Music on the Porch: Look Homeward
Hosted by The Center for the Study of the American South
Look Homeward is a band of brackish brethren hailing from the piedmont of North Carolina. Lee Anderson (guitar, vocals), Alex Bingham (upright bass), Evan Ringel (trombone, fiddle) and Wilson Greene IV (banjo) pair the Appalachian drawls and passionate picking of venerated field recordings with the soul tones of Atlantic beaches and boggy bayous. Marrying banjos with brass, the quartet celebrates the American South in a mingling of old and new, traditional yet surprising. Add honest folk songwriting and the result is music that just might sound like home, wherever you’re from.
Look Homeward’s first EP, The Hunger and the Ghost, was released in Fall 2013 and met with unexpected success. Their first full-length studio album was released in May 2015 and is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
