Atlanta Folk Band Graham And The Band Upstairs bring on the authentic on heartfelt new single “Home to You”, out February 3rd on streaming platforms. This is a band comfortable in their own skin enough to pay tribute to the classics, taking influence from Bob Dylan and Neil Young for their brand of folk songwriting. Bittersweet and written with incredible depth, “Home to You” is worthy of repeat listens.

“I’ve always liked songs that feature juxtaposition. Girl by The Beatles is one of the finest examples of this where the melody and Lennon’s vocals creates this sweet bed of breathing grass that you want to just wrap yourself up in. But when you actually listen to the lyrics you realize that the song is anything but sweet. There’s a bitterness behind the lyricism that creates this incredible contrast with the music. 

That’s what we tried to do with Home To You. We tell a story about someone navigating a complex relationship while Jeff (Jeff Dei Dolori, our lead guitarist) hooks the audience in with these fantastic, ethereal guitar licks and Veronica (Veronica Roman, our backing vocalist) and I try to evoke a similar sweetness with our vocals.

It’s a song I hope has a lot of replay value where someone could hear it one way, listen to it again, and then come away with a completely different perspective on the narrative of the song.”
