Life has been a little hectic...in a good way.
It's just a few days until Brittany, Jordan and I go into the studio with the legendary Dave Sinko to make our record. Yesterday we got some beautiful pictures taken by Michael George (he posted this little video to his Instagram) for the album cover, which we find very exciting. Here's a youtube video of Jordan's tune, "Grandpa's Cheesebarn." See my concert page for upcoming trio shows, including a live webcast from the studio on January 27th on ConcertWindow.com.
Since I last wrote, Punch Brothers have done some teaching at Oberlin College and Conservatory, played the last three nights of the year at Bowery Ballroom in NYC, and we've had some writing sessions--we're very excited about the next Punch Brothers album. We played a concert of music from the film "Inside Llewyn Davis" (we're featured on the soundtrack). The concert was made into a documentary entitled "Another Day, Another Time" and has been playing on Showtime.
Jeremy Kittel and I co-wrote a duo for violin and bass that we premiered at GardenMusic a couple weeks ago in Miami, FL. Turns out Miami's a pretty great place to escape to in January. For those of you in Miami, check out GardenMusic 2015. I'm sure Jeremy and I will be playing the piece again.
More to come...
