“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
Fresh out of the studio, the band is ready to release their second album titled “You Animal” at the Ivywild School!
Mike Clark is a Colorado native living on the banks of the Arkansas River in Pueblo. In the winter of 2014 he 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. Months later, with a string section added to the lineup, the River Arkansas was born. The River Arkansas has traveled the south and western United States touring on their debut release “Golden Light,” as well as playing shows all across Colorado with their distinctive mixture of Country, Blues, Folk and Americana.
