Influence by the classics in rock, surf, folk and country, Mawrcrest has embarked on a journey exploring new horizons in what defines an American band. What you will experience with this band is a century of popular music reinterpreted by the soul of a new generation, that is Mawrcrest.
The music of Rock Falls, singer/songwriter Annie Reese, exists in the first light of the day, when shadows are just becoming forms, and the world feels like it is rebuilding itself out of the night. Her hushed, soulful delivery belies a massive emotional power that smolders like Billie Holiday and lilts like Patsy Cline. These original compositions are evocative of the croonings of Roy Orbison and Jeff Buckley as well as the intimacy of Iron and Wine, Mazzy Star, and Nina Nastasia. From the hopeful sway of “Message in a Bottle” to the longing of “Tonight, Tonight” her voice is at once timeless and immediate.
