The Lone Bellow, River Whyless and more on Mountain Stage

Mountain Stage with Larry Groce is pleased to welcome The Lone Bellow, River Whyless, Marthy Scanlan, Royal Wood, and Hello June to Mountain Stage later this Fall.

[…] As an artist, Royal Wood channeled these polar opposite emotions into his new album ‘Ever After The Farewell’. Recorded in London, UK, with Jamie Scott (known for his work with renowned artists like Rag’n Bone Man, Michael Kiwanuka, Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran), Royal’s album is not only deeply inspired by both loss and love, but is an ode to the classic styles of both Tin Pan Alley and Laurel Canyon. To capture the rawest possible sound, most of the songs on the album were recorded the day they were written, with Royal playing the majority of the instruments. As fate would have it, Royal recorded the album on the Beatles EMI console that made Abbey Road possible. ‘Every day I walked into the studio in London, UK with the ghosts of my musical heroes sitting beside me.’ said Royal. ‘All of my life I wanted to make music with the Beatles, and now I feel like I have’ he joked.

This show will be broadcast via NPR Music starting November 30.
