An eclectic blend of folk, rock and spacey noises, Wilderness creates a powerful connection between vintage guitars, twinkling keys, xylophones, layered horns, steady bass and drums. Based in Bend, Wilderness meets at the intersection of folk, pop and rock music, with an experimental streak that occasionally runs the stop sign. Band members include Bradley David Parsons, Nick Graham, Nora K.W. Smith and Jared Nelson Smith. Their first album, Homeward from the Battle, was released last year and features rollicking instrumentals and likeable hooks.
