Supergroups tend to be tricky. There’s no guarantee that slamming together a handful of undeniably talented musicians will result in something greater than the sum of its members. Thankfully, I’m With Her, the smashing collective of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan, is a beautiful cohesion of tight harmonies, acoustic brilliance, and fresh songwriting. See You Around, their first proper record, comes after a slew of EPs and singles that hinted at their promise as a trio. With 11 new originals and a cover of a previously unreleased Gillian Welch tune, See You Around is an excellent debut full-length from this stellar trio.

Watkins, O’Donovan, and Jarosz elevate the record by offering the best of their respective musical skills. Watkins is already a bluegrass legend for her work with Nickel Creek and the Watkins Family Family Hour, O’Donovan made waves with her group Crooked Still before releasing her smash solo debut Fossils in 2013, and Jarosz has cut an excellent path as a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter. All this considered, ego never gets in the way of their collaboration, a cue most other supergroups should take to heart. The album works best when the three elevate each other’s strengths, complementing one another with gorgeous vocal harmonies or subtle acoustic accompaniments. Despite the wealth of talent album, nothing feels overstuffed – everything clicks right into harmonious place.  Actually released back in 2018 but somehow this beauty slipped under our radar….not anymore!!
