Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio, who's deep grooves, innovative flatpicking, and sultry-spacy violin moves the listener's head, heart, and feet. "It's not your father's acoustic-guitar music-Instead, Stickley's Martin
churns out a mixture of bluegrass, Chuck Berry, metal, prog, grunge, and assorted
other genres-all thoroughly integrated into a personal style," writes Guitar Player Magazine. Premier Guitar says, "Stickley's trio... is not a traditional bluegrass group by any
means... they are just nimble and ambitious enough to navigate EDM-style breakbeats as effortlessly as the old timey standard 'Blackberry Blossom.'"
"Stickley is a super-resourceful acoustic guitarist who uses the instrument in many surprising ways and whose timing is just flawless. Fiddler Lyndsay Pruett puts deep
thought into her flowing solos, plus she adds little flourishes and sudden stops that elevate the music," proclaims Nashville's Music City Roots' Craig Havighurst.
Jon Stickley Trio announces a change in lineup beginning in January 2018 with new drummer, Hunter Deacon, who is both classically trained and boasts heavy jazz influences. Hailing from the ever-hip Knoxville, Tennessee, Hunter studied with drummer Keith Brown and received a BM in Studio Music and Jazz from the University of Tennessee. Deacon then went on to complete a six month residency at a jazz club in Hangzhou, China where he performed seven nights a week. Since his return, he's played with Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, toured the country with Sam Lewis, and performs with guitarist Mike Baggetta.
