The debut solo LP from the virtuosic multi-instrumentalist and International Bluegrass Music Association's Guitar Player of the Year, When You're Ready finds the sweet spot between technical prowess and emotional acuity. Tuttle is a gifted player whose flatpicking, claw hammer, and cross-picking guitar and banjo skills have made her an in-demand collaborator over the years; she spent her formative days picking alongside her father in the family bluegrass ensemble the Tuttles. Left to her own devices, Tuttle has emerged as a deft songwriter with an open heart, a keen ear for melody, and a flair for pairing dusty folk with Americana-kissed country-pop.
