Featured Release This Week From Chris Thile + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Jan 22, 2018

Chris Thile plays mandolin, writes songs, sings, and has made records both on his own and as part of the groups Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers.   As of October, 2016, he has also been the host of a radio program on public radio.  That program is Live From Here - previously known as A Prairie Home Companion.  Although coming out of the bluegrass tradition, Thile is known for being inclusive and progressive in his approach to songwriting and performing.  As part of his Live From Here broadcasts, each time out he features a brand new song that he has written as a kind of comment on his life and times.  Thile's latest album, Thanks For Listening, is a collection of these Songs Of The Week, newly recorded in the studio.
