Bustin’ down the fences between country, bluegrass, folk and acoustic rock
Texas-based outfit The Wilder Blue travels the borderland between musical genres, busting down the fences that separate country, bluegrass, folk and acoustic rock. Primary front man and songwriter, Zane Williams, was already a well-established solo act with a loyal fan base and seven albums under his belt when he reached out to fellow Texas troubadour, Paul Eason, about starting a band. Paul had three solo albums of his own, not to mention a coveted side-man position playing lead guitar for Texas legend Kevin Fowler, but was immediately intrigued by the project. Houston-based drummer, Lyndon Hughes, was the next to hop on board, bringing his passion for group vocals and extensive engineering and producing experience working with artists like Cody Johnson, Sundance Head, Roger Creager and David Grace. A jam session at a demo studio brought them all together with multi-instrumentalist and singer, Andy Rogers, on banjo, dobro, mandolin and guitar, and the chemistry was immediate. Eventually the band’s unique vocal blend crystallized with the addition of Austin’s own Sean Rodriguez on bass and vocals. Recorded in Austin and Houston over a period of 11 months, their debut album, Hill Country, takes listeners on a sprawling journey through 12 original songs arranged, produced and performed by the band members themselves.
