New single from the upcoming debut full-length, The Nature of Storms.

alternative folk-rock trio Whippoorwill – (guitar, vocals), (guitar, banjo, harmonica, vocals), and (drums, vocals) – finished work in February 2019 on a much-anticipated full-length debut album. Produced by (, ) and mixed by Duane Lundy (Jim James, Ringo Starr) at Lexington, KY’s Shangri-La Studio, the album is the product of two years touring the American west honing a sound both expansive and raw, rootsy and otherworldly, and always landing in the grittier ‘alt’ corners of country and folk.

“Cathartic, experiential alt-folk written by boots-in-the-dirt, partner-in-crime country girls ( and ) and delivered across drummer ’s vast percussive landscape. For Whippoorwill, there’s little separation between the soul and the scenery– heartbreak is a ripped floodplain and longing, an unbroken expanse of sky. It’s Cormac McCarthy meets Neil Young via non-traditional banjo, long harmonica riffs, distorted guitar, and three-part harmonies that can scorch, soar, or haunt accordingly.”

The band has shared the stage with Bonnie Raitt, Big Thief, Shovels and Rope, Mipso, and Aaron Lee Tasjan. With palpable chemistry, dynamic live shows, and a long-game approach to their creative work, Whippoorwill has become a Colorado darling and one of the region’s most-hyped bands on the brink. Stay tuned for The Nature of Storms in the fall of 2019.
