Artists
Wild Rivers

Indie trio Wild Rivers effortlessly blend exquisite harmonies with impassioned songwriting and bring it all to life with a captivating live show. Their wistful new single “Amsterdam,” co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon van Etten) and Wild Rivers, offers a first taste of what listeners can expect from their anticipated full-length album, details forthcoming.

“’Amsterdam’ is the retelling of a friend’s breakup, who had big plans to move to Europe to be with her long-distance boyfriend,” explains co-lead vocalist and songwriter Khalid Yassein. “One day, out of nowhere, he called it all off over the phone. I imagined all the things she had been looking forward to, and I started writing a song from her perspective. Your early 20s are such a hard, transitional age. You’re coming out of your youth and strewn into the real world, and it’s sink or swim. Oftentimes, you make plans and envision this reality that doesn’t pan out as you expected, and that type of devastation felt like a really raw and relatable emotion that I wanted to draw from.”

Wild Rivers first caught attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by their acclaimed EPs, 2018’s Eighty-Eight and 2020’s Songs To Break Up To, which all combined have earned the band 200 Million streams. Having supported artists like The Paper Kites, Donovan Woods and Jake Bugg, Wild Rivers has built a dedicated live following thanks to their charismatic stage presence as evidenced by sold out headline shows across North America, including major cities like New York, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, Toronto and more.

Wild Rivers is Khalid Yassein [guitar, vocals, keys], Devan Glover [vocals, bass], and Andrew Oliver [lead guitar, bass].

Lindsey Lomis
Lindsey Lomis captures the spirit of a Gen Z teenager reaching from the past into the future. Her music is filled with undeniable hooks, dramatic drum fills, sparse electronic edges, and a vocal rootsiness. She is that rare pop treasure: a future superstar time-traveling through classic eras to land us firmly in the present. For Lomis, who is born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee and has been honing her craft from the age of nine, music is the place from where everything else in life began. In her songwriting process, Lomis calls the shots. Her newest single, “Feel”, is cross-genre and cutting-edge; a song about the drama of teenage friendships, veering toward the darker edges of adolescence. In real life, Lomis is the girl next door – approachable, warm, and optimistic. The talent beneath her veneer, however, is extraordinary. Her earthen cadence reminds one of a Maggie Rogers or a Hozier: a sophisticated soul bursting from a young perspective. She’s inspired by the possibilities of pop and the lack of pressure to fit into any box. She looks to powerhouses such as Tori Kelly and Adele as inspiration. After releasing her debut EP, Chapter I, in 2019, she signed with Altadena and Warner Records and has swiftly garnered an array of impressive fans, including Meghan Trainor, Alessia Cara, Allen Stone, Ryan Tedder, Lennon Stella, AJ Mitchell, Shawn Mendes, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas. She even garnered a shout out on one of Justin Bieber’s IG Lives. Her NYC opening slot for Bruno Major and sharing the stage with Brandi Carlile have been live highlights so far. Of her ambitions for her music’s impact, Lomis says, “When people come home from a long day, I want my songs to help them feel like they dropped the weight of the world off their shoulders.”
