CD Review: The Wild Feathers Bring Us Their Brand Of Roots Rock

From Nashville, TN we get the self-titled debut album from The Wild Feathers. The album was released back in August through Warner Bros. Music and produced by Jay Joyce (The Wallflowers, Eric Church, Little Big Town). Their sound combines all the elements of classic rock from the seventies and eighties and puts a southern rock spin on it.
 
The album opens with the barn burning, up-tempo country-stomp of "Backwoods Country" as they add a little Led Zeppelin guitar flair to their sound. The southern funk of "I Can Have You" and the back-porch rock of "The Ceiling" sound as if The Wild Feathers injected a shot of adrenaline into today's country music. They attack their instruments on the Petty-esque feel of "I'm Alive" and carry laid-back seventies rock vibe on "If You Don't Love Me," before closing with the Americana-pop of "How."
 
The Wild Feathers are currently on tour in the Northeast, before continuing on along the U.S. Their tour runs to the end of November, so please visit thewildfeathers.com for a complete list of dates and for more information on their debut album.
