Combining folk-rock inspirations and alternative rock sways, Okkervil River creates a particular visionary sound, strongly founded on dark and profound lyrics and on chaotic visions of patterned sound compounds. Okkervil River is a mutual project of Will Robison Sheff (vocals, guitar), and Seth Warren (guitar), born when both were still in high school, in Meriden, NH. After several years and multiple life experiences, at the end of the '90s the duo eventually decided to re-assemble the band, by then with an extended lineup, after they both relocated to Austin, TX. Following the addition of Zachary Thomas (vocals, bass), Jonathan Meiburg (vocals, banjo), and drummer Mark Pedini, Okkervil River reappeared. In 1998, the group offered their first and self-released disc, the EP Bedroom, followed a year later by Stars Too Small to Use, the band's debut album. During the succeeding years, the band regularly played live on numerous occasions, including an appearance at the South by Southwest festival in 2000. Don't Fall in Love With Everyone You See, the group's second album, showed up in 2002, re-affirming the band's cult all over the Texas music scene.

Okkervil River  01/04/2006            
Okkervil River is some of the most beautiful, heart-wrenching music I have heard in such a long time. The lyrics are thought provoking, it will break your heart. Okkervil isn't for everyone, but those who can appreciate lyrics and listen to music as an experience rather than as a distraction, I can't recommend anyone else.
