Catching the spirit of pioneering roots artists like the Byrds, Gram Parsons and the Band, Southern California revivalists Wish and the Well released their award-winning debut, Darling, Darling, in January, 2017. Convening the sparse, elegant song structures of Americana with vibrant swaths of blues, soul and classic rock, the San Diego-based quintet have conjured a sound as arresting as it is weirdly beautiful. Guitarist and principal songwriter Corey Leal, draws deeply from a wide spectrum of influences, ranging from Son House to Sam Cooke to Hank Williams, synthesizing these timeless styles into a sound that pays homage to the past while bringing it squarely into the here and now.
