Ben Sollee & Kentucky Native
I'm so, so excited to share that I'm joining a band!
Last summer, cellist and songwriter Ben Sollee shot me an email inviting me to chat with him about an idea he had for a stringband. Already being a big fan of his work, I immediately said 'yes.' We hopped on the phone and had a fun and exciting conversation about his thoughts on making a stringband record and tour happen.
Since that convo, the band spent a week in a cabin in the Bernheim research forest in Kentucky to record a badass record. We've been honing the live show vibe by performing here and there over the past couple months and we're getting ready to go on the road this fall!
I'm proud to be a Kentucky Native and I love working with everyone on Ben's team, so I'm looking forward to spending the month of September on the road with these great people.
Here's the band lineup:
Ben Sollee - Cello
Jordan Ellis - Percussion
Julian Pinelli - Fiddle
Alex Browne - Bass
and me on banjo :)
Currently, Ben is taking pre-orders for the record via a Pledge Music campaign. He and the Pledge Music team have worked incredibly hard to bring you some amazing perks for donating to the campaign. I'd love it if you'd go check it out and lend your support.
