About the event

Sharp storytelling. Gripping and gorgeous five-part  harmonies. Arrangements that can swing between fun, engaging, and lively  one moment and stirring, booming, and chill-inducing the next. These  are the essential elements that make up the sound of The Wilder Blue,  the Texas five-piece who put their own spin on rock-influenced country  with their eponymous sophomore album. Recorded at Echo Lab Studios in Denton, Texas, the band  self-produced The Wilder Blue with experienced engineer Matt Pence (Paul  Cauthen, Shakey Graves). A true collaborative effort, The Wilder Blue  is a genuine democracy where ideas, constructive criticism, and value is  demanded by all parties. Built around the keen storytelling voice of primary  frontman Zane Williams, Paul Eason’s salient lead guitar, the  imaginative tandem of drummer Lyndon Hughes and bassist Sean Rodriguez,  and the striking, compelling mind of multi-instrumentalist Andy Rogers,  The Wilder Blue are only beginning to scratch the surface of their  potential. Williams and Eason began toying with the idea of a new  band in 2019 by seeking out a nimble set of collaborators. Knowing that  they wanted to emphasize a rich vocal blend that could be replicated  live, they soon enlisted Hughes and Rogers. When Rodriguez joined, it  solidified the outfit as a cohesive unit. “Having studio time paid for by our fan subscribers gave  us the chance to relax and spread out a little,” explains Williams about  the recording process for The Wilder Blue. Recording over the course of  a few three-day sessions every few months allowed the band to  experiment in the studio while avoiding harsh deadlines or the demand of  cramming an album’s worth of material into a week’s worth of time.  Often recorded to tape, a vibrant tapestry of sonic swirls emerged
