TheWildesThe saviours of country music, The Wildes, return to Sydney for a once off show with Dear Orphans at The Orphanage Sessions at Mars Hill Cafe this Saturday 19th September.

Bursting on to the Australian country music scene earlier this year, The Wildes have reset expectations of country music with their Johny Cash meets Nick Cave songs. Spurning the polished, over-produced sounds coming out of Nashville, these guys return to the roots of country music with songs suited to outlaws rather than the mainstream. Their debut album Ballad of a Young Married Man has made an impression on all sorts of listeners with rave reviews making comments such as:

… this is thinking man’s, story telling country music, the kind that seeps into your bones and stays there, making your feet tap hours after you’ve finished listening – Sam Fell, Inpress Music.

Not only is this a good album, this is a great album, in fact one of the best albums of the year. There is so much to love about this album that goes far and above what you would normally expect from a country albumDavid Griffiths, Media Search.

The Wildes will join Dear Orphans on stage at their monthly residency called The Orphanage Sessions. The Orphanage Sessions are a once a month showcase of country/roots music at The Mars Hill Cafe, 331 Church Street, Parramatta NSW. – one of Sydney’s most intimate venues. $15.00 entry.
