Sean Watkins
What To Fear
(Family Hour)

As 1/3 of Nickel Creek, 1/2 of Fiction Family and having racked up over two and a half decades playing music now, Sean Watkins is joined by members of Soul Coughing and Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers on this solo album where the stark lyrics are met with pop friendly melody. Watkins has a penchant for bluegrass, folk and gospel, and his Americana feelings are complemented by universal hooks and occasionally his sibling on fiddle. Rural pop-folk that provides an interesting contrast between sullen and bright, although this album may not gain the attention of anything Nickel Creek has done, it really should as it’s his best work to date.
