Ana Lee here with my DJ pick of the week. A couple of months ago I talked to I’m With Her at Grimey’s when we broadcasted their in-store performance celebrating their debut album See You Around, and I was blown away! I’ve chosen their song “I-89” as my pick today.
2018 is shaping up to be a highly successful year for I’m With Her, the band of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan. They released their debut album, See You Around (Rounder Records), in February. Co-produced by Ethan Johns and recorded in Box, England, See You Around has garnered praise from press around country. Since their formation at an impromptu show in 2014 at the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, Colorado, I’m With Her has formed a special, family-like chemistry, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies, as the New York Times describes, “… that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel.” The multi-Grammy-Award-winners have individually released nine solo efforts, co-founded two seminal bands (Nickel Creek and Crooked Still), and contributed to critically acclaimed albums from a host of esteemed artists. Listen to “I-89” below and let us know what you think!
