The River and the Road 'The River, the Road' (mini-documentary)

The River and the Road 'The River, the Road' (mini-documentary)
Today (May 12), Vancouver folk rockers the River and the Road are releasing their album Headlights through MapleMusic Records, and for listeners who are interested in learning a little more about the band, they are now the subjects of a 14-minute mini-doc.

The featurette is titled The River, the Road. It follows the Vancouverites to Prince George, BC, for what's described as "one of their strangest gigs to date": as the musical act of a Rogers Hometown Hockey event. It features intimate performance footage along with interview clips, and we learn about the band's history, tour habits, and their struggles to find success as indie musicians.

Watch the mini-doc by filmmakers Jon Hernandez and Jordan Wong below.
