New Music | Dan & The Wildfire - Backwash

Dan & The Wildfire

Boston’s roots-rock extraordinaire Dan & The Wildfire have been honing their unique blend of southern-folk-soul for a number of years now, and with their forthcoming third album, Bull Moose, set to be released this spring, the quintet’s hard work is making many a New Englander wish they were in Dixie. Especially in the middle of January!

Dan is Dan HL (Lead Vocals/Guitar) & The Wildfire are Thom Brennan (Trumpet/Vocals), Matt Hines (Keyboards/Vocals), Sam Katz (Bass/Vocals), and Kyle Jenkins (Drums/Vocals), and together the band has been gathering up praise from magazines and blogs on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line, including being nominated for New England Music Awards’ ‘Indie Act of the Year’ in 2013 and 2014.

The new single, “Backwash,” is perfectly crafted for washing away the winter doldrums and making you feel as though anytime is the right time for front porch whiskey drinking. Combining a New Orleans brass band sound with delta-blues guitar, the track does indeed “wash them troubles away.” You are going to play this song over and over again I Guarantee! (Note: Yes, you should read that in your mind just as Cajun-cuisine chef Justin Wilson would say it.)

The band will be promoting Bull Moose ferociously soon so be sure to keep up with them here on Music Savage as we will surely be keeping tabs on our local old-timey troubadours.
