New Music from David Benedict and Michael Moore

Since the release of his 2014 debut album Into the True Country, produced by Grammy-nominated mandolinist Matt Flinner, David Benedict (mandolin) has now teamed up with Chattanooga guitarist Michael Moore to record a new project. Their instrumental duo album, entitled Each by Side, explores the unique combination of traditional bluegrass, old-time, and Celtic mandolin, in the vein of Sam Bush and Chris Thile, with the fingerstyle jazz guitar sound of Tommy Emmanuel, Andy McKee, and others. The result offers a compelling and entertaining display of the musical possibilities in the mandolin and guitar idiom through a catalog of creative, original music.
