NPR First Listen Streams “Masterful” River Whyless Album We All The Light, Out August 26th on Roll Call Records
Touring East And West Coast With Blind Pilot This Fall
August 19, 2016 – River Whyless will release their new album We All The Light (Roll Call Records) next week, but you can stream it early via NPR Music First Listen. Listen here.
NPR Music’s Bob Boilen says “on River Whyless' masterful second album, We All The Light, four ego-less musicians blend their talents on violin, guitars, drums, harmonium, cello, banjo, toy piano and (most importantly) vocal harmonies to make a record steeped in the American acoustic tradition. And, though I first came across the Asheville, N.C., band at a small club in Nashville during AmericanaFest 2015, River Whyless doesn't play country, folk or roots rock. Think Paul Simon; think imaginative arrangements with accents of music from around the world. The lyrics are deep and the hooks are strong.”
The album’s first single, “All Day All Night,” continues to take off at radio. The track is getting support from over 26 Triple A/Non-Comm stations to date, including the nationally syndicated NPR program World Cafe, WFUV (NY, NY), XPN (Philadelphia, PA), KXT (Dallas, TX), WYEP (Pittsburgh, PA), KTBG (Kansas City, MO), WUMB (Boston, MA) and Open Air (Denver, CO).
Watch the stunning video for “All Day All Night” here.
The band will hit the road with Blind Pilot this fall for a series of East and West coast dates, as well as a number of festivals and their own headlining dates.
