    Wild Rivers

    Folk

    Wild Rivers effortlessly blend exquisite harmonies with impassioned songwriting and
    bring it all to life with a captivating live show. The band is currently working on their next
    full-length album, but in the meantime, they are starting 2021 with a soul-stirring new
    single called “Love Gone Wrong,” which continues the theme of their acclaimed 2020
    EP, Songs To Break Up To [Nettwerk].

    On “Love Gone Wrong,” rich male/female harmonies bring the emotional lyrics to life as
    they explore the pain of a relationship ending. With the band home in Toronto due to the
    pandemic, “Love Gone Wrong” was produced remotely from Los Angeles by Christian
    “Leggy” Langdon (Meg Myers, Banks, Amos Lee) and mastered by Grammy-winning
    engineer Emily Lazar (Beck, Vampire Weekend, Dolly Parton).

    “’Love Gone Wrong’ is about the paradox of being in a relationship,” explains co-lead
    vocalist and songwriter Khalid Yassein. “When it’s over, you’re left wondering whether
    the best moments are worth the unavoidable heartache and pain. There are all these
    contradictions that come to mind for when something good goes south... Laughing ‘til
    you can’t breathe, tripping on your own feet, dancing to a heart break song. All of it feels
    like a shame, like love gone wrong.”

    Wild Rivers first caught attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by their
    acclaimed EPs, 2018’s Eighty-Eight and 2020’s Songs To Break Up To, which all
    combined have earned the band 200 Million streams. Having supported artists like The
    Paper Kites, Donovan Woods and Jake Bugg, Wild Rivers has built a dedicated live
    following thanks to their charismatic stage presence. After spending the majority of 2019
    on the road, highlighted by 150-plus shows to packed audiences across North America,
    Wild Rivers retreated to Nashville to record Songs To Break Up To, 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. Inspired by Yassein facing the dissolution of a long-term
    relationship, the result is a striking six-song EP that transposes personal experiences
    into relatable anthems woven from strands of folk, indie, rock, pop, country, and
    beyond.

    They followed the EP’s release with a heartfelt and inspiring video for single “Thinking
    ‘Bout Love” featuring Voices of Our City Choir, the San Diego-based non-profit
    organization created in response to the current housing crisis. The band had previously
    announced plans to donate $1 from each ticket sold to their 2020 tour to the
    organization; their global “Where We Left Off” tour, which included sold-out dates and
    upgraded venues, was postponed due to Covid-19.

    The band closed 2020 with “Live From Lockdown,” bringing their soulful live show to
    computer screens around the globe for a virtual concert experience benefiting Bring
    Change to Mind (US) and Jack.org (Canada) – two organizations working primarily with
    youth to end the stigma around mental illness and make sure they have the tools they
    need to look after their mental health.

    Wild Rivers is Khalid Yassein [guitar, vocals, keys], Devan Glover [vocals, bass], and
    Andrew Oliver [lead guitar, bass]. Stay tuned for more news from Wild Rivers.

    Old Sea Brigade

    Alternative

    The music of Old Sea Brigade remains rooted in Americana, indie, country, rock, and ambient soundscapes, it blurs and breaks barriers, tossing and turning between analog cinematic flourishes and provocative lyricism based on hard-won wisdom. Amidst this mélange of textures, Atlanta-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cramer allows the emotion to resound loudest on his full-length debut, Ode To A Friend [Nettwerk Jan 2019].

    Since first emerging in 2015 Ben has been feverishly writing, releasing and hitting the road on multiple continents. Soon after establishing Old Sea Brigade he teamed up with producer Jeremy Griffith to record Old Sea Brigade’s self-titled debut EP. The single “Love Brought Weight” caught fire, generating over 20 million Spotify streams. In the meantime, he inked a deal with NETTWERK after founder Terry McBride personally reached out on Facebook.

    Between touring alongside Tall Heights, Joseph, Luke SitalSingh, Lewis Watson, Julien Baker, John PaulWhite and more, and appearing at UK festivals such as Cambridge Folk and Camp Bestival, he released 2017’s Cover My Own EP. The lead single “Tidal Wave” quickly crossed the two-million-mark on Spotify as acclaim came from WNYC, Clash, Indie Obsessive, Immersive Atlanta, KEXP, BBC Radio 1 and many others.
