The Infamous Stringdusters rise to new heights on their ninth full-length record Rise Sun. For the album, the GRAMMY® Award-winning quintet-Andy Falco [guitar], Chris Pandolfi [banjo], Andy Hall [dobro], Jeremy Garrett [fiddle], and Travis Book [double bass]-expanded their signature sound by perfecting their seamless fusion of All-American-bluegrass and rock.Once again sail into uncharted territory moored only by their expressive patchwork of All-American bluegrass threaded together with strands of rock, jazz, funk, country, old-time, and more. As they approached this latest body of work, the group's ambition matched their outsized creative curiosity. "Rise Sun was sparked by the feeling of wanting something better for the world-more love, more awareness, and more compassion," says Hall. "It's a message of taking care of each other, our planet, and ourselves. We all shared this feeling as evidenced by the songs we brought to the project. It's the feeling of a rising sun as opposed to a dark night. Sometimes a message of hope is less popular than one of despair, but it's much-needed nevertheless."
