Asheville folk group River Whyless will make their debut at SPACE next Friday, August 12. The four-piece band, three of whom are songwriters, has been playing together in various forms since college. In the time since, River Whyless has perfected their haunting and contemplative sound, seamlessly blending soft, sweet ballads and foot-stomping anthems. NPR’s “All Songs Considered” host Bob Boilen noted, “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.” SPACE is thrilled to welcome River Whyless next Friday, just a few weeks before the band releases its new album, We All The Light. Watch first video “All Day, All Night” below and get your tickets to see River Whyless at SPACE.
