The Fox Hunt released its 10-track, home-recorded original album "Nowhere Bound" in April and, at the time of the interview, were preparing to go to Knoxville, Tenn., for a series of shows this weekend.
Kline and 21-year-old John Miller of Martinsburg share song-writing, vocal and guitar duties. Matt Metz, 25, of Harpers Ferry, plays the mandolin and banjo. Ben Townsend, 24, of Romney, plays fiddle and banjo.
Before forming The Fox Hunt, three of its members - Kline, Metz and Townsend - were in a metal band called The Red Oranges.
Townsend was the one who introduced everyone else to bluegrass, said Kline, who grew up listening to '90s-era Green Day and Nirvana.
