The Tillers bring distinctive folk music style to new LP, tour (2018)

The Tillers have been thumping their own distinctive sound of string band style folk music for a decade, riding it all over the country and across the sea. Four studio albums and one live record have won them praise as modern folk storytellers of the national soundscape.
Mid-2017, The Tillers holed up at Candyland Recording Studio in Dayton, Kentucky with producer Mike Montgomery (Jeremy Pinnell, The Breeders) and tracked ten new songs, live to two-inch tape. The recordings showcase the diversity of their writing and musicianship, from hard-tackle thump to tender graceful melody – lightening-fast banjo to intricate guitar flat picking, plaintive fiddle, deep anchoring bass and clear tenor harmonies.
Fueled by life, family, history, travel and politics, the new self-titled LP is the band’s most engaging record to date.

The Tillers will be released worldwide on Vinyl, CD and Digital Platforms March 23 via SofaBurn. Click here to pre-order the vinyl. And click here to pre-order the CD.
