The Wild Feathers made their debut at the historic Ryman Auditorium to a sold out crowd of enthusiastic fans on Saturday night. The hallowed walls shook from the the energy generated from the band to the fans and back to the band again.
It is a sign that the time has come for the Wild Feathers to take their place among the the great Rock N Roll bands on the planet.
Ricky Young (guitar, vocals), Taylor Burns (guitar,vocals), Joel King (bass,vocals), and Ben Dumas (drums) have paid their dues touring world wide following their initial self titled album release in 2013. Now with their latest effort, “Lonely is a Lifetime” they display a seasoned maturity gained from these years. All this was on display at the show. Joined by Daniel Donato and Preston Wimberly on dueling lead guitars the Wild Feathers demonstrated they have what it takes to move into Rock's upper echelon, In a tribute to all those who have helped them along the way the final encore was appropriately a raging cover of “With a lil Help from my Friends” as they were joined by the opening act “Jamestown Revival”, Donato, and Wimberly.
