New Music From Chris Thile & Michael Daves

Posted on May 5, 2011

This week we have new music for all of you Bluegrass aficionados. We are digitally servicing Sleep with One Eye Open, the debut album from mandolin-virtuoso Chris Thile and guitar maven Michael Daves. The album was recorded straight to tape at Jack White’s Third Man studio in Nashville, TN and it includes a collection of 16 traditional bluegrass tunes by legends like The Monroe Brothers and Jimmy Martin. The songs on Sleep with One Eye Openare so well-known to Daves and Thile , who were both brought up hearing and playing folk and bluegrass standards and who met each other at a bluegrass jam in Manhattan in 2005. The Washington Post says Chris Thile “may well be the most virtuosic American ever to play the mandolin,” and The New York Times says Michael Daves is “a leading light of the New York bluegrass scene.” Nonesuch is releasing the album on May 10, 2011 but you can get a digital copy today, right here, right now!
