Indie trio Wild Rivers (Khalid Yassein, Devan Glover, and Andrew Oliver) have a gift for penning introspective lyrics and genre-fluid melodies that transmit wisdom beyond their years. Their anticipated full-length album, Sidelines—co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon van Etten) and Wild Rivers and recorded in Connecticut, Los Angeles and Khalid and Devan’s college town of Kingston, Ontario (where the two originally met and began making music together)—touches on coming-of-age themes and embracing the unknown. Sonically, Wild Rivers pull from a spectrum of sounds, imbuing pop, rock, indie, and folk into each song’s blueprint. “We all listen to a wide range of music, from hip-hop to indie rock to pop,” Devan says. “We like to pull our favorite parts of every genre and patch them together and see what works and see what feels good.”
HansWilliamsis a 21 year old independent singer-songwriter whose wistful, stirring alt-pop is infused with the mindscapes of his native Vermont. Often collaborating with his childhood friend,the producer Phin Choukas,Hanscontinues to experiment with indie, folk, and alternative sounds as a rising senior studying marketing at Tulane University. He is excited to share his development as an artist and an individual with each new release..
