Punch Brothers, Brown, The Lone Bellow serve up new sounds

Tuesday, January 27, 2015 – Punch Brothers utilized a top of the line producer for their new disc. Nearly a decade since T. Graham Brown's last release, he's out with new music. And Brooklyn-based trio The Lone Bellow are out with their second disc.

Punch Brothers worked with producer T Bone Burnett on their latest. The band consists of guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjo player Noam Pikelny, mandolinist and lead singer Chris Thile, and fiddler Gabe Witcher.

Brown co-produced "Forever Changed" with Mark L. Carman. The disc includes 12 guests, including Vince Gill, Leon Russell, Steve Cropper, The Oak Ridge Boys and Jimmy Fortune. The disc garnered Brown his first ever Grammy nomination - in the category of Best Gospel Roots Album. Brown's last release was "The Present" in 2006.

The Lone Bellow scored well with their debut in 2013. Now, they return with "Then Came the Morning," which was produced by The National's Aaron Dessner and contains 13 songs. They recorded the disc in an upstate New York studio.
