Will Mackie-Jenkins, a native of Virginia's Appalachian foothills, left the mountains for the urban sprawl of Chicago in 2013. Since then, he's melded the quiet mountain sounds that once surrounded him into his contemporary, crowded reality. His debut EP Cherries in Bloom tells a narrative of departure, grieving, and seasoned love over the course of its six songs. Folk rhythms of his native Virginia are refurbished, made unique, and combined with unusual lyricism that is often simultaneously haunting and sweet. Recorded in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, Cherries in Bloom has a curious urban sensibility to it–as if the speaker of the songs is reflecting upon a very different past life that can never be revisited, but must be made to have meaning.
