Lonely Is A Lifetime is the follow-up to the band’s 2013 self-titled debut. The Wild Feathers’ unique take on Modern American Rock ‘n’ Roll earned them critical praise from Rolling Stone, New York Times, Huffington Post, USA Today, and countless others. They have performed live on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Late Night with Seth Meyers and more.
Young, ambitious and indefatigable, The Wild Feathers performed well over 200 shows that year alone, including headlining dates, shows with Bob Dylan, Gary Clark Jr, and Willie Nelson plus appearances at most major music festivals, including Austin City Limits, Outside Lands, Bonnaroo, Voodoo, Summerfest, Firefly, Sasquatch, Hangout, and Squamish and have won the hearts of fans and critics everywhere and every time they play.
Guitarist/vocalist Ricky Young says that the story of Lonely Is A Lifetime begins with the band’s two years on the road. “We progressed as a live band,” he says. “When we wrote our first record, we knew what we liked, but we didn’t really know who we were yet. The more we toured and grew into ourselves, the more we started to naturally move towards what we are today — as individuals and musicians. After playing the same songs every night, you eventually start leaning towards other things. We wrote music that we wanted to play and that’s what you’ll hear on Lonely Is A Lifetime.”
Lonely Is A Lifetime was written in a cabin in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and in Barcelona, Spain and recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Wallflowers, Amos Lee) and mixed by Dave Sardy (Oasis, Band of Horses).
