One of our featured artists for June is The Banner Days!
A talented singer/songwriter duo that creates harmonies in conjunction with great instrumentation!
When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the award winning, critically acclaimed album The Banner Days. That first night, they wrote My Beloved in two hours. And after a few more writing sessions, it was clear to them both, that these songs merited a bold decision.
From the first time they played together, along with Beth’s husband/collaborator Aaron Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth’s delicate, pure, and melodious voice and Bradford’s soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart wrenching harmonious blend.
Their dramatic crescendos, and minimalist intensity, through intricate harmonies have elicited comparisons to The Civil Wars, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Raising Sand.
With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford’s gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both artists that has garnered them awards and critical acclaim.
They toured and played 186 shows in 2015 & currently they find themselves back in the studio recording solo records before hitting the road again in late summer. Look out for this great duo in 2016!
