How To Grow A Woman From The Ground is the sound of a brilliant musician stretching out to reach new things - but also returning to the source that originally inspired his amazing talents. In the process, Chris Thile (a member of the GRAMMY-winning acoustic trio Nickel Creek) gathered together some of the hottest young players out there - Chris Eldridge, Greg Garrison, Noam Pikelny, and Gabe Witcher - for a spirited run through tracks new and old. For his latest album, Thile decided to record the project live to two-track tape in order capture the energy of bluegrass as it originally evolved. Little separation. No compression. The communal feel of bluegrass that embodies raw energy and subtle harmonies expressing emotion without artifice. In some ways How To Grow A Woman From The Ground is a point of departure. A reconciliation of origin and experience. A musical exploration refreshed - and begun anew.
