Sean Watkins co-founded Nickel Creek when he was just 12 years old, kickstarting a career that’s taken him from the stage of the Grammy Awards to the top of the bluegrass charts. Along the way, he’s become an award-winning guitarist, a singer/songwriter and a member of several different bands, not to mention one of the early pioneers of a genre now known across the world as Americana. Now, after 25 years of being either a band member of sideman, Watkins is throwing his full weight behind a new solo album, All I Do Is Lie.

“It’s a culmination of the past 10 years,” he says of the record. “It was borne out of a drive to step out of supportive roles in bands. I do like backing up other artists, but in the last couple of years, I’ve started owning my own personality as a musician. I’ve had the urge to put my name on something and step out of the supporting role.”

All I Do Is Lie also marks the first time that Watkins has promoted one of his solo albums with a full tour. He’s no stranger to the road, but this specific tour promises to be different. Watkins will be occupying the spotlight himself, acting as a frontman instead of a bandmate or sideman. Years ago, whenever he released one of his own albums, he’d immediately hit the road again with Nickel Creek… a move that turned his solo career into a project. It’s not a side project any longer.

“This feels like starting over, in a way,” he explains. “It’s the beginning of the next phase.”
