Details of Chris Thile and the Ticket Luck value
Chris Thile is a popular musician from The United States. He is mostly known as a great mandolinist and also as the vocalist for the progressive acoustic trio, Nickel Creek. He currently leads the band Punch Brothers whose most recent album Punch is making waves all around.
Born in 1981 on Oceanside, California, Thile has started showing interest in music at a surprisingly small age. Indeed, one of his earliest musical memories are listening to Stan Getz's music before he even turned one year old.
His other favorite was John Moore's band Bluegrass whom he used to listen while out to That Pizza Place with his family while he was only two years old.
He began playing mandolin at the age of five with occasional lessons from John Moore. He then joined a band called Nickel Creek at the age of eight.
This band was formed by his family and the Watkins family. The band performed at many California bluegrass festivals. This was the time when Thile gained desired experience of musical performances.
Although, he had to be home-schooled because of his musical commitments, yet he excelled in his art and won the prestigious national mandolin championship in 1993 at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.
In order to launch himself as a solo artist, Thile made a demo tape and sent it to the Sugar Hill and Rounder record labels. Both the labels showed interest in releasing his album but Thile opted for with Sugar Hill. His first solo album was released the very next year.
It was titled Leading Off and featured mostly original compositions. He continued with Nickel Creek as well and moved to Kentucky in 1995 as his father accepted a position at Murray State University as a musical instrument technician. Thile also studied there for a few semesters with a major in music.
The year 1997 saw the star-material Chris with two releases including his solo Stealing Second and Nickel Creek?s Here to There.
Thile?s 2001 album, ?Not All Who Wander Are Lost? featured guest appearances from well-known instrumentalists Stuart Duncan, Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer, Jerry Douglas, and Bryan Sutton. He then teamed up with mandolinist Mike Marshall in 2003 for the duet album ?Into the Cauldron?.
This was a lauded effort by Thile while his 2004 chart-buster album ?Deceiver? proved his musical genesis where he wrote, composed, sang, and played every part.
Thile bid goodbye to Nickel Creek in August 2006 and pursued his carrier as a solo artist with many new projects. He formed a band by the name of How to Grow a Band in 2006.
The band later changed its name to Punch Brothers as they are now known. Band?s first tilled ?Punch? was released on February 26, 2008 on Nonesuch Records while Thile released his fifth album ?How to Grow a Woman from the Ground? is recorded under this band.
Now when Chris Thile is basking on the glory of success of her solo acts and her band, he promises more musical treats to his fans. The biggest one is of course his year-long tour that is something not to be missed.
He will also release a collaborative album with bassist Edgar Meyer and also plans to release a collaborative album with Hilary Hahn. Watch out for him as he is enthralling the audience in your city with his exciting live act.
