Title - 'Seasons'
Artist - Whitacre
Fusing elements of Americana, folk and rock with punk tinges, Whitacre has become one of Denver’s fastest rising bands, selling out shows with Mt. Joy, Wild Child, and Birdtalker, playing legendary venues such as Red Rocks and The Bluebird Theater, and amassing half a million streams on Spotify.
With the release of their sensational, and truly thoroughbred debut album, Seasons (out April 17th, 2020) and a national tour planned in support, the trio comprised of Paul Whitacre (lead vocals, guitar), Chase Perry (banjo), and Mark Cunningham (drums) are poised to break out nationwide.
2. 'Sailor's Sun'

5. 'Here, Again'
6. 'The Journey Home'
9. 'Stand My Ground'
10. 'Between Dreams'
The self-described “mountain rock” band kick things off with the brilliantly atmospheric 'Lost,' back it with both 'Sailor's Sun' and my own personal favorite, the title track 'Seasons' (complete with its harmonious melodies), and from there just take us all on quite a magnificent Americana folk ride.
With other stand out tracks coming thick and fast such as the mid-tempo, banjo-led ambiance of 'Southbound Train,' the road most travelled found within 'The Journey Home,' and both the smoothness of sound found on 'Stand My Ground,' and their latest single, the euphonious, foot-tappin' love song 'Peach,' it's actually that last one that front man Paul Whitacre wishes to elaborate on.
"All of us in the band feel like we've ‘outkicked our coverage’ with the girls we're dating/married to. Almost immediately upon getting married, I noticed this voice in my head saying that my wife would be better off with someone else."
"That's a really easy lie for me to believe. ‘Peach’ is a promise to my wife and a reminder to myself that no matter how bad the days get, we're sticking to the promise we made.”
