About Wild Rivers
Canadian combo Wild Rivers blend the sweet harmonies of singers Devan Glover and Khalid Yassein with a relaxed, earthy folk-rock tone that takes cues from both contemporary indie folk and classic acts of the early-'70s singer/songwriter era on releases like 2018's Eighty-Eight and 2020's Songs to Break Up To.
Based in Toronto, the band grew out of the creative partnership of Glover (vocals) and Yassein (vocals, guitar), who soon added lead guitarist Andrew Oliver and drummer Julien Laferriere to the mix. Under the Wild Rivers name, the quartet issued a self-titled album in 2016 that subsequently racked up millions of plays on the major streaming platforms. The group toured hard and issued their acclaimed 2018 EP Eighty-Eight, whose five tracks were recorded between Nashville and Ontario. Arriving on Nettwerk in 2020, the Nashville-recorded Songs to Break Up To EP blended synths and effects into their palette.
