Wild Pink’s warm, reflective indie rock tunes follow the soft-spoken lead of singer and songwriter John Ross. The group delivered their eponymous full-length debut in 2017. Their more expansive third album, 2021′s A Billion Little Lights, enlisted help from session musicians and Grammy-winning engineer David Greenbaum.
Ross formed Wild Pink in New York with bassist T.C. Brownell and drummer Dan Keegan. After sharing a two-track release, they made their label debut with the EP Good Life on Texas Is Funny Records in June 2015. That led to a record deal with Tiny Engines, which issued the EP 4 Songs in 2016. The band’s debut album, Wild Pink, arrived on Tiny Engines in early 2017.
They co-produced their next album with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh). The resulting Yolk in the Fur came out in mid-2018. March 2019′s 5 Songs was their final release with Tiny Engines. The trio’s more ambitious third album, A Billion Little Lights, was produced, mixed, and co-engineered by David Greenbaum (Beck, Jenny Lewis) and involved the participation of various friends and session musicians. Arriving in early 2021, it marked Wild Pink’s debut for Royal Mountain Records. ~ Marcy Donelson
