Wyatt Rice of the Tony Rice Unit mentions, “I couldn’t be more proud of how Jason and Company are carrying on the torch of New Acoustic, Dawg, and SpaceGrass music.”

“As one of the progenitors of ’New Acoustic Music’ back in the 1970s I must say that I am overwhelmed by the evolution of the form and its continued excellence. This band ’The New Acoustic Collective’ is one of the most innovative to appear so far. These guys totally cook and their composing and arranging skills are awesome.” – Richard Greene

David Grisman Quintet member Darol Anger says, “These young West Coast musicians are carrying the torch high for Acoustic String Music, and I expect great things from them.”

“It’s gratifying to know that the art (and future) of New Acoustic music is in such capable hands!”

Mike Mullins
Acoustic Disc Recording Artist

“I’m very happy to hear The New Acoustic Collective keeping the spirit of creative acoustic string band music alive.”- John Reischman

“The folks in the New Music Collective are the real deal, as is the movement to evolve acoustic music…”

Rusty Holloway

And fellow David Grisman Quintet member Mike Marshall adds, “These young cats are burning up some New Acoustic Music! Thanks guys.”

This special ensemble works to bring all styles of music to bear, blending bluegrass/traditional music idioms, jazz, flamenco, classical, and beyond. The collective takes influence from every corner of the music world including the inventors of the New Acoustic Music genre, The David Grisman Quintet and The Tony Rice Unit.
