About Billy Strings

Listen | Watch Video

Billy Strings has been hailed as the future of bluegrass, transcending tradition and genre with his high velocity, flat-picking guitar technique and intense, confessional songwriting. HOME, Strings’ remarkable second studio album, is undoubtedly the Michigan-born, Nashville-based artist’s bravest excursion thus far, completely rewiring bluegrass with elements of punk, country, folk rock, and genuine psychedelic exploration to fashion something altogether his own. Strings has infused the aesthetic with his own experiences and inspirations, adopting traditional sonic and lyrical idioms to confront contemporary social truths. With guest appearances from the likes of Jerry Douglas and Molly Tuttle and produced by Glenn Brown (Greensky Bluegrass, Marcus Miller), HOME marks a landmark on Billy Strings’ ongoing creative journey, its fearless songs and freewheeling approach recasting string-based American music in his own inimitable image.

After making an auspicious solo debut with 2016’s self-titled EP, Strings impelled bluegrass towards heretofore-uncharted new terrain on his extraordinary debut album, TURMOIL & TINFOIL. Released via his own Apostol Recording Company, the markedly powerful collection rocketed Strings to the forefront of contemporary Americana, debuting at #3 on Billboard’s “Top Bluegrass Albums” chart whilst earning critical applause equivalent to its popular success.

HOME now sees Strings’ commitment to anything-goes musical freedom matched by his increasingly potent lyrical ambitions, penning stark, confessional songs that serve to chronicle the current state of the nation as he sees it. Songs like “Enough To Leave” and “Away From The Mire” reveal a songwriter uniquely capable of coloring in such dark matters as addiction, gunviolence, mass incarceration, the battle against inequality, and the suicide epidemic with resonant imagery and heartfelt personal understanding.

Strings – who made his Grand Ole Opry debut in March 2019 following collaborations with such like-minded icons as David Grisman, Del McCoury, Bryan Sutton, and Greensky Bluegrass – has proven an unstoppable road warrior, traveling America in a black Sprinter van to play over 200 completely unique gigs each year. Alongside his crack band – including banjo player Billy Failing, bassist Royal Masat, and mandolin player Jarrod Walker – Strings dives headlong into extended, expansive jams, seamlessly creating whole new worlds with an unstoppable charm, kinetic energy, and a profound connection with the audience.

With its sonic flair, dazzling technique, and forward-thinking enthusiasm, HOME is a strikingly assured manifestation of an increasingly matchless musical vision. Billy Strings is utterly unto himself, a once-in-a-lifetime guitarist, singer, and songwriter whose ingenuity, versatility, and sheer sense of commitment affirm his spot as one of the most visionary and idiosyncratic artists in all of contemporary American music.

“It’s hard for me to fathom because it’s literally been my dream since I was a child,” says Billy Strings. “I got this little kindergarten book that I made when I was like four or five years old and one of the pages in there is like, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ I drew a picture of a dude with a banjo and said, I want to be a bluegrass player. This is what I’ve always wanted to do. I feel like this is what I was always meant to do. This is what I was put here to do and somehow I ended up being able to do it. I’m the luckiest guy ever.”
