Grammy award-winning artist Sean Watkins began his ascent into the music industry at the tender age of 12 in the group Nickel Creek. Along with his sister Sara and bandmate Chris Thile, they had humble beginnings playing in a pizza parlor every Saturday night in Carlsbad, California. After playing together for a while they were asked to play in a local festival and have been bringing their eclectic mix of folk and bluegrass music to the masses ever since.
After seven years apart, Nickel Creek is back with “A Dotted Line.” As in the early part of their career together, Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins are doing things that no one else is doing while serving an audience that is interested in picking up the Nickel Creek story where it left off.
To embark on a solo career after being part of a successful group for a number of years is a daunting task. Nevertheless, Sara Watkins seems to be making a smooth transition.
Sara Watkins has spent most of her young life on stage making music, but only in the past few years has she stepped up to the mic alone to pour her songs out into the world.
