Chris Pandolfi talks about the ins and outs of his band, The Infamous Stringdusters, getting record deals, going independent, putting a team together, and more.
One of the highlights of this episode is a discussion about keeping a band (the Infamous Stringdusters has six members) on the same page and working together as as a single unit. Topics include keeping a unified vision for the band, how songwriting is done, and life on the road.
We also talk about the intersection of IMBA (International Bluegrass Music Association), bluegrass music, and jam bands, how to deal with "purists" in your music genre, and the balance of niche and mainstream acceptance.
