TRIUMPH OF THE WILD TO RELEASE THEIR SOPHOMORE ALBUM “WE COME WITH THE DUST” APRIL 14, 2015!
Fueled by a five month trip with stops in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Tennessee, Triumph of the Wild found inspiration by immersing themselves in American musical history and culture, connecting with local talent, and honing their performances at every opportunity. Their return to San Diego was marked by festivals, shows, television appearances and two San Diego Music Award nominations culminating with a win for Best Local Recording. Closing the year, Triumph of the Wild finished writing a new record entitled We Come With The Dust which the duo was able to fully fund with a successful Kickstarter campaign by the support of their fans.
Triumph of the Wild’s backbone is firmly grounded as a one woman and one man band, highlighting the twin harmonies of Christy Barrett and Ryan Schilling. Both cite influences ranging from Woody Guthrie and Janis Joplin, with an occasional nod to Dylan or Lennon/McCartney. The duo manage to produce an impressively rich and full sound: Ryan mans the kick, harp, guitar and back-up vocals while Christy handles percussion, the kazoo and lead vocals that the San Diego Troubadour claims is a “powerhouse voice that goes from whiskey soaked wail to honey tones in a note.”
Triumph of the Wild’s forthcoming sophomore studio album We Come With The Dust will be available on CD and digital formats April 14th. National tour dates to be announced soon!
