Steep Canyon Rangers, who are frequent collaborators of actor and banjoist Steve Martin, have teamed up with Boyz II Men and The Asheville Symphony for a reworking of their original track Be Still Moses.

The track originally appeared on the band’s 2007 breakout album Lovin’ Pretty Women. Take a listen to the new version below:

The song arrives as Steep Canyon Rangers announce that they’ve re-signed with Yep Roc Records.

“It feels like coming home,” says band memeber Graham Sharp of the partnership. “The Yep Roc family was among the first to welcome Steep Canyon Rangers when we were just pups. As we’ve grown, so have they. We’re incredibly excited for the future and all the music it holds.”

It was the idea of Steep Canyon Rangers’ producer Michael Selverne to rework Be Still Moses. Selverne called on his friend legendary conductor and arranger Michael Bearden to help get Boyz II Men on board.

“We always get this chill when we know we are in the right place,” says Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman. “And we got a few chills working on this project.”

Graham Sharp adds, “Sometimes it takes a person outside the band to hear your music in a different light and recognize its potential. I give credit to our producer Michael Selverne and to Michael Bearden for their vision of bringing together two very different musical worlds for a moment that transcends any genre designation. Boyz II Men took the song to a whole new level, and as a songwriter it’s mind-blowing to hear.”

Be Still Moses was produced and arranged by Michael Selverne, Joe Mulvihill and Boyz II Men members Wanya Morris, Nathan Morris and Shawn Stockman. Steep Canyon Rangers will perform the song on their extensive international tour, which includes currently announced dates into Spring 2020.
