Pressing Strings is an American musical trio based out of Maryland’s capital city Annapolis . The music has elements of Folk, Rock, Soul, Blues but is not defined by any of these genres.
It is the ongoing project of lead singer/songwriter Jordan Sokel, who formed the band in 2007 and wrote around a changing cast of musicians until he landed firmly with bassist Nick Welker and drummer Brandon Bartlett. As a trio the band continues to develop a sound that is uniquely theirs, yet vaguely familiar of many classic musical acts spanning decades and styles from the 60’s to present day. It is organic, and groovy, with a strong sense of beauty and lyricism that carries the music.
