Six years, two albums and countless gigs after first forming as a band, River Whyless, the North Carolina-bred folk-rock outfit has discovered their evolution is a subtler albeit monumentally important one. This band is their lifeblood, their family and their love. To that end, with unspoken acceptance, the members of River Whyless, each songwriter, collectively puts aside his/her respective ego, and coalesces around each other’s creative vision to fully embrace the beauty of their enduring partnership.

Despite having never felt more unified in their vision for the future, much as they’ve navigated their freewheeling career to date, River Whyless is choosing to not predict what lies ahead. Allowing their creative union to continue guiding them, they insist, remains their only constant. “It feels like you’re on a journey with your family,” McWalters says of the satisfaction of being in a band like River Whyless. “It’s a beautiful thing.”
