Punch Brothers are the quintet of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny, and violinist Gabe Witcher. Their latest album, All Ashore, was released in July 2018 on Nonesuch Records with The Independent calling "All Ashore," "… an album of rich instrumentation and understated beauty that reveals deeper nuances on each and every listen.”
Punch Brothers formed in 2006. Its first Nonesuch record, "Punch," was released in 2008 and combined elements of the band’s many musical interests. In 2009, they began a residency at NYC’s intimate club, The Living Room, trying out new songs and ultimately spawning "Antifogmatic" (2010). In 2012, the band released "Who’s Feeling Young Now?," which Q praised for its “astonishing, envelope-pushing vision.”
