Nickel Creek - Why Should The Fire Die? - Sugarhill

On their new album Why Should The Fire Die? the newgrass trio Nickel Creek continue to grow beyond their bluegrass and folk roots yet demonstrate how those genres have informed the expansion of their musical horizons.

Fire is the third album on the traditional roots Sugarhill label for Chris Thile, Sean Watkins and Sara Watkins. It is the band's most creative and intrepid record yet and on it they dish out organic, roots influenced songs with plenty of eclectic twists and turns. Highlights include a sweet cover of Dylan's "Tomorrow Is A Long Time," "Helena," the edgy "Best Of Luck," and "Jealous Of The Moon," co-written by Gary Louris of The Jayhawks.

Written by Bruce Warren

Release Date: August 9, 2005
