Americana/Indie Folk (Washington, D.C.)
As Vandaveer, Mark Charles Heidinger and Rose Guerin and a revolving crew of participants craft textural and atmospheric songs that fold in diverse but perfectly complementary ingredients, from dusty Americana to melodic Folk/Pop to weary Country. Whether in Band-like Rock arrangements or Richard Thompson-tinged waltzes or Sparklehorse-flecked melancholy, Vandaveer finds the heart and soul of the songs they compose and the stories they convey. Give them half a chance and they’ll find your heart and soul as well.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Tom Waits rains bourbon tears on Mark Linkous’ grave, Exene Cervenka sings devotionals at his side. (Brian Baker, CityBeat)
~ "Folk music, with none of the historical bullshit." (Washington City Paper)
~ "Dig Down Deep is an intricate, cohesive collection of heartfelt songs that offer music as rich as the lyrical content. It’s an emphatic demonstration of Vandaveer’s wide array of talents and an excellent addition to their catalogue." (Consequence of Sound)
