Pressing Strings is an soul stirring trio based out of the Maryland’s capitol city of Annapolis. Their sound is a blend of American Roots, Blues, Folk, Rock and Reggae. The music stems from lead singer Jordan Sokel’s bluesy and soulful songwriting and anchored firmly by drummer Brandon Bartlett and bassist Nicholas Welker. As a trio the band has performed and recorded relentlessly, consistently releasing new material. 2016 will see two new EP’s from the band. Five From Three (March 2016), a 5 track EP done mostly live with minimal overdubbing, and Most Of Us (summer 2016) which the band teamed up with producer Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Jose James, Vampire Weekend…) and engineer/producer Neil Dorfsman (Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, Bob Dylan…)
We love everything about music. Listening, creating it, performing, talking about it. But most of all, we love sharing it with as many people on the planet as possible. Over the past 10 years we have shared the stage and room with so many amazing bands and fans. Now we want to create something that gives a full view of Pressing Strings, where we came from and where we are going.
Welcome to FANthology.
This is our life-work: A collection of all our songs and our most creative endeavors consolidated neatly into 10 packages. We present them here in limited form, many signed and numbered.
If you're not a fan now, we hope to make you a fan at our next event or with our next record. And by being a part of this project you will be a huge help in finishing our newest record which we have been working on for the past few months.
We have been working with Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Jose James, Rachel Platten, Vampire Weekend…) and Neil Dorfsman (Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, Bob Dylan...). Between the two of them they have 12 Grammys. Without a doubt, recording and promoting this next album will be the most amazing thing we have done as a band. But we need some help from you beautiful people!
The memories we have from creating this music will only be better if we can share it with you, our fans. And to be clear, we are your fans as well. We want to make sure that you are receiving something meaningful out of helping our band with such a tall order.
This next 12 months will take us on a journey across the country and and into a promotions plan that will cost money and take time.
We are asking our fans to help us on this journey.... to experience the music in a different way.
