For all of its gravity and fame, it's not easy to burst out of Nashville's local music scene, but that's just what The Wild Feathers have done. They have proved themselves by opening for some of the biggest acts in music, Gary Clark Jr. and Bob Dylan, and by spending the majority of their time on the road. At this point, the road has become their home.
Their sophomore album, Lonely is a Lifetime, shows just how much influence the road has had on the band. Each track seems as if it's from another stop along a journey to a never-ending string of "next concerts." The ride has taken them as far as Barcelona, and each destination has made a mark on their music. Not that you're gonna hear Spanish guitars or find lyrics about Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, but each stop on the tour has affected the band and their approach.
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann sat down with Ben Dumas, the group's drummer, at Warner Brothers HQ to discuss the band's many influences, their life on the road, and what it's like opening for a living legend.
