This immensely talented band from Asheville, North Carolina, is an amalgamation of folk and pop and beyond. Brilliant harmonies and words. River Whyless builds its music around fiddle, guitar and harmonies, with imagination and textures that set the band apart from many of its acoustic and folk-based peers. There are hints of Paul Simon in their inflections and poetic phrasing, and their songs feel fresh and nicely crafted.
