The Harrisonburg-based alt-country duo Dogwood Tales came by In Your Ear studios in Richmond to play a live set for an audience during Member Appreciation Week at WNRN. Kyle Grim and Ben Ryan, the group’s founders, shared some new songs that were written and recorded throughout the duration of the pandemic.

“25” mourns the death of a close friend at a young age, while still wanting to be grateful for the gift of life. “I just wanna wake up and feel like I’m alive / Cause I’ve got some cousins that didn’t see 25.”

Dogwood Tales’ latest self-titled EP is out now on WarHen Records, and they’ve got another EP coming out this fall. You can listen to and watch their full In Studio Session at the link below.
