Wild Rivers

Toronto, ON

Indie trio Wild Rivers have a gift for penning introspective lyrics and genre-fluid melodies that transmit wisdom beyond their years.

Wild Rivers first caught audiences’ attention with their expertly crafted harmonies, melodic sensibilities and tight chemistry on their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by two EPs (2018’s Eighty-Eight and 2020’s Songs To Break Up To). Their sophomore album, Sidelines – co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon van Etten) – captured the band as they navigated their twenties, moving from the college years into the uncharted territories of adulthood. The group’s own story is one about embracing the unknown. Born in Canada, Khalid Yassein, who is half-Egyptian, and Devan Glover, who spent her childhood in London, England, before returning to Canada, first connected at Queen’s University in Kingston in 2013. Starting out as an acoustic singer-songwriter project, they expanded to a more full-bodied sound, adding multi-instrumentalist Andrew Oliver. Sonically, Wild Rivers pull from a spectrum of sounds, imbuing mellifluous pop-flavoured hooks, rock, indie and folk into each song’s blueprint.
