The Wild Hymns (York, PA) live at Pale Fire on Friday, June 15th.
A beautiful synthesis of neo-folk, pop, and Americana with elements of jazz, psychedelia and mellow rock and roll, The Wild Hymns are the original songs of singer/songwriter Megan Woodland Hewitt (née Donley) and her band with her husband, guitarist Jeff Hewitt (including bassist/vocalist Cindy David, keyboardist Rob Shuckle and various drummers). There is a tender sweetness to their sound as well as depth, mystery and an other-worldly quality; a blending of understated but wide-ranging, earnest and soulful female vocals with flowing and effortless guitar that evokes sounds from the folk-rock of the 60s as well as world, jazz and blues. The music and lyrics of The Wild Hymns are greatly influenced by human relationship, emotion, nature, and mysticism; they are reclaiming the word “hymn” as a song of praise to the natural world, the raw and wild human spirit, and universal/cosmic love.
The Wild Hymns have performed locally and regionally at venues such as Bethlehem Musikfest, Kable House Presents in York, Pa and Long’s Park Ampitheater in Lancaster, Pa and their music can can be heard on WXPN Philadelphia’s “Sleepy Hollow” and “Folk Show”. They released their second album of original music, This Burning Love, in November 2016 and are currently completing the recording of their third album of original music with plans to tour in 2018.
