“Pulling Sorrow,” Mike River’s latest album, offers a flavorful mix of classic country and Americana, tunes that River wrote last year during the pandemic.

Originally eleven tracks, River streamlined the set down to six songs, which represent the veteran songwriter’s finest work to date and features a stellar cast of musicians that include John Macy and Jeremy Lawton, Rhett Lee and Colin Burke of Carolyn’s Mother, Craig Dubin, drummer of several of River’s previous bands, Greg Gibb of Rubber Planet, and Braden Rauen.
