Sean Watkins & The Bee Eaters
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sean Watkins has long been known for his work as one-third of the Grammy Award-winning Nickel Creek and, more recently, for helming, with sister Sara, the itinerant, genre-hopping Watkins Family Hour ensemble. But in the last year he has more assertively  and impressively  taken on the role of solo artist.  What To Fear is a follow-up to 2014s acclaimed All I Do Is Lie, which had been Watkins first solo effort in nearly a decade, ten years that had been jammed with collaborative projects and a herculean amount of touring.  On his own, Watkins displays tremendous warmth and soulfulness as a singer, a refreshing candor and humor as a lyricist, and prodigious skill as an arranger. And he doesnt merely stick with the familiar: On What To Fear, he bolsters an acoustic lineup with a rock rhythm section, bringing drama and drive to these new tracks while keeping intact the emotional intimacy of all the stories he is telling.

As a writer, Watkins deftly juggles the observational and the autobiographical, convincingly taking on the personalities of others  a stalker, a preacher, a cynical newscaster  and then juxtaposing them with a voice that is clearly his own. Watkins singing unites disparate narrative threads; hes disarmingly honest and sympathetic, no matter whom the character he is channeling might be. Similarly, he has managed to take the work of his acoustic collaborators  -the gifted young Northern Californian trio, Bee Eaters  with the robust bass and drums combo of Matt Chamberlain and Mike Elizondo.

The title track starts off in a deceptively simple way, just Watkins plaintive voice and acoustic guitar, before the band kicks in, bolstered by a dreamy, Mellotron-generated string section.  Its ominous, compelling and surprisingly topical.  Watkins could be echoing the words of an evangelist, a sensationalist newscaster, or a fear-mongering political candidate. Watkins quips, I kind of lucked out with that. I started writing before all the campaign stuff was happening. But something like that is always happening.
