CMT Edge: Sean Watkins Finds Right Time for New Solo Album
Glide Magazine Review of All I Do is Lie

“Strong hooks elevate every song, providing a significant but unobtrusive foundation for Watkins’ thought-provoking lyrics.

Melodically and poetically sound, the latest release from Nickel Creek’s guitarist rivals the genre-blurring trio’s best work.” – Glide Magazine

Preview from Sean Watkins album “All I Do Is Lie”

Sean Watkins’ All I Do Is Lie will be available in CD and digital formats from Roaring Girl Records starting July 1!

During a nine year recording hiatus from his Grammy award winning band Nickel Creek, singer/songwriter/guitarist Sean Watkins released his third solo album Blinders On, teamed up with Switchfoot singer, Jon Foreman, to form the band Fiction Family, as well as co-founded the experimental supergroup Works Progress Administration (WPA). In addition, for the last decade Sean & his sister Sara Watkins (also from Nickel Creek) have hosted a monthly residency at the Hollywood club, Largo, for their popular music show, Watkins Family Hour, which has featured guests such as Fiona Apple, Jackson Browne, Booker T, Grant Lee Phillips, John C. Reily, among many others.

Sean has toured as a side man with Jackson Browne and Lyle Lovett. His session work resume includes playing guitar, mandolin and singing on records by notable artists such as Dolly Parton, Lyle Lovett, Steve Martin/Edie Brickell, the Chieftains, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Hank Williams Jr. and Dan Wilson.

Sean is currently busier than ever. Hot on the heels of Nickel Creek’s recently released acclaimed sixth studio album, A Dotted Line, he’s set to hit the road with the reunited band for a summer-long U.S. tour, (click for dates) and will be releasing his fourth solo album, All I Do Is Lie, on July 1st. These 10 self-penned numbers were recorded in pieces between June 2012 and July 2013 in Los Angeles, Encinitas, Davenport, IA, Ann Arbor, MI and in a few hotel rooms across the Midwest. Joining Sean on this effort are his sister Sara, Gillian Welch and Greg Leisz, among others.
