July 19 2022 Concert Review - Music in the Grapevine Series  - Two Rivers Winery - Redlands CO.

 

"Loved the whole show from the Sade opener to "Whiskey Talking" closer. The sound and balance seemed just right. I enjoyed the new pieces 'Look at that Moon' and 'Raise Up Your Window' . The vocal leads and blends from Emily Jurick and Eric Gross were awesome. Instrumentally, the conga and traps, like the chimes, were very tasteful while still adding space Rob Labig (percussion). John Brown (bass) and Sofia Benham on (drums) were the usual consistent tight backbone while Eric  (keyboards) and Kellen Michael (guitar) had some great moments on leads. Kellen was smoking hot all night long. The venue is awesome and I believe the members of the Art Center Guild were very impressed, and rightfully so. You will be invited back. Way to go to the Wild Flight team. Dan Fielding Redlands CO.

 

March 20, 2022 - Club Show Review   Charlie Dwellington's (Grand Junction CO)

"Last night we attended the party celebrating the CD and music video release by Wild Flight. This is a local group that is pretty new on the scene here. It was a great night. The music was excellent. They performed several original pieces which were very good and they also did some covers. The covers weren't just rehashed versions of popular songs but imaginative rearrangements. "Ring of Fire" was refreshed and revitalized and I suspect Johnny Cash would have loved it. I would recommend that anyone who enjoys really good live music should keep an eye out for this group and go to one of their performances.

Spotify Curator  Reviews:

 

“Raise Up Your Window” Spotify Curator Reviews  July 2023

 

A catchy and elegant blues rock song. I love the way it progresses. The voice is catchy and it has a very good tone. The drums are varied and well mixed. Good job Wild Flight!

Sound Acer

I really appreciate the piano comping, the harmonic structure, the electric guitar phrases , the rhythmic disposition (amazing work on percussions) and the vocal.

Simone

“Great guitar melodies, a lot of feeling involved, great harmony and good instrumental and voice synchronism, which are super tuned and with a great interpretation and expression, good mixing and mastering, a work with great potential that will certainly cultivate new fans and listeners, good mixing and mastering! “

The Best of Rock  

“This song has a great rhythm and a super expressive guitar, I love the delay of the melodies because they give it a lot of personality and spatiality! the harmonic progression is simple but very nice, I think it's a hit.”

Rock Clasico en Ingles 

“What I like most about it is its remarkable uplifting and electrifying atmosphere. Your vocals are just perfectly interacting with the instrumentals and it all comes together in a very fine combination of all musical elements.”

Lienhard

“Great light rock sound –– reminds of Jacob Dylan & the Wallflowers. Well-produced and great prosody; vocals are also great and the right tone and timbre for this re-emerging pop-rock style. everything is working here, solid writing, production on point, excellent vocals. Fans of this genre will LOVE it and it IS a champion in the right space “

MT

 "Love the soothing and relaxing vibe of your record, the drums have an organic vibe and a bit jazzy,  I like the vocal, love the delivery and lyrics. Record has potential and I'm sure it will have success!"  TC21 Coppens
