Grateful Web Interview with Caroline Rose | New Music Review

Upon first listening to Caroline Rose’s America Religious (releasing July 2), I found it fresh and catchy. On my second listen, I settled in and it opened up to me – or I to it. In the lyrics I found political and social commentary nestled into the metaphors, and a little bit more of a lead foot as I drove down the road. I found a friend in her music; one who thinks similarly to me and who cares about the big picture and all its little breath-beings.

Grateful Web Interview with The Last Bison

Getting to the heart of Ben Hardesty, and thus The Last Bison, wasn’t difficult. Like their music, Ben is open, honest and founded in truth; the Last Bison’s spirituality and constant drive toward joy echoes in their sound and lyrics. The band stays grounded, but light, as they recite their mantra: Every day is the best day. And for The Last Bison, it truly is.
