Built upon intricate guitar embellishments, indie-folk facets and poetically pop melodies, LA River Bend succeeds in creating music of happy nostalgia. The four-piece, made up of Nate Weiner (Vocals, Guitar), Emily Elkin (Cello, Vocals), Branden Stroup (Bass, Vocals, Guitar) and Jacob Seldes (Drums) have honored traditions of Americana folk, by building the walls of their epic soundscapes, embracing dynamics and ultimately developing an aesthetic unique to their own. Their debut EP entitled Run These Hills was entirely self-recorded by Stroup, which he also mixed at Val Garay’s (James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt) The Barn. Mastered by Grammy award-winning Eric Boulanger (Eric Clapton, Green Day), the EP has already received the stamp of approval from industry professionals. Focused thematically on the symbolism of nature based imagery, their highly anticipated new music depicts an artfully serene feeling, reaching emotional depths.
