    ABOUT ROB & TREY:
    Rob Ickes has been playing bluegrass with his much-decorated band Blue Highway for over twenty years, during which time he has been adjudged Bluegrass Dobro Player Of the year fifteen times.

    Trey Hensley is bursting at the seams with freshness and musical excitement. His resonant baritone voice is rich, expressive, and equally at ease with classic bluegrass, traditional country, and original compositions.

    ...the new album from Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley is a wonderful piece of work. And my songwriting side is truly overwhelmed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Merle Haggard
    Its right in my wheel houselove it!  Bill Cody, WSM Radio
    This is just damn good playing. Bluegrass Situation
    Ickes and Hensleys debut collaboration, Before The Sun Goes Down, seamlessly blends contemporary bluegrass and the spare studio stylings of classic 60s and 70s country music. Hensleys voice is a throwback to the great country singer icons of the genres first golden era, at one moment evoking an early George Jones or Merle Haggard and at another, Conway Twitty or Hank Snow. Dobro master and 2015 GRAMMY nominated Rob Ickes is the perfect musical foil to Hensleys prodigious talent. His Dobro complements Hensleys vocal lines with both finesse and jaw-dropping fire, reminding audiences that he is one of the best to ever play the instrument.




    ABOUT ANNA TIVEL:
    Portland songwriter Anna Tivel is a favorite over at Hearth. Shes a deft, clever songwriter with a knack for observing the small, subtle beauties of our lives.  Kithfolk
    Raw yet superbly composed and executed, as well as intelligent and personal and deeply expressive in their experience, observation and storytelling, the fifteen tracks on Before Machines dont just serve as an absorbing and utterly worthwhile listen but as indisputable evidence that the folk scene is in good hands with both its longtime artists and newcomers alike.  No Depression
    To be sure, these are organic songs that freely reveal the poetry of the mind, heart and soul, the sharp imagery of the world translated into sound, and both the simple and complex things represented sentimentally and at length.  Examiner
    Anna Tivels voice is haunting, exhibiting the timbre of a precocious child, whispering to a teddy bear underneath the covers.  The Bluegrass Situation
    Anna Tivel brings a raft of beautiful songs with brine-soaked images of Pacific Northwest tidepools, oceans, and the birds that wheel above them in the gray skies.  Devon Leger, No Depression
    Annas strength is that of a lyricist. Her songs are filled with lines that intrigue and haunt.  David Steinberg
