The city of Aarhaus in Denmark is not one that often is brought up in conversation. In fact, I’d be hard pushed to remember a time when I’ve even heard of it. However, that city (Denmark’s second biggest city apparently) will forever be memorable to me as the birthplace of this new EP from Calming River.
An acoustic travelling troubadour who has made his way through Europe and beyond sharing his music with a growing fanbase, his reputation is built on a stunningly intimate live show. That close energy is translated to the new EP – ‘The Ones That We Left Behind’ – and does a great job of first capturing the listener’s ear and then keeping the attention with superb song writing skill.
