Greensky Bluegrass will add to its deep catalog of recorded music with Stress Dreams, the quintet’s eighth studio offering, due out on January 21st via Thirty TigersStress Dreams will mark the first new studio album for Greensky since All For Money, released in January 2019.

The jamgrass quintet—comprised of Paul Hoffman (mandolin/vocals), Dave Bruzza (guitar/vocals), Anders Beck (dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), and Mike Devol (upright bass/vocals)—is as well-known for its thoughtful, well-crafted songs as for its high-energy live performances.

When touring ceased in 2020 in the face of the global pandemic, the band hunkered down and compiled demos individually, sharing emails and voice notes. In July 2020, they got together for the first time in four months, dedicating rehearsals to the development of the new material.

Once circumstances safely permitted, they recorded what would become Stress Dreams during a session in Guilford, VT and two sessions in Asheville, NC with frequent collaborator “and old friend” Dominic John Davis as producer and “wizard engineer” Glenn Brown mixing.

“Greensky is and always has been very unique in our world,” says Hoffman. “We put our love, energy, and focus into what we appreciate about our music. We come together as a band in a way that’s organic. We take a lot of pride in how we grow and challenge each other too. We’re maturing together. I think we get more Greensky all of the time.”
