Concrete Prairie: Picking Up Pieces

Concrete Prairie

There is no such thing as the Great Wide Open in England, but there are lots of houses and other constructions, so naming your roots quintet Concrete Prairie Sounds makes perfect sense. Their new single Picking Up Pieces is a transatlantic hybrid of Americana and homegrown folk.

Lead singer Joe Faulkner wrote the song for his daughter, urging her to keep her head up, even when things break down and life is in full-on shit mode. Being a father, he wants to keep her safe and keep her out of harm's way. Failing that, this song will surely make her - and anybody else who listens to it - feel a whole lot better.

Picking Up Pieces is a track from their self-titled debut album, which will be released via Good Deeds Music on September 2.
