Dave Wilson (guitar, lead vocals) Chandler Hold (banjo), John Teer (mandolin, fiddle) and Greg Readling (bass) have taken control of the production reins and self-produced this their fifth studio album, the single mic harmonising is still very much in favour and there’s no sudden plug-in either – but with this release the band take a step further away from the traditional bluegrass mantra, in come the drums, a more Americana sound takes shape, not a revolution but an evolution that will doubtless gain this talented bunch some new fans.
The opening and album title track Wildwood is a perfect introduction to the North Carolina band’s latest album.
