Description

'Laws Of Gravity' represents a return to form for The Infamous Stringdusters, one of the most successful bands to emerge from bluegrass in recent years and one that is known for its incomparably tight yet improvisation-infused live shows. They have won three International Bluegrass Music Association awards, earned a "Best Country Instrumental" GRAMMY nomination in 2011.

'Laws Of Gravity' was recorded in Nashville with Billy Hume (Ludacris, Ying Yang Twins) in the co-producer's chair. Band members Andy Hall (dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), and Travis Book (upright bass) are showcased as writers, singers, and players on an all original set of honest songs with a fresh yet familiar bluegrass/Americana/progressive feel. Andy Falco explains: "This is an important record for us, coming off the Ladies & Gentlemen project. That album exposed us to a lot of new fans." Ladies and Gentlemen featured a different female guest vocalist on each track (including Joss Stone, Lee Ann Womack and Nicki Bluhm) and helped the group reach a broader audience and achieve mainstream critical acclaim.

By contrast, 'Laws Of Gravity' is a quintessential Stringdusters record with all facets of the five members' talents shining. Of the recording process, Falco says, "We really made an effort not to over-analyze and over-arrange the songs. We deliberately went through the tunes and worked on them but kept them natural and raw as possible. This record is the most honest representation of the band we've done."
