Soup of the Day #18: Andrew Heringer Band- Roads

Los Angeles, California singer songwriter Andrew Heringer has his hands and voice in many musical pots, but his 2010 album, Under California Skies, with the Andrew Heringer Band remains one of his best projects to date. This beautiful record bleeds folk, rock, and americana influences as Heringer was listening to Ryan Adams, Wilco, Bob Dylan and Counting Crows during the process. Most of the lyrics on the album deal with change in life with relationships, early adulthood, and the concept of home and belonging somewhere, which is encompassed in the album's opening song and today's Soup of the Day: Roads

Roads is a stellar recording, both in its mention of starry nights and its quality, that blossomed from a free write poem. You will hear a lot of Ryan Adams in this track, but the influences do not overpower the musicianship, songwriting, and replay value in one of the best folk songs that I have come across on the site so far.

Under California Skies is still available as a free download. Check out Andrew Heringer's website for more info.
