Description

What happens when you throw a group of Nashville and Galax, Virginia, musicians who have never played together in a barn behind a farmhouse nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains? Musical magic.

That record is “Galax,” a tribute to the Southwest Virginia town and the nearby Blue Ridge Music Center, which is set for release Friday, Aug. 25, via Gearbox Records.

“I had spent a lot time playing on my grandfather’s farm and it’s just a beautiful place to spend some time,” Doug said in a recent phone interview. “We wanted to play with people who played with my grandfather and then get some people from Nashville to play as well. It just felt like something we needed to do.”

“We didn’t want to go home to Virginia and simply make an old-time record. We wanted to make a record that still sounded like Wild Ponies. An album that can exist in today’s world. We asked everybody to stretch themselves and reach towards something new, something different. We wanted to not only reconnect with our roots, but learn how those roots play a role in our current world.”

Telisha added, “We’ll always be the pinball that bounces between folk, rock and roll and country and this old-time style will always weave its way through everything we do. It’s been there from the start, even on the loudest songs we’ve made. It’s the album we’ve always been making. We just needed the right people and the right songs to finish it.”
