The sixth full-length studio release for the bluegrass quartet
Featuring "Any Port in a Storm" and "Tightrope of Love"
"Between the fine ensemble playing, the excellent songwriting, and the subtle but superb studio technique, Tightrope is a high-water mark for Chatham County Line, which is no small statement given the strength of their work to date." — AllMusic.com
"The result is an album that’s unfailingly engaging, and, unsurprisingly, wholly exceptional at that." — Blurt
Entering their second decade as an ensemble, Chatham County Line bring a deep reverence for traditional American roots music and timeless bluegrass instrumentation to insightful, poetic original songs that are powerfully contemporary yet rich with the complex resonance of their southern heritage.
During the course of six studio albums and performances around the world, they have pursued a singular style that is entirely their own, yet connects with audiences from all walks.
Chatham County Line are equally capable of classically hard-driving bluegrass and sparse, haunting ballads. The key to their sound lays in the close collaboration of the band's four members: Dave Wilson (guitar), John Teer (mandolin, fiddle), Chandler Hold (banjo), and Greg Readling (bass). This partnership enriches their latest album Tightrope (Yep Roc), which was forged over a year's worth of intensive rehearsals where they put every element under the microscope.
"At the end of the day," explains Wilson, "you want to write songs that have a reason for existing. For Tightrope, there was a lot of scrutinizing. We wanted every song to make the future Greatest Hits."
