Nascent understanding, quiet burgeoning desires, and the time in your life when everything seemed magical.

These are just a few of the experiences captured in Balmorhea's soulful collection of songs on Rivers Arms.

From the contented isolation of "The Winter" to the hazy heat and hopeful longing of "San Solomon," their music captures the indescribable feelings of living and growing in Texas.

Mirroring the vast Texas skies, Balmorhea's music is imbued with a visceral weight and endless space.

In April of 2007 Balmorhea self-released their debut, followed by live dates in Texas and a West Coast tour.

Their shows have included dates with The Drift, Bexar Bexar, One AM Radio, Caspian, and more.

Balmorhea is currently planning a Spring tour to coincide with this release and working on a Summer tour with their Italian friends Port-Royal.

The track "Baleen Morning" will be featured on an upcoming documentary about the company Toms Shoes, which will premier the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.

R. I. Y. L. Eluvium, Rachel's, Sigur Ros, Pullman, Max Richter. "It's such a breath of fresh air, then, to hear the unassuming acoustic sounds of Balmorhea" - Silent Ballet.
