Greg Liszt has a Ph.D. in molecular biology, he’s played Madison Square Garden as part of Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions band, and he was the banjo player for the renowned progressive string band Crooked Still. But none of these accolades are the reason for his visit to the studio today. Today is all about his original music, which has come to fruition in his side-project-turned-full-time-endeavor — the contemporary bluegrass band, The Deadly Gentlemen.

The band formed in Brighton in 2008, with its currently line-up taking shape in 2010, just as Crooked Still was winding down. They’ve spent the last year and half on the road, and they’ve just released their debut full-length album on Rounder Records, Roll Me, Tumble Me.
