ANOTHER GIG IN THE BAG
A collection of new songs by Hitch & the Giddyup
Moving skillfully between original bluegrass, soulful Americana, and honky tonk country, Hitch & the Giddyup trade in a variety of musical wares. Their harmonious singing, hot picking, and especially deft song craft make them a unique presence in the folk music sphere. The group took shape in 2014 as a collective of several well-known Connecticut acoustic bands, and found that they shared an uncommon chemistry and a mutual interest in writing and performing original American music.

We began working on this record in February, several weeks before the pandemic hit. Fortunately we had completed group tracking of 11 new songs by that point. Over the next several months, the record became a quarantine project for the band, with each of us completing overdubs, edits and mixes at home studios or during socially distant recording sessions. Honestly, this album is what got us through the lockdown without losing our minds.
We are proud of these songs and think they show us reaching a new plateau both in songwriting and production. We hope you enjoy them very much.
