An acoustic power trio (and now quartet) that have my ears smiling in a big way.
The level at which these players play will leave your jaw on the floor no doubt, but it is the restraint that they exhibit that makes their music intoxicating. They continuously feed off of one another, challenging one another, but never interfering or stepping on each other’s toes.
Brittany Haas (violin), Paul Kowert (bass), and Jordan Tice (guitar) combined forces a few years back to put out an absolutely stunning album featuring some hot picking, intricate melodies, and just overall virtuosity. Fast forward to 2017 they bring Dominick Leslie on board (mandolin) and change the band name to Hawktail.
