Hello friends! The blog is on indefinite hiatus. Thanks for the love and support!
Sometimes you come across a songwriter whose music goes straight for the heart with absolutely no pretention and one such person is Adrianne Lenker, the lead singer of Brooklyn, NY based Indie Rock outfit Big Thief. I met Adrianne and Buck (Big Thief's lead guitar player and backing vocalist) a few years back at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Kerrville, TX and was immediately drawn to their gorgeous harmonies and truthful writing. All the members of the band are humble, sweet, and ready for what's coming next. They were recently signed by Omaha, NE based label Saddle Creek and are looking towards a busy and exciting year to come.
The video tells the story of a band getting in their van, hitting the road, and showing us what it means to pursue a life in music. It is a tough job that requires lots of practice, flexibility, a sense of humor, and a willingness to put yourself out there each and every night no matter the venue or crowd. Three cheers for Big Thief and every artist who is pushing themselves to lay their story out on the table for everyone to hear.
