With three voices, guitar, trombone, brushed percussion, and boundless effects, Living Hour’s live show maintains the dreamy, emotional power of the band’s recordings resulting in a mesmerizing, unforgettable, cathartic, and deeply moving live music experience. Living Hour’s music commands attention, washing over the listener with lush sounds and healing energy.
