Pressing Strings is three piece musical force hailing from Annapolis, Maryland-- Since 2014 they have been weaving a tightly crafted sound that has widespread roots touching on a number of genres, making a mark on listeners young and old.
From toe tapping bluesy folk, to funky soul rock, the music is heartfelt and powerful.
Band members Jordan Sokel (lead vocals/guitar), Nick Welker (vocals/bass), and Brandon Bartlett (drums) met through mutual friends among the bustling Annapolis music scene and have consistently written and released music ever since-- 2016's "Most Of Us" EP being the latest. Produced by Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Jose James, Coldplay, Vampire Weekend) and engineered by Neil Dorfsman (Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Mark Knopfler, Paul McCartney), the EP gained national attention and spins from a slew of AAA radio stations for their track "What It Means".
"What it means is a very honest and personal song for me. It's basically about me trying to make sense of what's going on in the world, through all these mediums that we are constantly bombarded with and ultimately wondering if any of it is really important enough to be affected by it negatively" Sokel explains.
