A band of extraordinary chemistry and exquisite musicianship, folk trio I’m With Her features Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan. Individually, these renowned artists have released several solo efforts and co-founded the influential bands Nickel Creek and Crooked Still. Tough-minded but tender, vulnerable but courageous, this group of string players and vocalists builds ineffable magic from their fine-spun narratives and breathtaking harmonies. For all its sophistication, their music can be praised in the simplest fashion: it is beautiful and true.
The members of I’m With Her met after years of success with separate projects, and have come a long way in a short time. Their first full-length album, See You Around, was co-produced by studio ace Ethan Johns and recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios. Its brilliant lyrics move listeners through the tangle of love, confusion, hope, and hurt that makes up so much of our lives. The New York Timespraised their sound as “sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel.”
