Earlier this year I had the intense pleasure of being introduced to North Carolina folk rock quartet River Whyless through their debut album A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door as well as their opening slot for one of my new favorite bands Little Tybee's tour. I spoke pretty highly of their album - and rightly so as the the album is simply amazing. But if you're anything like me and haven't gotten the chance to see the band live just yet, you're in luck and you get to do the next best thing.
Not too long ago River Whyless recorded a live version of their song "Widows Walk" off A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door for Audiotree Live and it's bewitching. Inspired by their time on Martha's Vineyard in an old cottage isolated from the rest of civilization, overlooking the ocean, and besieged by storms where the foursome went to record their debut album, "Widows Walk" is one of the album's strongest tracks: (a feat considering how strong the debut is all around) a spellbinding tale that displays River Whyless' narrative prowess. But in the live session, you get to display River Whyless' stellar musicianship firsthanded.
