Listening to the Rivers

Dustin Hahn |

The word “rivers” can mean a lot in Eau Claire, but another meaning is three years in the making. Rivers consists of experienced local musicians Dexter Wolfe (Sky Lion), Pat Kuehn (Adelyn Rose, Thresher Shark) and Colin Carey (Dust Of Men). They have been working on their debut album since meeting in late 2010. The reason for this length of time can be attributed to Wolfe who took two trips to study overseas and Kuehn’s studying at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, making him only available during breaks from school. The group stuck it out, however, and have received help from good friend Leo Strei of Adelyn Rose and assistance in recording and production by Sean Carey of S. Carey and Bon Iver. They have started a Kickstarter to get the funds to finish producing their album. As of Feb. 17 they have reached $1,671 of their $3,000 goal. Help them reach their goal by Feb. 28.
