From William WildNo Albums Currently Available
William Wild began as a home recording project in the fall of 2012 for Knoxville-based singer-songwriter Garrett sale, who laid the cornerstone for what would become the band’s first full-length album in his bedroom while studying at the University of Tennessee. His folksy DIY endeavor, originally intended as a way to experiment with songwriting and sound production, unexpectedly took on a new spirit as the diverse cluster of songs began to unfold and reveal a vibrant personality of its own. With the help of long-time friends and fellow Knoxvile musicians Aaron Hill and John Knight, the three set up camp in Hill’s grandparents’ secluded lake house, which served as their personal home studio for the next 18 months as the trio fleshed out a full body of compositions.
William Wild’s inaugural release pays homage to the musical pioneers of the counterculture revolution with their uniquely dynamic synthesis of 1960s folk and 1970s rock ‘n’ roll. The group’s distinct blend of acoustic instrumentation, layered vocals, and lush strings, embellished by heavy percussion and dark guitar tones, draws comparisons to Crosby, Stills, & Nash, Led Zeppelin, and Fleetwood Mac.
