The guitar riff is outstanding, clean, and organic, and the bright guitar tone is nothing short of fantastic. The song features subtle harmonies that add depth and dimension to Kelley’s heartfelt vocals. The music is a blend of artists like Of Monsters and Men, The Lumineers, Wilco, and Damien Rice, making it a great alternative acoustic folk song.
Despite its minimalist approach, the song has a very elaborate sound. Essentially a ballad, the three-four time signature, and the galloping arrangement give it an active rhythmic feel. The song’s themes are existentialism, love, and life, and Kelley’s lyrics are delivered with deep sincerity and emotion.
What makes “The Higher Road” stand out is the way it seamlessly blends Americana and alt-folk influences into a cohesive whole. The song is a testament to Kelley’s talent as a musician and a storyteller. If you’re a fan of acoustic folk music, this song is a must-listen.
