Westrock – “Life from a Lift Chair”


Westrock‘s latest album, Welcome to the River, finds the Colorado-based band infuse folk, country, and rock within lyrical sentiments adoring the beauty of the outdoors. In particular, the band cites the release’s “common theme” as “friends, adventures, and peace somewhere in the sun.” In singing about crisp mountain air and the beauty of their native Colorado, “Life from a Lift Chair” is among the album’s highlights. Strings enter in the second half, adding further vibrancy and preceding lyrical sentiments lamenting the impact of tourists on untouched outdoor beauty. The track is spirited and vibrant, much like the energy of the album throughout. The quick guitar plucks, strings, and resonating vocals combine for a memorable force throughout.
