When Cicada Rhythm hit the road in support of their 2015 debut, they were a homespun, stripped-down folk duo, armed with songs that mixed acoustic instruments and soft dynamics with the intimate charm of two harmonized voices. 

Three years later, bandmates Andrea DeMarcus and Dave Kirslis have upsized their sound considerably with their latest release, Everywhere I Go. Recorded in a string of studios across the southeast, it's a snapshot of a band on the move, with new members filling their lineup and a louder set of in- fluences propelling their sound forward. There are roots-rock tunes, slow waltzes, politically- minded lyrics, front-porch folksongs and backwoods ballads, all delivered by a group of road warriors who've cut their teeth not only in the writing room, but onstage, too.
