Dan Tyminski, the voice of O Brother, Where Art Thou?'s Soggy Bottom Boys and longtime sideman for Alison Krauss has returned with God Fearing Heathen, his the first bluegrass album in 15 years.
Not only is God Fearhing Heathen Dan Tyminski's first bluegrass album in more than a decade, but it is also his first album of self-penned bluegrass songs, and the first time he’s taken the reins as producer. It is a milestone along a journey filled with points of interest. Adding fresh vitality to his modern-traditional sound, complete with masterful musicianship, soulful dynamics and the full-bodied vocal that fans around the world love, the album’s 10 tracks feature boundless acoustic energy.
Tyminski’s deeply personal lyrics explore not just the timeless tenets of bluegrass, but also his views on modern themes like self-reflection, human brotherhood, a life nourished by music, and even PTSD. And with a new version of “Hey Brother,” he brings Swedish DJ Avicii’s mega hit back to its roots, adding an undeniable pristine bluegrass shine.
