Wild Rivers, the group effort fusing indie, pop and folk released their full length album “Sidelines” on Friday. Sonically oceanic, the album washes over us with a soulful riptide, while melancholy chords and emotive vocals project a vastness and detail the uncertainty of tomorrow. An album for a drive, or a jog…Wild Rivers lets loose.
How did you guys meet?
In college, through friends.
Your favorite touring snack?
Andrew says NOT corn nuts, but he buys them at every gas station only to remember he hates them. His real answer is hummus and pita!

Your fondest touring experience?
Devan…Playing the Troubadour (Hollywood, California) during our 2021 fall tour. It’s a venue we had always aimed to play because of its legendary history. My dad’s favorite artist growing up was Elton John, so he had taught me all the Troubadour lore. It ended up being just as special an experience as we all imagined it would be.
Andrew…Traveling the world with my homies.
Your favorite movie?
Devan…Harry Potter, and Good Will Hunting
A song that you guys would play on repeat?
Devan…I’ll never get sick of ‘Pink and White’ by Frank Ocean or ‘Me and My Dog’ by Boygenius.
