Wilder Woods is a talented singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, he released a music video for his “Light Shine In” single.

“For twenty years, I was completely blind to all of my fears. I’ve had a weight tearing it down with all of these years. I’m left with very few to care about except the ones I hold dear. And there ain’t nothing you can say to me to make the truth be more clear.” – lyrics

‘Light Shine In’ tells an interesting tale of a guy who sometimes wishes he was lost.

Apparently, he believes there’s nothing worse than being found, or knowing what you might find behind the dark corners that you walk around.

Even though things seem uncertain at times, he’s still optimistic about what the future holds.  

‘Light Shines In’ contains a moving storyline, stirring soul vocals, and spirited chorus. Also, the likable tune contains lush instrumentation flavored with contemporary soul, neo-gospel, and alternative-pop elements.

“‘Light Shine In’ is the first song on this record. And it acts as a sort of manifesto for what ‘Wilder Woods’ is all about. Recording the track was easily the most spontaneous experience I’ve ever had in the studio. It’s in your face, which was important to convey in the video. And will likely be the first song in the ‘Wilder Woods’ live set this fall as well.” – Wilder Woods

Wilder Woods is known to many as Bear Rinehart. He is the frontman and co-founder of GRAMMY® Award-nominated NEEDTOBREATHE.

‘Light Shine In’ is the lead single from his self-titled upcoming debut album, entitled, “Wilder Woods”.

Wilder Woods recorded his debut album at Layman Drug Company studios in East Nashville with producer Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, Gin Wigmore).

The anticipated project is backed by a top-shelf cohort of co-writers and supporting musicians including Austin Jenkins (Leon Bridges) and The Watson Twins. Also, Jesse Baylin, Trent Dabbs, Carson Cooley, Ian Fitchuk (Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris), and more.
