Listen to Benjamin Josif, Robert Pope’s ‘River Run’ from Sweet Magnolias, Season 2, Ep. 1

Benjamin Josif and Robert Pope’s ‘River Run‘ showed up on Sweet Magnolias this week — Sweet Magnolias, Season 2, Episode 1, “Casseroles and Casualties“.

The track was played as Kyle is in his bedroom, angry and upset about breaking his arm.

Benjamin Josif and Robert Pope’s ‘River Run‘ is from the pair’s five-track Shackles & Chains EP.

The EP was released in 2019 via Extreme Music.

Unfortunately, there is little information about either musician on the Internet (honestly, I don’t understand musicians that don’t promote themselves online as they lose so many potential fans that way, but there ya go) so, sadly, that is all I can tell you about them.

Other than that ‘River Run‘ is a very cool guitar-driven folk song that stands out even more due to Josif’s gorgeously gravely vocals.

Listen to Benjamin Josif and Robert Pope’s ‘River Run‘ as heard on the first episode of the new season of Sweet Magnolias, on their Shackles & Chains EP and in the video.

Sweet Magnolias stars  JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Brooke Elliott, Heather Headley and Jamie Lynn Spears. It follows the trials and tribulations of three women in South Carolina.

The second season of the romantic drama is currently so popular, it is very likely Netflix will renew it for a third season.

You can watch Sweet Magnolias on Netflix.
