NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE NOW: You See This River
Click on one of the links below to get your copy. It's Brooklyn-based Americana; it can pump you up or cradle you, a la Lumineers, Sarah Jarosz or Mumford and Sons.
The stories here are of the primal instinct for nostalgia, the beautiful and terrible journey up and down the river, the persistence, romanticism, and pig-headedness of humans. The title track captures this journey on the river – sometimes deliberate, sometimes meandering, indeed sometimes treacherous, with no apparent way to jump the current, all the while watched by those who choose to stand on the sidelines. All we might know for sure is that we’ll float another day.
We look forward to hearing your feedback after you order.
