[ Album Review ] Beech Hill - Midwinter EP

Artist: Beech Hill
Album: Midwinter EP

     Beech Hill have crafted a sound similar to folk legends The Avett Brothers, Fleet Foxes, and the indie folk band Bon Iver. Blending crisp sweet vocals with haunting distant harmonies, over top handpicked acoustic guitars. 

     The band hails from Nova Scotia, taking in inspiration from the beautiful, and rugged coastline surroundings of  Cape Breton Island. They sing of endless starry nights, watching concerts in the grass, and on the song "Annie, Were You Waiting?", showcase their knack for writing catchy love songs. 

     Sailing effortlessly through the emotions of everyday life, getting older, appreciating nature, and the trials and tribulations of love everyone can relate to. 

     Beech Hill consists of members Neil MacQuarrie, Jesse Fraser, Jessie Ryan and Peter MacInnis. Acoustic Guitar, Smooth bass lines, steady drums, gorgeous harmonies and a few bluegrass instruments sprinkled in here and there combine to make a full sounding acoustic EP that will definitely get you through the Midwinter blues.
