Whether The Weathered Road is performing live or writing music, the word that comes to mind first, is passion. TWR has literally become a way of life in what was a natural evolution of the band. So many talented members have come and gone, but it remained the brainchild of singer-songwriter Christopher Bell. It has become his life’s work and he gives it everything he has. Put simply, TWR is a musical journey that allows us to connect or reconnect through song. It allows us to share words and feelings that we otherwise may not face, but music makes it feel right.
“Willing to Fall” is the second release by The Weathered Road. At first listen, it seems like a drastic departure from the "bluegrass" and pure "folk" sounds of their first album, "A New Road Home". Tracks like "I Will", and "Home", are gaining national attention, with catchy hooks and memorable lyrics. What TWR has focused on over the last few years is the simplicity of the craft. TWR has finally found it’s true voice and you can hear it resonating within the new material. The catalyst for that is the amazing musicians who now join the collaborative project that IS The Weathered Road. For any songwriter, there is an expectation of growth from album to album. This album encapsulates that growth musically and lyrically.
As we always say...
Music is mood.
Many new songs and new grooves are on the way!
