Today, fiddle player Jeremy Garrett of the Grammy-nominated Infamous Stringdusters announces a new solo album, The RV Sessions 2, scheduled for release on September 27th, 2016. The follow-up to his second solo release, The RV Sessions, The RV Sessions 2 was recorded and (mostly) written during Jeremy’s time on the road – not with The ‘Dusters but during his downtime in the “home” he shares with his wife – a 40-foot RV. The RV Sessions 2 is a collection of all instrumental songs inspired by the sights and sounds of another year’s worth of travels.
From the opening track “Cobra” – a title that evokes the intensity of Garrett’s on-stage fiddling – to the subtle melodicism of the closing, “So Long,” The RV Sessions 2 offers music that neatly complements both its predecessor and the combination of songs and extended improvisations that characterize The Infamous Stringdusters’ live appearances. It’s a nod to the bluegrass tradition in which Jeremy was raised – a world in which all-instrumental albums were a regular occurrence – but ranges across a broad sonic landscape where rock, jazz, pop and other influences can be glimpsed at every turn. And while he’s best known as a fiddler, The RV Sessions 2 testifies to Jeremy’s increasingly impressive skills on guitar and mandolin, along with a savvy exploration of technology that makes for an even broader tonal palette.
