Bears of Blue River - Nitetrotter Session
As the seasons change from cold to warm and our spirits grow immensely as we rejoice with our first steps out of the dark house into the beautiful sun we again realize how lucky we are to be alive. For Gavin Wilkinson the man behind Bears of Blue River, season doesn't matter. With an optimistic outlook like Wilkinson's nothing can bring you down. It was a real delight to go and track this session with complete strangers but now totally new friends. Bears of Blue River capture all the beauty of life with just a guitar and voice. Accompanied with the female love of Maggie Gard to really hold this soft sounds together. As they continue to tour the United States and lay their mark on Chicago it is easy to see why the future is endless for this pair.
Check out this great footage of Bears of Blue River live in Gavin Wilkinson's bedroom where we tracked this glorious Nitetrotter session.
