“I’ve heard that wisdom comes from two things: traversing the peaks and valleys that surround falling in, being in and staying in love, as well as good ol’ fashioned experience, the repetitions and mistakes it takes to achieve excellence,” says Wilder Woods, “but I don’t think you can understand either love or experience unless you’re willing to take the first step out of the “comfortable” and dive head first into the unknown.”
With his brilliant self-titled debut, Wilder Woods, also known to many as Bear Rinehart, is doing precisely that. A timeless blend of classic soul, infectious R&B, and modern pop, the record captures the sound of a veteran songwriter confidently breaking new ground, blazing his own distinctive trail through uncharted territory with comfort and style. Simultaneously vulnerable and self-assured, the songs reflect both the rich well of experience from which they’re drawn and the bold leap that they represent, pairing intimate, introspective lyricism with effortless swagger and monster hooks. Wilder Woods is a new side of Rinehart, but one that he’s more than ready to share.
What would life look like if we strive to enjoy the journey as much as destination, the struggle as much the victory? What risks would we take if we could see our mistakes for the gifts that they really are?
In that respect, ‘Wilder Woods’ is as much about self-discovery as it is about leading by example, about daring you to be bold and take your own leap towards realizing your truest self. Think of these songs as little beacons of light, lanterns to help guide you on your passage into the unknown. As Toreau put it, “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Wilder Woods is proof of that.
