“Because not every band from Akron sounds like the Black Keys. Some, in fact, sound like a female-led Decemberists.” – Esquire Magazine Quotes from reviews of our new album, “The Reunion.” The Ohio based sextet brings a folk-driven roots rock mix that’s conjured comparisons to The Decemberists among others, but the end result on The Reunion is undoubtedly original. -Stereo Subversion The Reunion does not disappoint. Wrought with emotion, percussion, and energy, The Reunion does what good music does: it takes us somewhere painful, celebratory, and joyous at once. It hurts so good. Shanna’s voice sails in and out of swelling, harmonious sound with haunting, gripping, heart-aching lyrics The Reunion is spiritual, momentous, and just the kind of music that good springs and summers are made of. -Brian&Ash The Reunion features folk-rock – some leaning more acoustic, some featuring jangly electric guitar – but all of it featuring the soaring voice of lead singer Shanna Delaney. -When You Motor Away The Reunion is an easy listen while still challenging the audience, an intricately crafted record that blends elements of folk and Americana to create something fresh. Bethesda makes music that stands out because they refuse to take the easy way out. -KSUBuzz The Reunion is a big next step for their sound. With lush arrangements and no two tracks sounding the same, they’ve managed to expand their sonic landscape, while maintaining the essence of their sound -Cellar Door [A]n n album that can sit comfortably and confidently next to any of the current crop of Mumfords and Avetts. -Cleveland Plain Dealer It just about knocks you over with what feels like a call to arms reminiscent to traditional folk music, with a bit of a modern indie edge. -Akron Empire Bethesda’s lead singer and frontwoman Shanna Delaney reels you in slowly with sweet, clear, direct vocals that make you feel like she’s sharing her secrets with you. -Cool Cleveland
