I didn't know too much about this Nashville band, Wild Feathers, until we started playing them here at Cities97 and I, instantly, fell in love. I was trying to think of how to describe them and while doing that I found a BRILLIANT description the band wrote themselves on their Facebook page........it might even be TOO descriptive. Haha, but it's awesome....
"They're like if Led Zeppelin & The Band had a baby in Joshua Tree that grew up listening to Ryan Adams covering the Stones 70's country influenced songs"
We must start with the "single"......this is the song we're playin on Cities (in case ya haven't heard it yet)......a great live performance and a hint of what tomorrow will sound like!
The second selection you should check out is a song called "Hard Times". This one is hand picked by my pal Brittany Holljes of Delta Rae. She's pretty awesome, so if she says it's good, then it MUST be. :)
I asked her why she loves this song so much, to which she responded, "I love the harmonies and the way they switch off lead (singers). It just sounds like a classic. I knew the words immediately, which to me makes a song pretty undeniable"
Turns out DR and Wild Feathers are good friends and have played together a ton.
Oh and how about some "bonus content".......proof they are, indeed, pals......Delta Rae and Wild Feathers teaming up on stage, doin Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain". (Remember, Wild Feathers at Sun Soaker's tomorrow and Delta Rae next week 7/4)
Ok, one last song from Wild Feathers. Dig this video, so no live stuff this time around......Check out "Hard Wind".....love the lighting, the landscape.....pretty visually stunning.
Sun Soaker Thursday - Maynard's - June 27th - Wild Feathers at 3:30 - Matt Hires at 5:00!
