"Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio, who's deep grooves, innovative flatpicking, and sultry-spacy violin moves the listeners head, heart, and feet. It's not your father's acoustic-guitar musical though Stickley's pop showed him his first chords when he was 12 years old. Instead, Stickley's Martin churns out a mixture of bluegrass, Chuck Berry, metal, prog, grunge, and assorted other genres all thoroughly integrated into a personal style," writes Guitar Player Magazine.
Premier Guitar says, "Stickley's trio is not a traditional bluegrass group by any means they are just nimble and ambitious enough to navigate EDM-style breakbeats as effortlessly as the old-timey standard Blackberry Blossom."
"Stickley is a super-resourceful acoustic guitarist who uses the instrument in many surprising ways and whose timing is just flawless. Fiddler Lyndsay Pruett puts deep thought into her flowing solos, plus she adds little flourishes and sudden stops that elevate the music," proclaims Nashville's Music City Roots Craig Havighurst.
