The band consists of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O'Donovan, who came together on a spur of the moment performance, in the summer of 2014 at Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Individually the three Grammy Award winners have released nine solo albums, co-founded two seminal bands (Crooked Still and Nickel Creek) and contributed to albums from a selection of other artists.
"We all feel immensely fortunate to be in this band together,” says I’m With Her. “As longtime friends and fans of each other’s music, it’s been wonderful to realise that writing and collaborating together fits so seamlessly into our lives. And now, we’re so excited to get to tour and share the work we’ve done as a band with our debut album, See You Around."
The album is made up of 11 original tracks, written by the band in LA and Vermont, and one version of Gillian Welch's 'Hundred Miles'. The multi-talented members take care of large parts of the instrumentation themselves, all playing guitar, Watkins also adds the fiddle and ukulele to the mix, Jarosz contributes the mandolin and banjo, finally, O'Donovan plays the piano and synth.
