“Let it be known: Chris Thile is amazing… A graceful and soulful singer, relaxed raconteur, dazzling virtuoso, gifted composer and all-around charmer.” The Washington Post

Multiple Grammy Award-winner and MacArthur Fellow Chris Thile is a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist who transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres. With a broad outlook that encompasses classical, rock, jazz, bluegrass and just about everything else, the Southern California native is a member of Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek and now hosts the acclaimed radio program Live From Here. Through his wide-ranging output and collaborations with the who’s who of musicians including Edgar Meyer and Yo-Yo Ma, Thile is creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike.
