The Lonely Wild is an indie-folk Americana L.A. band based in Los Angeles, CA.
With songs that blaze through the dusty American West, this quickly rising L.A. quintet (ready to release their LP “The Sun As It Comes”) is at a junction of sounds that both look back to songs of Ennio Moricone ( you may remember the old spaghetti Western movies) and forward to the raw rock tradition that has evolved from that.
They aren't a country band and they're not quite rock either. Here, at that space between, the aching voice of singer/guitarist Andrew Carroll coalesces with Jessi Williams' soaring vocals, while Andrew Schneider's guitar textures and Ryan Ross' keys create rich textures over Dave Farina's tumbling drums. Together, they make music both melancholy and hopeful, raucous and tender, in a singular and sincere sound that battles against this age of cynicism.
PS. Dave Farina is the son of our “Official Baker” Patrizia Farina. Let’s all go and support him, the band, and live music in general.
