The songwriter is now taking listeners on his humbling journey of facing life’s challenges with the new song “Better Man”.
Sometimes, when life knocks you off your balance, you write a song about it. For Peri El, it happened enough times out of the blue that she ended up naming her debut EP based on the phenomenon. Based in Boston, originally from Baltimore, Peri pairs her powerful voice with her unique compositions and arrangements in her upcoming Shades of Blue EP. With this release and an upcoming tour to support it, Peri is poised for big things in 2020.
An arresting confluence of soaring melodies, lush harmonies, and driving indie rock, the ep is the band’s most collaborative work yet, bearing the distinctive writing influence and unique sonic sensibilities of all four members (lead singer/guitarist Max Rainer, bassist/vocalist Colton Dearing, guitarist/vocalist Tyler Wimpee, and drummer Justin Kila). recorded with production mastermind Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), ‘favors’ marks the dawn of a new era for Tulsa rockers Wilderado, as their already-epic sound pushes into more nuanced and mature territory than ever before.
