It's true. Portland has a lot of things going for it, geographically speaking. We're only a short drive from the Pacific Ocean, the high desert of Central Oregon, the Emerald City of Seattle is only a couple hours to the North... and we are firmly nestled in a rich valley, surrounded by deep deep forests and a charming culture. It's no surprise then, that Portland's musical talent reflects the landscapes around them. Great Wilderness collect samples of these rustic elements and put them into a neat folk package that fits in to the hillsides and river beds of the Pacific Northwest. Their harmony-rich sound brings to mind such bands as Mountain Man, Horse Feathers and Joanna Newsom. Great Wilderness recently released their EP called "Rest." We're stoked to have them on our team and available for licensing.
