I first heard Chris Thile in some songs of his band Nickel Creek and his voice and amazing mandoline skills captured my interest. I was even more impressed when I checked out his 2004 solo album, Deceiver.
Deceiver is one of these albums that defy categories and generes. It is a mix of country, pop, rock, and folk. Chris Thile plays ALL 39 instruments on the album, which include violin, mandolin, mandola, bass guitar, electric guitar, and many percussion instruments.
Check out some of my favorites off the album.

>> Ready For Anything
