Acclaimed bluegrass guitarist Billy Strings invites his fans to listen in on his conversations.
On The Line with Billy Strings is a “fly on the wall” invitation to chats between Billy and his friends. From musicians and actors, tattooists and mechanics, to music industry insiders and even his mom. OTL w/ BS will feature myriad guests talking about any-and-everything that comes up.
Billy was inspired to create OTS w/BS after a series of phone calls he had one recent Sunday afternoon. No big-budget productions here – just a man, his phone, and the numbers stored within.
Billy Strings released his second full-length studio album HOME in September of 2019 via Rounder Records.
Billboard called Strings “foot stomping” while Rolling Stone Country praised Strings as “one of string music’s most dynamic young stars.”
But it’s the live show experience that has been the secret sauce for Billy Strings and his band.
As Pollstar noted in a recent feature, “In 2020, Strings has doubled, tripled or even quadrupled his ticket counts in most markets, while also booking festivals from Bonnaroo to Peach, and continued, “Strings’ out-of-this-world chops have made him a live draw, as have his marathon shows, which typically follow the two-set jam band mold and channel his eclectic musical interests.”
Strings’ music transcends tradition and genre with his high velocity, flat-picking guitar technique and intense, confessional songwriting, and he is reshaping bluegrass into his own exceptional form. He is completely rewiring the aesthetic with elements of punk, country, folk-rock, and genuine psychedelic exploration to fashion something altogether original and all his own.
