LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 29, 2018) – Through time comes change. After two years of refining its sound and lineup, Lexington jamgrassers Restless Leg String Band return with “Bigger Than a Feeling,” the long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s self-titled debut, out July 4.

Although “Bigger Than a Feeling” is the band’s sophomore album, it features many firsts. The record is the studio introduction for banjo player Jonathan Bramel, a Louisville transplant who’s long performed with Restless Leg live. It also marks the departure of mandolin player Alex Guagenti, who took an engineering job in Virginia earlier this spring. Bramel now joins Casen Baumgardner on guitar, Ishi Wooton on fiddle and Joe Schlaak on bass to solidify the foursome.

The project also marked Restless Leg’s first trip into Lexington’s Sneak Attack Studios, working alongside producer Jason Groves. The connection was fostered following a recommendation from Wooton, who had recorded in the studio before with punkabilly artist NP Presley.
