There is so much to like about this album and band, rambunctious and thoroughly addicting good ol' jug band rock and roll. The San Diego-based Triumph of the Wild, a roots rock duo consisting of Christy Barrett and Ryan Schilling have a bond you can feel that holds each song together as tight as gorilla glue.
Barrett's vocal delivery is powerful and vibrant while Ryan's guitar, harmonica and harmonies compliment it note for note, the result is unabashed enthusiasm for the music they make. These are songs for wanderers, travelers, and road warriors whether figuratively or literally and definitely essential listening.
Fueled by a five month trip with stops in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Tennessee, Triumph of the Wild found inspiration by immersing themselves in American musical history and culture, connecting with local talent, and honing their performances at every opportunity. Their return to San Diego was marked by festivals, shows, television appearances and two San Diego Music Award nominations culminating with a win for Best Local Recording. Closing the year, Triumph of the Wild finished writing a new record entitled We Come With The Dust which the duo was able to fully fund with a successful Kickstarter campaign by the support of their fans.
