I would tell myself to take it much more seriously and take it much less seriously also – if that makes any sense. No one is going to do anything for you better than you will do it for yourself, so take seeing ideas through and getting things done more seriously. But also keep it your mind that this is Rock n Roll we’re talking about here – if you aren’t having a good time, how is anyone else supposed to?
Well, we definitely aren’t your granddad’s bluegrass band, that’s for sure. We like to honor the tradition of bluegrass music while at the same time we attempt to create something new, often with a heavy emphasis on improvisation. Every show should be a separate experience from the last. We essentially are trying to write music that we’d like to listen to and dance to ourselves and each one of us comes from a very different background.
Finding new talent is the most rewarding. We get suggestions from our fanbase, and we listen. Tyler Childers and Larkin Po are going to blow everyone away this year. We Had them when: The Lumineers. They have really blown up since 2012, and they were a lot of fun to have.
