About

ps_3Pressing Strings is a soul stirring trio based out of the musically fertile scene of Annapolis, Maryland. Their sound is versatile and stems from lead singer Jordan Sokel’s soulful, bluesy songwriting combined with a solid and dynamic rhythm section. Anchored by drummer Brandon Bartlett and bassist Nick Welker, their musical influences span genres and generations. As a result their fan base does the same.

All three members grew up basically on the Mason-Dixon line, in the shadow of Appalachia and sewn into the seams of the Chesapeake. That brackish water seems likely and fitting to represent their style of music. Rootsy and organic, funky and melodic. Their last record, Life of a Tree was released in November 2014. Then they recorded a few tracks at Burley Oak Brewery and those songs are included on their new release titled Owe The Source.

We love everything about music.  Listening, creating it, performing, talking about it.  But most of all, we love sharing it with as many people on the planet as possible.  Over the past 10 years we have shared the stage and room with so many amazing bands and fans. Now we want to create something that gives a full view of Pressing Strings, where we came from and where we are going.


Welcome to  FANthology.


This is our life-work: A collection of all our songs and our most creative endeavors consolidated neatly into 10 packages. We present them here in limited form, many signed and numbered.

If you're not a fan now, we hope to make you a fan at our next event or with our next record. And by being a part of this project you will be a huge help in finishing our newest record which we have been working on for the past few months.  

We have been working with  Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Jose James, Rachel Platten, Vampire Weekend…)  and Neil Dorfsman (Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, Bob Dylan...). Between the two of them they have 12 Grammys.  Without a doubt, recording and promoting this next album will be the most amazing thing we have done as a band. But we need some help from you beautiful people!


The memories we have from creating this music will only be better if we can share it with you, our fans. And to be clear, we are your fans as well. We want to make sure that you are receiving something meaningful out of helping our band with such a tall order.


This next 12 months will take us on a journey across the country and and into a promotions plan that will cost money and take time.

We are asking our fans to help us on this journey.... to experience the music in a different way.
