River City Extension is a band out of New Jersey, that is quickly picking up a following. Formed in 2007, by singer/songwriter Joe Michelini, it took awhile for River City Extension to get noticed. However, extensive touring started to pay off over the course of the last year. 2010 saw the release of the band's first full length album The Unmistakable Man. My first thought was that they have a similar sound to a band like O.A.R. After listening further, I think Michelini's lyrical style can be compared to The Avett Brothers. Regardless, of comparisons to other bands, River City Extension appears to be on the upswing in the music world.
Here's River City Extension performing "South For The Winter" from their album The Unmistakable Man.
River City Extension will be performing at next week's Bonnaroo Music Festival. For more tour dates and information check out their website.
