Although based in Nashville, Wild Ponies look to Southwest Virginia for inspiration. That’s where bandmates Doug & Telisha Williams were born and raised. There, in mountain towns like Galax, old-time American music continues to thrive, supported by a community of fiddlers, flat-pickers, and fans. They paid tribute to that powerful music and rugged landscape with their 2017 release, Galax, a stripped-back album that nods to the band’s history while still pushing forward. Maria Francis and Jeff Overbo define modern Americana with Silver Lake 66. They are an amalgamation of classic country, folk, and blues. The couple first began playing music together in the Midwest before relocating to SoCal and later Portland. Together, they perform outstanding roots-laden duets following in the footsteps of Americana greats from Lucinda Williams to The Civil Wars. The Huffington Post’s Randy Radic describes Silver Lake 66’s music as “elegant simplicity” and “the real McCoy.”
