Michigan-based Full Cord releases a third single Reelin’ In The Years from their upcoming album Cambium.
Full Cord is the 2022 IBMA Momentum Band Award winner and 2022 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition winner.
I heard Full Cord perform Reelin’ In The Years a couple of times and it knocked me out. They have a firm grasp of the bluegrassy version, but also fully commit to the funky rhythm of the original Steely Dan recording. When we started planning for the album, I insisted that this be part of the full project. They dug even deeper in the studio and I’m really proud of the way this turned out – Stephen Mougin, producer.
The track features: Brian Oberlin on vocals and mandolin, Eric Langejans on Harmony ocal and guitar, Grant Flick on fiddle, Todd Kirchner on bass, Ricky Mier on banjo, and guest harmony vocals by Katie Kirchner.
The song, along with an interview, debuted this morning on Mike Kear’s Music From Foggy Hollow on Hawkesbury Radio in Sydney, Australia.
Full Cord will celebrate their album release with a performance at The Station Inn in Nashville, TN on November 10.

About Full Cord:
When it comes to movers and shakers in the bluegrass world, Full Cord is a super-group on the rise. After winning the prestigious 2022 Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition in Colorado, the Michigan-based group followed that with another much-coveted honor when the International Bluegrass Music Association named Full Cord its “Momentum Award Band of the Year.” While mandolinist Brian Oberlin notes the band’s music “is new and fresh to the ears of seasoned bluegrass fans,” the bluegrass traditions in Full Cord have deep roots. The group’s members – Oberlin, guitarist Eric Langejans, bassist Todd Kirchner and fiddler Grant Flick – boast decades of musical artistry, with experience in popular performing bands from Michigan to Oregon. And with the recent addition of award-winning, Colorado-based banjoist Ricky Mier, Full Cord is poised to take the next step in its journey as a bluegrass powerhouse: The band’s debut album on Nashville’s Dark Shadow Recordings is set to drop in November 2023.
