We have posted recently about the upcoming solo project from Nickel Creek mandolinist/vocalist Chris Thile. The CD is entitled, How To Grow A Woman From The Ground, and will be released September 12 on Sugar Hill Records. Chris assembled a band of young superpickers, and recorded the music live (in studio) using only two microphones – the old time way.
Chris is running an interesting contest on his MySpace page, which requires that visitors decode clues to the actual identities of the people Chris references in the Influences section of his MySpace profile. Whoever correctly identifies the most names will receive an autographed copy of the new CD upon its release, and be listed in his Top 8 friends, with links to their MySpace page. The next 7 runner-up entries will also be listed among Chris’ Top 8.
Details on the contest can be found in Chris’ MySpace Blog, and entries are limited to folks with a MySpace account.
