Exciting bluegrass artist Billy Strings has released a new single “Taking Water” (see clip below) which is lifted off the forthcoming album Home (via Rounder Records).

Strings’ debut album was the magnificent and striking Turmoil and Tinfoil which ranked high in our best albums of 2017. The subject matter was dark, reflecting on troubled times in a small town where boredom leads to bad choices which almost enveloped Strings himself, saved by his deep attachment for music. At the same time, the album provided high-speed picking, the clarity of a new, profound vision and some experimentation. It was bold, a breath of fresh air in the bluegrass tradition.

Home will provide the Michigan-born, Nashville-based artist with another opportunity to re-shape the bluegrass and country folk genres in his own style. It is Strings’ second studio album and is due out on September 27.  Pre order is available now.

All 2019 tour dates have recently been announced including several two-night stops in Atlanta, San Francisco, Portland, Carrboro, Charlottesville, Boston and Brooklyn.  Billy Strings will be appearing at AmericanaFest in Nashville in September and Listening Through The Lens will be doing its absolute darndest to see him perform there! A full list of tour dates is HERE.

    • Thanks Sara! Almost saw him at The Festy in Virginia in 2017 but circumstances conspired against. I see he’s playing at Red Rocks with Greensky Bluegrass – now that’d be a show!
