Wild Rivers is an indie folk quartet from Toronto, Canada. Born out of Devan Glover (vocals) and Khalid Yasseins (vocals, guitar) eponymous Kingston-based duo Devan & Khalid, Wild Rivers took on a life of its own with the addition of Ben Labenski (drums) and Andrew Oliver (bass, guitar) in 2015, carving out a name as one of Canadas most exciting young acts. With influences drawn from such iconic music legends as James Taylor and Fleetwood Mac, Wild Rivers captivates with the magnetism that only the chemistry of a male/female duo can produce. Melding a classic feel with their own refreshing spin, Wild Rivers manages to honour those that leave them inspired while producing songs that are uniquely meaningful, with contemporary pop appeal. Drawing comparisons to such modern acts as The Civil Wars and Houndmouth, Wild Rivers are forging a path through the Canadian folk scene and beyond, consistently packing venues and attaining new and loyal fans along the way. They released their self-titled debut album in April 2016, and it is available everywhere now!
