Joined by her band Golden Highway and slew of guests like Margo Price, Gillian Welch, and Old Crow Medicine Show, Tuttle pays homage to her familial bluegrass history on “Crooked Tree”. The songs are vibrant and move as quickly as your heart does when you’re doing something you love, but the most compelling quality of the record is how fun it sounds.

Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Molly Tuttle releases her anticipated Nonesuch Records debut, “Crooked Tree”, with her new bluegrass collective Golden Highway. Recorded live at Nashville’s Oceanway Studios, “Crooked Tree” was produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and features collaborations with Sierra Hull, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Billy Strings, Dan Tyminski and Gillian Welch. The album explores Tuttle’s love of bluegrass, which she discovered through her father, a music teacher and multi-instrumentalist, and her grandfather, a banjo player. Across these thirteen tracks, all of which were written / co-written by Tuttle, she honours the bluegrass tradition while also pushing the genre in new directions.
