River Whyless is named in spirit of its ongoing love affair with the natural world. Since its formation in 2009 the band has toured extensively, playing hundreds of shows from coast to coast and into Canada. Its debut album “A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door” was recorded in the band’s home studio in Asheville, NC and released in March of 2012. Its sound has been described as folk-rock, nature-pop, and baroque-folk, but in the end the members of River Whyless hope only to lend craft to their passions. Notable performances include Music on the Mountain Top, Bele Chere, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Shakori Hills, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival and supported Ben Sollee and Railroad Earth.
