Pre-order ‘Headlights’ HERE
MapleMusic Recordings is proud to announce its latest signing, the Vancouver based folk rockers The River and The Road, who will be releasing their sophomore album ‘Headlights‘ on May 12, 2015. Produced and mixed by Jamey Koch (The Tragically Hip, Ron Sexsmith), the album was recorded in both Vancouver and Toronto.
‘Headlights‘ is at times a bold step away from the acoustic songwriting that initially drove them, a change that can be likened to the evolution of their live performances. What has become clear is that The River and The Road is a band that defies definition and is willing to take chances. The album hums with a mosaic of harmonies and has a fluidity that is reminiscent of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Ryan Adams. From the dazzling complexity of their ballad ‘Coulee (The Prairie Song),’ to the foot stompin’, head noddin’ ‘Child With A Gun’, to their infectious ‘Strange Disease‘ – this is one addictive and enduring record.
