"What Lachlan Bryan does is write some of the most insightful, poignant and heartfelt songs you’ll hear this or any other year…his band play with swagger, sensitivity and panache without ever thinking about overshadowing the lyric”
(Stuart Coupe - Author of Paul Kelly - The Man, The Music & The Life In-Between)
“He is one of Australia’s finest songwriters…and singers”
(Rob Dickens - Listening Through the Lens)
Lachlan Bryan and the Wildes are a genre-bending, critically acclaimed band from Melbourne. Their eclectic, literate records and live shows have gained them a cult following in Australia and The UK over the past decade. They’ve pioneered the Americana genre in Australia, playing alongside the greats such as Steve and Justin Townes Earle, Joe Pug, John Hiatt, Shawn Colvin and Joan Armatrading - as well as more contemporary acts like The North Mississippi Allstars and Lord Huron.
This year Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes released Nearest Misses, a live record that also served as a ‘best of’ their first decade as a band. The album debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country Charts and reached #38 across all genres.
Their fifth studio album, As Long as it's Not Us, comes out on September 17.
Dashville Skyline has a special evening prepared for the night before the festival featuring Lachlan Bryan, to preface the band's gig on one of the main stages. Put Lachlan Bryan and the Wildes on repeat to prepare!
