In April 2014, the bluegrass quintet G2 once again returned on a flight to Nashville, the legendary city that has grown to be a second home for several members of the band. This time it was to record a new album. The result is Mind Over Matter, which demonstrates a more diverse musical range including a personal sound and sounwritin.

When performing live, G2 delivers energy and dynamics, as well as a feeling that your are sitting in their living room. It's acoustic music as it can best be experienced. G2's unique sound consists of a mix of pop and American roots music - a recipe that managed to capture both a younger and older audience and is the basis for their success, not least in the US, where they have toured extensively and in just a few years have become synonymous with world-class European bluegrass. They have performed in major music festivals in the company of artists like Merle Haggard, Sam Bush, David Grisman, Del McCoury and the Punch Brothers. They are the only non-American band that has ever played at the prestigious IBMA Awards show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
