Wild Rivers

With exquisite harmonies, gorgeous melodies and emotionally charged, tightly crafted lyrics, Wild Rivers deliver their unique blend of folk-pop songs that are at once inviting and infectious. Their sound is an amalgamation of their various influences, from contemporaries like The Lumineers, Bahamas and Kacey Musgraves to the iconic storytellers of the 70s, like James Taylor, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac. With over 73 million streams and counting, the Toronto four-piece has earned a dedicated live following thanks to their captivating stage presence.

Following the success of their 2018 EP Eighty-Eight, which received praise from the likes of Rolling Stone Country, PopMatters, Earmilk and No Depression, Wild Rivers is set to release their new EP Songs To Break Up To in May 2020. On Songs To Break Up To, the band transpose personal experiences into relatable anthems woven from strands of folk, indie, rock, pop, country, and beyond. For its recording, they retreated to Nashville in late 2019, where they worked with producer Skylar Wilson (Rayland Baxter; Justin Townes Earle; Joshua Hedley) to expand their sonic palette by further incorporating synths, guitar effects, gang vocals, and choral harmonies. 

Wild Rivers is Khalid Yassein (vocals, guitar), Devan Glover (vocals), Andrew Oliver (guitar, bass) and Julien Laferriere (drums).
