New roots string band Twisted Pine draws audiences across the UK and the US with their lush harmonies and daring, forthright, and charismatic songwriting. Of bluegrass origin, this quartet has developed its own unique style with layered sound that echoes Indie pop. Their voices blend into unexpected harmonies and grooves together in instrumental interplay. Both heart-rending and heart-racing, their music is full of passion and intelligence. Praised by NPR for an “upbeat, poppy vibe; energetic, driving rhythms; and virtuosic solos,” Twisted Pine is exploring a sound they call Americana funk.
