About Nickel Creek
Despite being a true word-of-mouth sensation and blessed by its youth, you won't find the name of Nickel Creek on any of the latest radio airplay charts or award nominations lists. Instead, this progressive blueglass trio, which first started performing together in 1989, is quietly celebrating its 25th anniversary.
You've heard their name. In fact, we're sure of it. That's because Nickel Creek found a while new audience in 1998 with help from Alison Krauss. The group landed a record deal with music label Sugar Hill, and Krauss produced their self-titled debut album released in 2000. Thanks to a 'progressive bluegrass' sound and more than a hint of classical, jazz and rock & roll, fans old and new couldn't get enough of Nickel Creek. By 2002 the album had gone gold, climbed into the country Top 20 and earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Album.
Nickel Creek's sophomore project, "This Side," debuted in the Top 20 of the pop charts and went all the way to No. 2 on the country listings in 2002. It captured the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album the following year, in part thanks to a cover of Pavement's "Spit on a Stranger." The trio took an indefinite hiatus in 2006, however, and has been recording sporadically.
In early 2014, Nickel Creek finally announced they were launching a reunion to celebrate their 25th anniversary. A new album called "A Dotted Line" bowed on Nonesuch on April 1, 2014, and the group supported the record with an extensive tour.
