The new song from Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno isn't reinventing the folk genre. "Will You" is a straightforward, modern folk song that keeps one foot in traditional folk. You've heard songs like "Will You" before, and you will again. But you might not hear one done quite this well for a long, long time. Leva and Calcagno have put together an absolutely perfect folk song. This is a song that is going to be beloved by both folk purists and fans of pop folk. I can't really explain what works so well with this pairing of artists. Sometimes musicians just click, and the result it pure magic. That's the case with "Will You."
You can watch the live performance video of "Will You" below. The self-titled album from Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno is due out on March 12 via Free Dirt Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno, check out their website.
