Wild Feathers Performs At Songbirds May 16

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

The Wild Feathers will perform at Chattanooga's Songbirds on May 16 at 9 p.m. in support of their album, Greetings From the Neon Frontier. Tickets are $15 and $18 and available here

Review for The Wild Feathers:

After a year that included the launch of their new album, Greetings From the Neon Frontier, national television appearances and a tour with Brothers Osborne, The Wild Feathers are on the road for their headlining tour.

With brand new Greetings From the Neon Frontier tracks in tow, The Wild Feathers treat audiences to the “road music” that the Associated Press suggests “might make you step on the gas a little harder.”

The recently released project has earned praise from outlets including the Rolling Stone, Parade and CMT, who say, “The Wild Feathers have returned triumphant and glorious.”

As B-Sides and Badlands explained, “From beginning to end, Greetings from the Neon Frontier feels like a special, perhaps barrier-shattering, moment for the band. It’s whittled with heart and grit and is never so throwback you get lost in time. It’s woven with great care, and every syllable, guitar lick, drum pitter-patter is wrought with the purpose of moving the listener to feel something.”
