RELEASE DAY IS HERE!

Today is release day for the EP. We are over the moon about the support we've gotten so far from family, friends, fans old and new, and the writers who took the time to sit down and listen over the past couple of weeks. There's no stopping us now, and we'd love your continued support. Share, buy, gift, spread the love around. Every little bit counts.

And COME SEE US ON TOUR

The Bluegrass Situation streams the EP plus WORLD CAFE!!

"Throughout all five tracks on River Whyless though, I'm reminded of the difference between a hand-knit hat and one run off an endless conveyor belt, between baking cookies from scratch or just cutting into a big Nestle log of pre-made dough. We lose a closeness to things when they come to us processed through machines, and the way this music from River Whyless comes to us feels hand-wrought. There's something valuable about that process, even as we look to the future." - Caitlin White, The Bluegrass Situation

"Miles of Skyline" Premieres at PopMatters!

These past few Fridays have been fun! Today PopMatter's premiered "Miles of Skyline" from the EP (out next week!) and had some nice words to go along:

"With a cool percussive pattern and plinked notes juxtaposed against a windy, beautiful violin, "Miles of Skyline" is an instrumentally sophisticated number by the promising folk outfit River Whyless."

Don't forget to head to the tour page to stay up to date with our travels.

And you can still preorder the EP on our Merchandise page!

NPR Tiny Desk Contest - "Life Crisis"

We submitted to the NPR Music All Songs Considered #TinyDeskContest last night.

We actually recorded this back in early October, before the contest was announced. Then we heard about the contest and were like "hello! perfect!" (uncharacteristic Mean Girls ESPN reference redacted)

Brock Scott (Little Tybee) is a maker of beautiful things and a dreamer of great ideas. Thanks for capturing it.


Airline to Heaven - Studio Video
