Colorado-based band The River Arkansas is comprised of members from Boulder, Saguache, Trinidad and Pueblo.
In the winter of 2014, while living on the banks of the Arkansas River in Pueblo, Mike Clark penned a collection of songs about heartbreak, love and escaping the clutches of day‐to‐day society. The following spring, Clark decided to make that collection into a record. By good fortune, Macon Terry, a bass player and good friend of Clark’s happened to be in the neighborhood the day the studio was booked for recording. Though Terry arrived not knowing any of the songs, what they captured was the beginning of something great. Later they would add drums, violin, and piano.
The band has traveled the midwestern, southern, and western United States, playing shows across Colorado that deliver their distinctive mixture of country, blues, folk and Americana. “The sound of this band is absolutely at home at any mountain festival, but don’t assume it to be another one‐trick folk pony. No way. This’ll play in the city.” ‐Stubborn Sounds
