About Wild Rivers:

“The more I see, the less I know about it.” It’s one of the first, most prominent lyrics on

Sidelines, the much-anticipated full-length album from indie trio Wild Rivers. The phrasing is

brief but says everything about adjusting to young adulthood — and beyond. The world places

infinite pressure on us to have a plan for the future, but, as Wild Rivers eloquently articulate

throughout Sidelines, it’s healthier to acknowledge — and even embrace — the not knowing.

Comprising Khalid Yassein [guitar, vocals, keys], Devan Glover [vocals], and Andrew Oliver

[lead guitar, synths], Toronto’s Wild Rivers have a gift for penning introspective lyrics and

genre-fluid melodies that transmit wisdom beyond their years. The 10-track Sidelines,

co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon van Etten) and Wild Rivers and

recorded in Connecticut, Los Angeles and Khalid and Devan’s college town of Kingston,

Ontario, touches on coming-of-age themes, such as learning how to be more present and

coming to terms with life’s unpredictability.

In many ways, the group’s own story is one about embracing the unknown. Born in Canada,

Khalid, who is half-Egyptian, and Devan, who spent her childhood in London, England before

returning to Canada, first connected at Queen’s University in Kingston in 2013. Starting out as

an acoustic singer-songwriter project, Khalid and Devan expanded their aesthetic to a more

full-bodied sound, adding multi-instrumentalist Andrew, who Khalid calls their “Swiss army


Together, right before their first show, the band decided on the name Wild Rivers “in a Subway

restaurant,” laughs Andrew. “Our friends were going to be there and there was a lot of pressure

on making a big reveal, just cause we had really left it to the last minute,” adds Devan. “There

wasn't too much thought put into it. We just were like, ‘okay, this sounds cool. I'm going to get a


A portrait of their early post-college years, Sidelines is where Wild Rivers poured their collective

impressions about merging into their mid-20s — a strange, liminal age where it’s easy to

romanticize childhood. Sidelines, according to Andrew, looks back longingly upon “the time

when you are truly present and you're not having this forward-thinking vision where you're

worried about the next thing.”

“A lot of [Sidelines] is about perspective and longing to be somewhere that you're not, or trying

to figure out how to get to a place that you want to be, whether it's physically, emotionally,” says

Devan. “I think we're all kind of struggling with our sense of identity, in the stage of life that we're


Sonically, Wild Rivers pull from a spectrum of sounds, imbuing pop, rock, indie, and folk into

each song’s blueprint. “We all listen to a wide range of music, from hip-hop to indie rock to pop,”

Devan says. “We like to pull our favorite parts of every genre and patch them together and see

what works and see what feels good.”

The contemplative, keys-driven “Long Time” digs into the divisions between head and heart,

telling a story about hearing from an ex for the first time in months. “It’s from the perspective of a

couple of years post-breakup,” says Khalid, whose gentle voice forms a perfect harmony with

Devan’s on the track. “You’re growing up / while I’m in a rut,” they sing together, neatly

encapsulating the insecurities most of us feel when faced with when an ex-lover comes back

into the picture.

Elsewhere, in a co-write with Nashville singer-songwriter Caitlyn Smith, “Neon Stars” is a

nostalgic, wistful acoustic ballad about young love. “Singing with Caitlyn was very surreal and

fun,” says Khalid. ““As a writer, she really excels at visual storytelling. There's just a lot of lines

that paint a very specific picture of the nostalgia that we're talking about.”

Meanwhile, the mid-tempo “Bedrock,” which settles in with easy drumbeats and smooth vocal

harmonies, considers the way hard times have a way of always showing up. “The song came

out of a period of depression,” says Khalid. “Even after you check all of the boxes, practice

mindfulness, drink eight glasses of water a day, it can still rear its ugly head. This is the moment

where you throw your hands up and give in to it. This song is like the catharsis that comes with

that feeling.”

The mood brightens on “Stubborn Heart,” which showcases a jangling, sing-along melody and

breezy rhythm. Written in the artistic community of Los Angeles’ Echo Park, where the trio

rented a house for a few months to write, "“Stubborn Heart is a moment of levity in the album,”

Khalid says. “It’s about trying to coax someone out of a fight, making jokes and making light of

things until you both get over it.”

Sidelines also captures Wild Rivers’ collective sense of humor, on the upbeat, crisply strummed

“Weatherman.” “I think we were joking about how being a weatherman is the chillest job ever,”

Devan reveals. “Because you could be wrong 90% of the time and you don't lose your job.”

“Your perception of a sure thing is rarely a sure thing,” adds Khalid. “It's more fruitful to just live

life in the moment and take everything as it goes. It's okay to be wrong.”

As they embark on the next chapter of their journey, Wild Rivers, who first caught audiences’

attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by two EPs (2018’s Eighty-Eight and 2020’s

Songs To Break Up To), are especially eager to take Sidelines on the road. The live setting is

where they originally cultivated a dedicated following and opening for celebrated acts like The

Paper Kites, Donovan Woods and Jake Bugg. Building an authentic relationship with fans, while

channeling classic singer-songwriters like James Taylor and Fleetwood Mac, has been vital to

Wild Rivers’ connection with audiences.

“We've been fan-facing rather than industry facing,” Khalid explains. “I think most of the success

we've had up to this point is because of that. Music fans find us.”

About Corey Harper

Listen | Watch Video

Based in Los Angeles, Corey Harper makes alternative pop/rock for sunny days, sad evenings, and all points in between. His newest release, Overcast, finds the Oregon native returning to his roots in Portland for a source of inspiration, creating a sound that bridges the gap between the music of his past — including breezy pop and West Coast blues — and its Millennial makeover.

"Sometimes, when you go through a rough spot in life, you need to go back to the beginning to rediscover, or discover for the first time, who you are," says Harper, who left the Pacific Northwest at 19 years old and relocated to Los Angeles.

Overcast isn't just about finding direction, though; it's about finding a unique sound, too. Raised on the guitar riffs and timeless songwriting of Fleetwood Mac and Jackson Browne, Harper initially came to L.A. as an Americana folk-rock musician. His 2016 debut saluted those organic influences, while 2019's Barely Put Together widened his approach.

A snapshot of a musician caught up in the rush of a creative growth spurt, Overcast represents a new high-water mark in an acclaimed career. These songs are his most personal to date, yet the issues they examine — strained bonds between loved ones; the mourning of friends who are no longer with us; the desire to live a life that's meaningful— are common. It's music for a brief season of bad weather…with a promise that sunnier days lay just behind the clouds.
