Tower is already making sure fans can get a hold of Billy String's most recent studio album Home, and Billy is making sure that fans have plenty of places to follow and interact with him in lieu of a formal tour. You'll find him on IG Livestream takeovers, on Facebook, and now, you'll also find he and his friends on a regular podcast series.
It drops today, May 25th, 2020, with three episodes in the can and available for listening. Billy is hosting "On the Line with Billy Strings" where he dials in with friends from music and from other fields in a conversational way.
The first three episodes feature Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, Larry Keel, and Sam Bush.
The podcast promises guests who will be "musicians and actors, tattooists and mechanics, to music industry insiders and even his mom", all talking in a very unscripted way. The bluegrass guitarist decided to launch the series after a few phone calls recently that seemed worth sharing.
Billy Strings is no stranger to critical acclaim, with attention from Billboard and Rolling Stone Country, but his live shows are particularly outstanding, and with everyone grounded for the time being, now fans have a new way to follow his work and his life.
If you're new to Billy's work, come for the bluegrass and stay for his cross-genre approach which melds elements of punk, country, rock, and psychedelic tradition.
On the Line with Billy Strings is available today right here.
