    After recently screening How to Grow a Band, I am really excited for people to see it in New York for it's release today! I thought the doc was a great look into the Punch Brothers' beginning days and how insanely talented each of it's members are.

    Ego struggles and innovator's laments (nobody gets us!) are a refrain in many band documentaries. How to Grow a Band adds a modest but effective entry to the genre's back catalog.

    Thile has the charisma, presence, and emotional transparency of a great documentary subject, but How To Grow A Band maintains a respectable distance from its subject that ultimately doesn't work in its favor.

    Devotees of folk and bluegrass -- and, of course, diehard Nickel Creek fans -- are the natural audience for this leisurely paced documentary.
