Armed only with a guitar, a microphone, and an intentionally raw recording vision, singer/songwriter Gar Ragland documented a particularly fertile and plaintive chapter of his life on his solo debut, Untethered. A creative mix of light-hearted odes and country ditties, regretful lovelorn tales, creative distillations of cover tunes, and thoughtful looks back at days gone by, Untethered offers an inclusive new approach to traditional acoustic music.

With the spirit of a boxcar troubadour, the complexly introspective nature of Nick Drake, and unusual chord structures of his mentor—enigmatic jazz pianist and educator Ran Blake—Ragland filters elements of his own life and Appalachian heritage through the lenses of his unique songwriting and innovative country-picker-meets-jazz-guitar sound.
