The WeatherVanes are a four piece folk-rock band based out of the greater DC area. They came together after a series of start ups, shut downs, craigslist ads, and adult beverages. Now just two years old—with management in place, a record under their belt, and gas in the tank—the band is taking off.
The latest EP “Morning Light” (released Dec ’11) has been compared to a mix of Ryan Adams, Tom Petty, and Gov’t Mule. Even though the band says, “we are flattered just to be in the same sentence with them”, the similarities are hard to ignore. The arrangements are thought out, the songwriting is from the heart and the musicianship is from the soul. You can hear it on the CD and you can see it live—these guys love what they are doing.
