The Tillers Hand on the Plow CD (Muddy Roots Music Recordings)
**Sneak Peek Video**
"We’ve been working on our fifth album for over a year now, writing all new songs like Shanty Boat, The Road Neverending and I Gotta Move. We spent last winter in the studio with Brian Olive and Mark Van Patten pouring our hearts and souls into these new recordings. This spring we’ve been throwing ideas back and fourth with artist Keith Neltner who has been creating some amazing art for the new project. All this hard work has now come to fruition in the form of one awesome album if we do say so! We’re teaming up and releasing Hand On The Plow with Muddy Roots Recordings. The same folks who bring you Muddy Roots Fest in Tennessee and Muddy Roots Fest Belgium. A great group of ambitious and dedicated characters who we’re real excited to work with!" -The Tillers (http://the-tillers.com/home/)
A few kind words from Col. J.D. Wilkes about the Tillers.
Like a passer-by on a summer drive through the country, I have had the privilege of monitoring the Tillers' own growth throughout the years. Coming in with fresh eyes to each gig, I have enjoyed the fruits of the rapid advancement of their musical garden of delights. Don't get me wrong, Mike Oberst and Sean Geil's talent were present from the beginning. But with the addition of Aaron Geil's steady hand on the upright bass and the cultivation brought about by endless (and no doubt thankless) tours and pub dates, these "brothers in melody" were suddenly tapping into progressively deeper and darker tillage. Put plainly: they just kept getting better and better.
