After Nickel Creek disbanded in 2007, mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile assembled an all-star quintet called Punch Brothers (the name originates from the Tag Twain short story Punch, Brothers, Punch!) with guitarist Chris Eldridge, previously from the Infamous Stringdusters; bassist Greg Garrison, that has used Ron Kilometers and Leftover Salmon; banjo participant Noam Pikelny, who spent some time working with John Cowan and Tony Trischka, and violinist Gabe Witcher, a sought-after program musician and an associate of Jerry Douglas’ music group for any half-dozen years. The brand new group quickly authorized with Nonesuch Information and released a debut recording, Punch, in 2008, that was anchored by Thile’s ambitious 40-minute, four-part collection “The Blind Departing the Blind.” The double-disc (and also a third Dvd and blu-ray concert disk) Antifogmatic, made by Jon Brion, showed up from Nonesuch this year 2010, and was adopted in 2012 by Who’s Sense Young Now?, made by Jacquire Ruler (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse), as well as the Ahoy! EP. After dealing with T-Bone Burnett within the soundtrack for the 2013 Coen Brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis, the Punch Brothers teamed using the maker to record their 4th full-length recording, The Phosphorescent Blues, which made an appearance in January 2015.
