The Wild Reeds

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

8:00pm

The Wild Reeds can be defined by one word: Harmony. However, the music is nearly indefinable. The sound from this LA based band fronted by Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe and Sharon Silva dips in and out of multiple genres - some etherial folk, a hint of country twang and some rock and roll rhythm (from Nick Jones and Nick Phakpiseth), but it all comes back to the root of this band's power: the fact that Lee, Howe and Silva harmonize like triplets separated at birth. 

In the past year, the Los Angeles based band supported such acts as Noah Gundersen, Langhorne Slim, Della Mae, Spirit Family Reunion and Israel Nash and they've made appearances at Way Over Yonder Festival, The Bluegrass Situation Festival at the Greek in LA, Outside Lands, Echo Park Rising, Claremont Folk Festival, and Lightning in a Bottle.

The Wild Reeds released their formal debut album "Blind and Brave," in August 2014 at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. The album, produced by Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare Studios (Local Natives, Parson Redheads, Honey Honey, Dustbowl Revival), expounds on loss, love, growing up, and the experience of artists and workers alike pursuing their dreams. 

The start of 2016 finds The Wild Reeds crafting new material for their second release in Los Angeles, resting after full US tours in the fall with stops at the AMA Festival in Nashville in September, The Bluegrass Situation Festival at the Greek Theater in LA and the CMJ festival in New York in October, and gearing up for a busy year on the road.

Wild Wild Horses

Echoplex

1822 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 90026

8:30pm

Not all studio musicians were meant to stay in the booth.

Boasting a diverse set of musical backgrounds, the four members of Wild Wild Horses have collectively worked with almost every major indie-pop artist in the past half-a-decade. Yet, not content with staying behind-the-scenes, frontman Jack Edwards had a different vision—a vision to make his own name, out of the shadow of others.

Originally from Kent, England, Jack signed with LA-based Buskin Records in August 2014. As the sole founding member and songwriter, Jack returned to London to form his dream team. Finding studio musicians of a similar pedigree, Wild Wild Horses came to include Brit­ish-born Billy Adamson (Jess Glynne, Amy Winehouse) and Jonathan Harvey (Mika, Elle King) on bass, with the American Gregory Rogove (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Latin Grammy Winner) on percussions.

Named after the eponymous Rolling Stones song, Wild Wild Horses compose stirring alternative pop-rock tracks. With subtle electronic interjections mixing into the band’s powerful, catchy riffs, their music carries the vibrant beat of today while aspiring to the lofty heights of the classics.
