This new recording bears the unmistakable stamp of a mature group of artists at the top of their game. The all-original tunes ring with the authority of musicians who have mastered a vast swath of American music styles, yet are still exploring. Bluegrass music forms the grounding for a subtle and kaleidoscopic blend of seasonings which include jazz, rock, classical, and various international flavors, flavors that are not pasted over the music but woven into the sound of each player, expressed as a conversation, sometimes earthy, sometimes highfalutin, always totally present in the moment. Psychograss is a band of musicians who are indelibly written into the history of acoustic music. NOW HEAR THIS is both a signpost and a guidepost.
About the Artist
"These cats invite us along on their most developed musical journey to date. The listener hears familiar elements of the best acoustic music, classical, bluegrass, jazz, world music, swing, Irish, and modern music. It's a wonderful bag. They are having a heck of a good time with this music. We can crank it up and, for just a moment, pretend that we are all virtuosos playing joyous music with the best musicians on the planet." -Danny Barnes
