The Wild Feathers
All signs point to The Wild Feathers becoming the next great American rock ‘n’ roll band. The Nashville-based group—Ricky Young [guitar, vocals], Taylor Burns [guitar, vocals], Joel King [bass, vocals], Preston Wimberly [guitar, vocals], and Ben Dumas [drums]—spent more than two years on the road supporting their 2013 self-titled full-length album alongside everybody from Bob Dylan to Gary Clark Jr. The record hit #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, and they received invites to appear on Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O Brien, Seth Meyers, Craig Ferguson, ABC’s Nashville, and more. Unanimous critical praise arrived courtesy of Rolling Stone, New York Times, Huffington Post, USA Today, and countless others. Along the way, evolution stayed on their minds as they started writing songs for what will become their 2016 sophomore effort, Lonely Is A Lifetime [Warner Bros. Records].
Lonely Is a Lifetime reflects a richer confluence of influences, while maintaining their signature soul and spirit and a nod to all that time on the road together. They’ve grown as men and musicians, and they’re ready to claim their spot in the canon of American rock music.
