Biography

The Dead Wild is the full band evolution of Dawson City’s own Die Wild.  Guitarist James Healey (Honey Tree Evil Eyes), bassist Alex Halbom (Fixer Uppers), and drummer James Brown, put flesh to the bones of compositions by singer song writer Blair Douglas (Die Wild).  With elements of blues, rockabilly, country and psych rock, The Dead Wild bring volume and depth to the folk country songs written by Douglas.  Loud and fast, The Dead Wild deliver catchy hooks, heavy arrangements and soulful leads that transform pretty folk songs into dark country bangers.  Douglas takes a stream-of-consciousness to his music, often composing and writing the songs as he is recording them. This raw, spontaneous, and cathartic style comes through powerfully in The Dead Wild’s music and provides an unmatched intimacy that draws the listener in.  With heart aching laments The Dead Wild issue a howl and put forth a sweaty effort to move audiences.  Bring your dancing shoes.
