The upcoming performances add to yet another landmark year for Strings, whose widely acclaimed new album, Renewal, is out now via Rounder Records (stream/purchase here). Produced by Jonathan Wilson (Conor Oberst, Roger Waters, Father John Misty) and recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios, Renewal solidifies Strings’ position as a singular artist—one who honors the history of the music that inspires him, while continually pushing it forward. With the record’s sixteen tracks, Strings shares a more personal and honest perspective through his songwriting, while incorporating his wide range of influences with elements of bluegrass, classic rock, metal, psychedelic music and more.

In celebration of the new music, Strings recently returned to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to perform his new song, “Red Daisy,” and made his debut on PBS’ “Austin City Limits” as part of the legendary program’s 47th season (watch the full episode here).

Critical acclaim for Renewal

“a premier bluegrass mind for this post-everything era…he has zigged and zagged between the form’s antediluvian traditions and rapid-fire improvisations that hit like hard bop, all within songs with hooks so sharp that he seems poised for crossover stardom.”—The New York Times

“In addition to some dazzling picking from Strings and his bandmates, there’s a heaviness to the chord progressions and lyrics that speaks to his love of metal.”—Rolling Stone

“Strings’ high level of musicianship and lyrical sincerity are the kind that defies the boundaries of time and genre.”—Spin

“Calling Renewal a remarkable work doesn’t even begin to describe its full extent of prowess and sheer ability. In a word, Strings simply soars.”—American Songwriter

“Billy Strings is an unparalleled talent… continue to show the direction bluegrass can go, offering multiple paths full of promise, beauty, and explosive joy”—No Depression

“Billy Strings is, without question, one of the greatest musical talents of our lifetime, regardless of genre.”—Glide

Renewal capitalizes on the confidence and artistic growth those experiences have delivered, with experimental new instrumentation, contemplative lyricism, and trademark picking.”
The Bluegrass Situation

Renewal is Billy Strings’ Sistine Chapel; his grandest work to date that’s sure to cast a wide net of influence over bluegrass music for years to come”—Holler

“he’s truly firing on all cylinders”—Jambands

“Bluegrass man-of-the-moment”—Magnet Magazine

“showcases Strings’ lyrical prowess”—Live For Live Music

“the hottest thing going in Americana and bluegrass right now, both on stage and on record”
Cleveland.com 

“Billy Strings adds mastery of words to his guitar prowess on Renewal”—Local Spins

“Strings is the confident ringleader, singing and playing guitar with bravado and ingenuity”
The Arts Fuse

“an all-killer, no-filler progressive ‘newgrass’ masterpiece that offers instrumental progression alongside deep, self-aware and wittily constructed lyricism that will see him continue to build new audiences for the genre.”—Main Street Nashville

“this album is top-notch from front to back”—Outsider

Reflecting on the record, Strings shares, “I listen to this album now and it’s emotional. I could sit there and tweak it forever, but there’s a point where it’s like building a house of cards. Yeah, I could add an extra tower on top, but it might collapse. I’ve always doubted myself, and I still do, but this album makes me think, ‘Hey, you’re doing all right, kid. You just need to keep going.’” 

In addition to Strings (vocals, guitar, mandolin, piano, synth, guitjo) and Wilson (celesta, percussion, harpsicord), the record features Strings’ band—Billy Failing (banjo, piano, background vocals), Royal Masat (bass, background vocals) and Jarrod Walker (mandolin, guitar, background vocals)—as well as special guest musicians Spencer Cullum (pedal steel), John Mailander (violin) and Grant Millikem (synth).
