South by Southwest can be somewhat of a whirlwind. With a multitude of artists rolling into town and playing music just about any place and any time you can imagine, the constant motion can make even the most ardent music-lover feel rushed and frantic. Fortunately, several of our favorite (or new favorite) SXSW artists were kind enough to take a break from the madness and play a few songs in our backyard.
The third in our series of stripped-down Riverview Sessions during SXSW features Wake Owl. Singer/songwriter Colyn Cameron is from Southern California but splits time in Portland, Ore., and Vancouver, B.C., these days. His band played us an acoustic version of “You’ll Never Go” from their recent EP Wild Country, and we share it with you here.
