The last song I posted was a folk song and this song is also a folk song. If you read just my words, you would think I’m on some sort of folk kick. But just take a listen and you’ll realize both awesome songs are worlds apart. Slow It Down by The Lumineers is rather rootsy. This song, Tumbleweed, by The Great American Canyon is atmospheric. The first is akin to Ryan Adams, the latter, and the one I’m featuring here, is more like Bon Iver.
Originally from Baltimore, The Great American Canyon Band is the husband and wife duo of Paul and Krystal Jean Masson. Like their name, their sonic presence is expansive. Now from Chicago, they only had access to some secondhand guitars and microphones. They made due with whiskey jugs, an old rocking chair, hand clapping, and feet stomping for their forthcoming debut album.
Tumbleweed is their first single and as a song about love and travel, it fits right at home here on 1146 miles.
Here is their Facebook. Enjoy.
