My guest this week on the podcast is Dan Tyminski! Throughout his 30+ year career, Dan Tyminski has left his mark in every corner of modern music. Tyminski’s voice famously accompanies George Clooney’s performance of the Stanley Brother’s Classic song, “I’m A Man of Constant Sorrow,” in the film, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou and his vocal collaboration with Swedish DJ Avicii on the song “Hey, Brother” was a global smash, having been streamed over 1 billion times to date.
Dan has been honored with 14 Grammy Awards, was named Male Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association 4x and was recognized as 2004’s Male Vocalist of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America.
The Dan Tyminski Band will be on tour throughout 2022 and 2023 in support of two forthcoming projects: an EP celebrating Tony Rice’s legacy, and a full-length bluegrass album early in 2023. The Dan Tyminski Band is Gaven Largent (dobro), Maddie Denton (fiddle), Jason Davis (banjo), Grace Davis (bass) and Harry Clark (mandolin).
As always, a HUGE THANK YOU to my sponsors!
