made its live debut in November 2012, and is now gigging around the greater Cincinnati area. Check the GIGS page for upcoming Bulletville shows, and be sure to "Like" the Bulletville Facebook Page for even more current updates.

Bulletville served as the backing band for Mark Utley's debut solo album, Four Chords and a Lie, released in July 2013. The band has booked studio time at Ultrasuede Studio in November 2014 to record a full-length Bulletville album with The Afghan Whigs' John Curley producing, to be released in early 2015.
