Here at AUK, we’re trying to keep spirits high during these strange days by asking some great artists to record exclusive live mini-gigs just for you, dear reader! Denver-based Whitacre make folk music with a little extra grit – they call their style ‘mountain rock’.
This band is all about positivity and they describe their mission as: “…a burning desire to tell a story that isn’t often told in the music industry today. One of redemption and restoration. We want to reassure the broken-hearted that there is hope, we want to show the invisible that we see them and that they matter. We believe that doesn’t only happen in lyrics but in a melody as well. We
believe in the power of music and that it is used to soften and heal
hearts.” Watch out for their new album, ‘Seasons’, which is due out on 17th April. Frontman Paul Whitacre, has recorded one of their new songs, ‘Peach’, exclusively for us. This was a new experience for him as it was performed without the band for the very first time, mirroring the real and emotional isolation many of us feel right now. Excellent stuff.
And as the man says, “Rock on and be safe out there!”
