Wildwood Kin


Wildwood Kin are an English contemporary family alt folk trio, composed of sisters Beth and Emillie Key and their cousin Meghann Loney, from ExeterDevon, England. They released their first album Turning Tides in August 2017

Before they officially formed as a band, Beth, Emillie, Meghann would harmonise to everything that was in earshot, from songs on the radio, TV jingles, adverts to even the doorbell. They soon found their signature style with Emillie playing guitar, Beth playing the [[bouzouki or keyboard, and Meghann playing the drums. They all join forces for harmonies and take turns on lead vocals. The band credit musical influences such as Simon & GarfunkelFleetwood Mac and James Taylor, as well as newer acts such as Mumford & SonsBen HowardFleet FoxesSigur Ros and The Civil Wars.

They played their first gig at an open mic night at Stokeinteignhead’s Church House Inn to around 60 people. This was where they caught the attention of their future management. Their career then developed quickly and in 2017 they released their debut album, Turning Tides, via Sony Music's imprint label Silvertone. The band spent much of 2017 touring playing a number of UK and European festivals over the summer, including an appearance with Seth Lakeman at Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park and on the BBC Music Introducing Stage at Glastonbury.

In 2018, they performed their single "Steady My Heart" on the one-off revival special of The Old Grey Whistle Test with Bob Harris.

In July, 2019 they announced their second, self-titled album, alongside lead single "Never Alone", written with and produced by Ed Harcourt.
