Des Moines' The River Monks Explode onto National Scene
The River Monks have been called 'wistfully harmonious' and 'mega-folk,' descriptive of their multi-layered voices and the blend of traditional folk instrumentation with a modern, broad, lush perspective. Creating huge scapes of airy atmosphere and complex, diverse rhythm, and in the same breath hushing audiences with whispered dynamics, The River Monks deliver a polished brand of melody and texture, sure to please fans of Sufjan Stevens, Fleet Foxes, Simon & Garfunkel, and The Beach Boys.
