Wild Rivers






Wild Rivers effortlessly blend exquisite harmonies with impassioned songwriting and

bring it all to life with a captivating live show. The band is currently working on their next

full-length album, but in the meantime, they are starting 2021 with a soul-stirring new

single called “Love Gone Wrong,” which continues the theme of their acclaimed 2020

EP, Songs To Break Up To [Nettwerk].

On “Love Gone Wrong,” rich male/female harmonies bring the emotional lyrics to life as

they explore the pain of a relationship ending. With the band home in Toronto due to the

pandemic, “Love Gone Wrong” was produced remotely from Los Angeles by Christian

“Leggy” Langdon (Meg Myers, Banks, Amos Lee) and mastered by Grammy-winning

engineer Emily Lazar (Beck, Vampire Weekend, Dolly Parton).

“’Love Gone Wrong’ is about the paradox of being in a relationship,” explains co-lead

vocalist and songwriter Khalid Yassein. “When it’s over, you’re left wondering whether

the best moments are worth the unavoidable heartache and pain. There are all these

contradictions that come to mind for when something good goes south… Laughing ‘til

you can’t breathe, tripping on your own feet, dancing to a heart break song. All of it feels

like a shame, like love gone wrong.”

Wild Rivers first caught attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by their

acclaimed EPs, 2018’s Eighty-Eight and 2020’s Songs To Break Up To , which all

combined have earned the band 200 Million streams. Having supported artists like The

Paper Kites, Donovan Woods and Jake Bugg, Wild Rivers has built a dedicated live

following thanks to their charismatic stage presence. After spending the majority of 2019

on the road, highlighted by 150-plus shows to packed audiences across North America,

Wild Rivers retreated to Nashville to record Songs To Break Up To , where they worked

with producer Skylar Wilson (Rayland Baxter; Justin Townes Earle; Joshua Hedley) to

expand their sonic palette by further incorporating synths, guitar effects, gang vocals,

and choral harmonies. Inspired by Yassein facing the dissolution of a long-term

relationship, the result is a striking six-song EP that transposes personal experiences

into relatable anthems woven from strands of folk, indie, rock, pop, country, and


They followed the EP’s release with a heartfelt and inspiring video for single “Thinking

‘Bout Love” featuring Voices of Our City Choir, the San Diego-based non-profit

organization created in response to the current housing crisis. The band had previously

announced plans to donate $1 from each ticket sold to their 2020 tour to the

organization; their global “Where We Left Off” tour, which included sold-out dates and

upgraded venues, was postponed due to Covid-19.

The band closed 2020 with “Live From Lockdown,” bringing their soulful live show to

computer screens around the globe for a virtual concert experience benefiting Bring

Change to Mind (US) and (Canada) – two organizations working primarily with

youth to end the stigma around mental illness and make sure they have the tools they

need to look after their mental health.

Wild Rivers is Khalid Yassein [guitar, vocals, keys], Devan Glover [vocals, bass], and

Andrew Oliver [lead guitar, bass]. Stay tuned for more news from Wild Rivers.
