FEVER / SKY [Exclusive Orange Splater]
Fever and sky. For more than two decades, Bear Rinehart — road warrior, storyteller, and ever-evolving songwriter — has seen plenty of both.
He strikes a new balance between cathartic roots-rock and contemplative, cinematic moments with FEVER / SKY, his second album as Wilder Woods. Rinehart unveiled the solo project in 2019, releasing a self-titled debut record of nuanced neo-soul. FEVER / SKY covers different territory, with Rinehart refocusing his attention not upon the horizon ahead, but upon the road itself. Recorded with old friends and new collaborators, it’s a personal record about enjoying the modern moment, stacked high with soulful R&B textures, heartland hooks, and the willingness to chase the muse into unexplored places.
