Spirit Family Reunion “One Way Ticket” -The Lull of a Train

With a heavy back beat and uplifting vocals, this song finds a way to be both passionate and carefree at the same time. Sounding as if they mixed the music of Modest Mouse’s “Bukowski” (but in major) and the vocals of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ “Home”, this folky tune is one that will speak to a variety of listeners. The consistent beat is like the lull of a train, while the lyrics paint an optimistic picture of wandering and persevering, despite what life may throw at you. When added with a beautifully drawn lyric video, the song takes on another level of serene as we watch the words pass through an ever changing landscape of mountains and trees, all drawn in black ink. Check out this tranquil folk track and alluring music video below.


Spirit Family Reunion began singing together on the street corners of New York City in 2009. Since that time they have travelled the highways of America delivering raw, high energy, honest music. They have shared the stage with musical heroes such as Pete Seeger and Levon Helm, and have given notable performances at festivals including Stage Coach, Austin City Limits, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and the legendary Newport Folk Festival three times.

The band has self-produced and self-released two full-length studio albums – “No Separation” (2012) and “Hands Together” (2015) – along with multiple songbooks and other collections of recordings.
