The day has finally come, the “Mountain Rock” band, Whitacre, finally released their ten track, debut album ‘Seasons‘ which takes Alt- Americana and Folk influences and cranks it up to ten. The album essentially is a metaphor for the phases of life. Every song brings something new to the table, a different experience, a different lessoned learned. Here’s what the band had to say about the song ‘Prodigal‘:
“At the risk of sounding a bit cliche, ‘Prodigal’ was a monumental song for the band. It was the first time we really collaborated on the writing process – every member contributed to the lyrics, the story, the melody, etc. It was a special moment to let others into the creative process for the first time, and it really set the tone for how we’ve written songs ever since,” frontman Paul Whitacre explains.
“Every member of this band has a story of running away from ‘home.’ We’ve all lived through a time that we were doing the exact opposite of what we knew we were supposed to be doing. ‘Prodigal’ touches on the presence of hope and redemption, regardless of how low you are in life.”
‘Seasons‘ certainly is a great showing for a debut album. It’s well written with the heart and focus of a seasoned professional.
