Nickel Creek are the acclaimed acoustic band specialising in bluegrass-rich sounds that often stray between country and indie rock while always sticking to the heavily bluegrass side of the music; a sound the band itself has referred to as "progressive acoustic" and "newgrass". The band formed in 1989 with Chris Thile (mandolin, vocals) and siblings Sara (violin, fiddle, vocals) and Sean Watkins (guitar, vocals) and originally with Chris Thile's father Scott playing string bass. The found fame with the release of their official debut album Nickel Creek (2000) -- although they had two unofficial releases much earlier Little Cowpoke (1993) and Here to There (1997). Produced by the country/bluegrass star Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek had moderate success, reaching No.2 in the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.
