“This band is an amalgamation of folk and pop and beyond. Brilliant harmonies and words. An abundance of talent from this Asheville band.” ~Bob Boilen
“Like Fleet Foxes, River Whyless have a contemplative, relaxed style. The instrumentation weaves together seamlessly, a high point being Anderson’s violin playing, and the band’s soothing harmonies.” ~ Bruce Warren, WXPN
Mail The Horse
Mail the Horse is a country clunker of a five-piece careening down a highway laid to waste with Stones psychedelia and heartbroken hymnals, the tailpipe stuffed with marigolds. Recorded with Hunter Davidsohn (Porches, Frankie Cosmos) at Business District Recording in Western New York, their new EP, Magnolia (out June 10) channels the vibes of mid to late 70s Stones and elements of Springsteen.
Formed in summer 2012, the Columbus Cooperative comprises members of the music, design, nonprofit, and hospitality industries. Working on a volunteer basis alongside the Theatre’s ownership, the Cooperative works to reinvigorate both the Theatre and the West End community by programming a range of unique live events in an unequaled space.
