Andy Hall, dobro and vocalist for the GRAMMY-award winning bluegrass band the Infamous Stringdusters, has released the second single from his forthcoming album A Universe Within. "A Moment Away" is available everywhere music can be streamed, available exclusively via Americana Vibes. A Universe Within is due out September 24, 2021, the follow-up to his last solo effort, 12 Bluegrass Classics for Resophonic Guitar.
A Universe Within takes a turn away from Andy’s traditional bluegrass sound, and moves into the ambient and New Age realm; creating a space to reflect, and to feel things in a more quiet, peaceful way. The album is an offering to lead into a calm, relaxing space.
"I can hear a lot of my influences come through on this song," shared Andy. "A little Planet Caravan by Black Sabbath, a little Pink Floyd Echoes, infused into a sparse dobro melody. I definitely imagine some space travel with this one!"
Part dobro album, and part New Age, A Universe Within combines some of Andy’s favorite sounds and styles into one dreamy musical journey. This is your wake-up-on-Sunday and pick up a cup of coffee vibe, that we’re all looking for.
