The music is a patchwork amalgam of influences, including: twangy Southern rock (they’ve opened for the Drive-By Truckers), reverb-soaked psychedelia reminiscent of early My Morning Jacket or fellow Athens residents Phosphorescent, soaring guitar solos à la Neil Young and Crazy Horse, rhythmic jangle from that other Athens band, REM, multi-part vocal harmonies (which every band ought to have, dammit), and, weaving through it all, lyrical slide guitar.
Close your eyes at a Futurebirds concert and they’ll transport you to memories of great times, horrible breakups, good looking women, late-nights with friends, simple easy days as a child, your awkward phases of life, a positive outlook on what the future holds, and everything in-between. This is song-writing ladies and gentlemen. This is a band that has it. They’ve got the magic that pulls your heartstrings while simultaneously warming the heart and soul.”

Hunter Park is She Returns From War, formed in Charleston, South Carolina in 2012, inspired by the style and glamour of musicians like Parton, Parsons, and of course Emmy Lou. Park has had three official releases including two EPs in 2014 and a debut album “Oh What a Love” in 2015, the same year she was nominated one of Charlie Magazine’s 50 most progressive. In 2016 Park graced the cover of Charleston City Paper’s singer-songwriter of the year. After touring extensively off the release of the new record, Park has found herself back in the studio working on a sophomore album to be released in early 2018.
