The New Balance was formed in 2012 by Zion Napier and former band member Calib Smith. The two envisioned a band that was fun, exciting, and would provide an energetic bluegrass music show. Band members of The New Balance are Zion Napier, Garret Smith, Kyle Clerkin, Ronnie Deaton, and Matthew Phelps. The band started out as a "band of brothers," and strives to maintain the atmosphere and feel that you get with a traditional family band. The New Balance is proud to be a Truegrass Entertainment recording artist. Zion Napier says “It has been an honor and blessing to get to work with Alicia Wasson and Truegrass Entertainment who have helped us get closer to achieving our dream”. We would also like to thank Melanie Wilson for adding us to her Wilson Pickins Bluegrass Promotions team. Melanie helps the band with bookings and publicity, and does a fantastic job as a band promoter! “She is very professional and has been great to work with,” says Zion Napier. As a unit we would like to thank God and our families for their continued support. Without it, we would not be able to do what we do.
