Pressing Strings


New Record “Settle In” Available now on Bandcamp

Newest Single “Always Around”

“I’m a system made of many things, I’m the sum of a distant grand explosion”


“The Naptown natives keep it real, combining robust rhythms and bluesy songwriting that’s folksy and heartfelt yet funky and feel-good. Toeing the line between hometown darlings and rising stars, these boys-next-door exude the laid-back authenticity you might expect to come out of Maryland.  “  -Lydia  Woolever   Baltimore Magazine 


“They were a pleasant surprise and received a fantastic reaction from the crowd. I didn’t know a lot about them, but after the first few songs I found myself getting sucked into their soulful style and pressing “Follow” on Spotify. Sokel is an incredible guitarist with a smooth voice and Welker and Bartlett blend in perfectly. Their 40 minute did not disappoint as it captivated the crowd” Lou Raimondi IMPRINT  ENTERTAINMENT


“[Band frontman] Jordan Sokel’s voice is insanely unique and compelling. One day, the world is going to wake up and wonder why it’s taken too long for Pressing Strings to receive the national recognition they so richly deserve.” -Bob Waugh, Program Director WRNR
