"Backwater Opera [is] a group that stitches the sound of bluegrass music into a classical indie-rock tapestry. It's an aesthetic the band calls 'chambergrass...With songs ranging from sorrowful to blisteringly introspective, and vocal harmonies sweet enough to melt even the harshest capital pacific northwest ice, this band is one to keep in mind and on the playlist." -Eugene Weekly ... more

Track Name: Look Up (Bellemansion Version)
Look up, look up,
You can run free.
Jump across, jump across,
You can fly free.
Let yourself live, let your self give,
Let yourself go.

You can, you can
Just know they can't catch you.
You're out, you're about,
you can be you.
Jump and jive, let yourself thrive
through these tough times.

No, Hard times can't bring us down.
Hard times can't reach us now.
We're alright, we soar.
Keep flying, keep trying, alright.

If I could jump so high
as to touch the sky,
do you think that you'd try
to jump so high
as to touch the sky?
Do you think that you'd try?
Oh please promise me you'll try.
