We posted last week about the upcoming solo project from Chris Thile, How To Grow A Woman From The Ground, which is really a band project, though solo in the sense of it being recorded and promoted outside of his work with Nickel Creek. We referenced Chris’ MySpace page in that earlier post, and suggested that details about the new CD would first be posted there.
Within the past few days, Chris has posted three tracks from the new project, and says that he will post all of the tracks there, in sequence, two at a time, heading towards the September 12 release date on Sugar Hill.
As we mentioned before, the music was recorded live in the studio, and with a band of young super pickers. A quick listen to the three sample tracks will demonstrate both the virtuosity and adventurous nature of this recording.
