Valley Maker to Appear on Birn ALIVE
April 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Tune in to BIRN1 on Friday, April 26 at 6:00 p.m. for a special live performance and interview by indie band Valley Maker.
Valley Maker is an indie/ folk rock band based in Seattle, Washington. They are signed to FrenchKiss Records and are about to start up another tour following their recent album release.
The album is titled “Rhododendron”, and was released this past October. “This album is lyrically intricate while also maintaining an airy atmosphere that is easy to listen to casually. Austin Crane, the man behind Valley Maker, named the album after “the common plant which springs up in both Crane’s native south and his current home in Washington” – a metaphor that is very central to the overall theme of each song and transition”.
Crane recently received his Ph.D. at the University of Washington in Human Geography, and it’s easy to hear that theme reflected in his music. Much of the lyrical content throughout Rhododendron touches on issues of migration, borders, and humanitarianism.
