I have got great news for all you acoustic folk lovers and the origin of these news is located in Nashville, Tennessee. There you find a young band called The Vespers consisting of Callie Cryar, Phoebe Cryar, Bruno Jones and Taylor Jones. And as far as I can tell their music will hit the scene with great impact.
By now they are recording their first full-length album which will be released at the beginning of 2010 and if you listen to the tracks included in this post, I’m sure you’ll be as facinated as I am. Their sound is somehow unique and classical at once. The beautiful and bleary piano in “No,” He Said is just one aspect of the music they play. Listen to Eyes Wide Open and you’ll hear a first class acoustic guitar driven folk song telling a sad and personal story about grandfather’s last words.
The symbiosis of Callie’s and Phoebe’s voices with the rest of the instrumentation sounds heavently and a feeling will creep over you that two angels are singing and whispering their tales right into your ears. The themes of their voices vary widely wherefore they cover a large spectrum of different timbres – and this makes the music rich and colorful.
I myself can’t wait for the new album to be released and I’m also very curious how they integrate percussions and upright bass because their tracks seems to be perfect as they are. But I’m sure they’ll find a way to enrich them and make them even better. If you want to hear more of this amazing music visit The Vespers’ MySpace page and enjoy six more songs. 2010 will be a good year, be prepared.
