These Wild PlainsNYC 2015 / Video
If you closed your eyes and listened to These Wild Plains you would never, in a million years, expect this sound to come from a Boston band. And that’s when you realize the songs, the music and the feeling are a gift – and you never, ever know when life will surprise you. This is a group with boundless country rock charisma. “Hit repeat on this session and let it all sink in. The more I hear this band play, the more I slip away into another geography,” says Outlaw founder Ryan Spaulding. “These Wild Plains are making scene-setting music.” It was only a year after the band played their first live show to a sold out Great Scott in Allston, MA, that Esquire Magazine featured them in their 15 Bands to Watch List last year. They’ve been busy since on the live front as go-to support in Boston for national touring bands like The Whigs, Futurebirds and A Rocket To The Moon. They’ve made the most of those opportunities nad have earned some fantastic looks from festivals and shows around the country: Mile of Music (Appleton, WI), SXSW (Austin, TX), The Outlaw Roadshow in New York and just announced: Stagecoach 2016 (Indio, CA) in the Spring.
