Listening to The Pines, you can hear the lyrics and guitar parts meld together to form a engrossing, beautifully dark sound, seizing listeners and commanding their attention with a somber tone that is all things americana, blues, and folk. Getting their start in Minneapolis, frontmen Benson Ramsey and David Huckfelt bring their music to life with a sound akin to musicians such as Bob Dylan and Ryan Adams. Garnering a loyal following from Minneapolis, The Pines have toured extensively, captivating audiences with their acoustic sound that blends impeccably with haunting electric guitar grooves and keyboard parts, played by Alex Ramsey, that complete a truly intimate atmosphere.
The Pines stopped by Studio 1A to share some of their music from their new album, Above the Prairie, and played at the Cactus Cafe on Wednesday, February 24th. If you missed your chance to see them live, fret not, you can stream them here on KUTX.
