A contemporary string band who progressively fuse together elements of folk, classical, Celtic, bluegrass, and jazz, Kittel & Co.
made their introduction in 2018 with the album Whorls.
Led by Brooklyn-based, Michigan-bred violinist and composer, Jeremy Kittel (Turtle Island String Quartet), the band combines the collaborative talents of guitarist Quinn Bachand, mandolinist Josh Pinkham, cellist Nathaniel Smith, and hammered dulcimer player Simon Chrisman, all highly respected and forward-thinking players in their own right. Working with Michigan-based producer Tyler Duncan (Vulfpeck, Theo Katzman), Kittel & Co. released their debut album, Whorls, in 2018. Known for his work as a fiddler, composer, and arranger with acts as varied as Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble and My Morning Jacket, Kittel turned again to his own genre-bending material, turning in an intricate and thrilling set that featured his debut as a vocalist alongside guest singer Sarah Jarosz. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
