PREMIERE: Climb The Sky’s Melodic, Optimistic ‘Wake Up With The Sun’

Trevor Larkin is perhaps best known for his work as the guitarist for soul singer-songwriter Allen Stone.

What you should also know is that Larkin fronts his own rock band here in Nashville. That band is Climb The Sky, and its music plays great homage to the stalwarts of melodic rock and roll, while exploring the range of emotions we experience in our shared human experience.

The album’s urban electronica landscape was a noted departure from Webb’s singer-songwriter roots, while the record found itself under record label censorship due to its unabashed critiques on political and spiritual matters.

On Friday night, Webb celebrated 10 years of his landmark album at The Basement in Nashville, trading in the album’s multi-layered soundscapes for an evening of acoustic interpretations.

So, if we can toot our own horns for a second… we hit the mark with this one. Friday night’s lineup certainly had a little something for everyone who packed into Nashville’s historic Douglas Corner Cafe.
