In America the band has been lauded by Rolling Stone for bringing an “exuberance to the stage…each taking solo parts between lushly harmonized chorus parts.” Now, after stunning audiences at their debut mainland UK show at London’s Gibson Show Rooms, King Calaway are being hotly tipped this side of the pond.
Working alongside co-producers Robert Deaton and Ross Copperman (who also penned several of the band’s songs), the band has recorded an album that allows their musicianship and personalities to shine through. The expressed their excitement stating, “Rivers is a milestone in all of our lives and a new chapter in our journey as a band. We could not be more proud of what we have created.”
