      The stage was so poorly lit that I could not see who the performers were. The sound was absolutely terrible. I was so disappointed.

Michael Daves was born in 1977 in the southern empire of Atlanta, Georgia. He grew up playing bluegrass in that grand old tradition of staying up late & singing real loud. As a young, impressionable-type person, he spent his free time at the venerable Freight Room, Atlanta’s answer to the Opry. There he learned at the footlights of the masters: Del McCoury, John Hartford, Norman Blake, and many others, as well as family friends Whit Connah and Barbara Panter. Although he’s since moved north, the humid south remains, lodged in his heart and sinus cavities.

Heralded as “a leading light of the New York bluegrass scene” by the New York Times, Daves has garnered attention for his work with Chris Thile, Steve Martin, Tony Trischka, and others in addition to his solo performances. Since 2006, Daves has maintained a weekly residency on Tuesday nights at The Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan where he continues to draw a devout following, and uses the setting to showcase special guest appearances with a who’s who of bluegrass musicians including Noam Pikelny, Chris Eldridge, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan.

His most recent recording is Sleep With One Eye Open (2011, Nonesuch Records), the debut album from Thile and Daves, which was recorded live to tape over four days at Jack White’s Third Man studio in Nashville. The album is a collection of 16 traditional tunes by bluegrass legends like The Monroe Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and Flatt & Scruggs. The duo makes for "a rip-roaring partnership," says the New York Times. "Bluegrass, in their hands, gets roughed up in the best possible way, with skill and fervor, and a touch of abandon." Sleep With One Eye Open received a 2011 Grammy Nomination for best bluegrass album.
