Washington D.C.’s Wylder fuses indie-rock and chamber-folk that evokes a diverse set of comparisons from Arcade Fire and Weezer all the way to Fleet Foxes.
Formed by singer/guitarist Will McCarry in 2012, the group grew into its current iteration in 2016 and features Lonnie Southall (guitar/mandolin), Mike Pingley (drums), and Jackson Wright (bass/piano). Wylder’s debut album, Rain and Laura, was released in April of 2016, and was met with enthusiastic reviews from fans and critics alike. They are currently in the midst of recording their next full length album and were featured on the Rock Boat in early 2018 alongside Need to Breath, Barenaked Ladies and Sister Hazel among others.
Their new EP “Live at White Star Sound” is out now!
Keep up with Wylder
