Jon Stickley Trio's "Maybe Believe"

Jon Stickley Trio's "Maybe Believe"

Jon Stickley Trio recently released their new LP, "Maybe Believe". This album was a blast to record, with Echo Mountain's own Julian Dryer engineering and The Bad Plus' Dave King holding the reins. Check it out below!

The latest record from the Jon Stickley Trio flexes new and strong muscles, utilizing more progressive structures and deeper pockets than ever before. All the while, the group retains its place as a modern-thinking acoustic ensemble with one foot in tradition and the other in a bluegrass-honoring future that allows for the avant garde, punk, and be-bop to mix in freely and tastefully.
— Dave King (Producer/The Bad Plus)
