Preferred method of communication:text or email
Wild Ponies (Doug and Telisha Williams) offer dead right, honest songwriting delivered in a hauntingly beautiful yet gritty, neo-traditional Americana wrapper. Released August 25th 2017 on Gearbox Records, Galax salutes Wild Ponies' traditional roots while exploring new, progressive territory. It's an album about the pieces of our past that stick with us, informing our present while pushing us toward a future. An album about a town, a country, and a world that's forever spinning toward something new. An album that redefines Wild Ponies' sound, while highlighting influences that have always rested just beneath the surface.
"We'll always be the pinball that bounces between folk, rock & roll and country," says Telisha, “and this Old-Time style will always weave its way through everything we do. It's been there from the start, even on the loudest songs we've made. It only took us a couple of days to record it, but this is the album we've been making our whole lives. We just needed the right people and the right songs to finish it.”
We teach like we create, organically. We meet each student where they are and attempt to help them grow to where they'd like to be. Whether that is playing an instrument, writing a song or performing, we help individuals connect to an inner desire to be more creative, more curious, more engaged, and these characteristics naturally make better artists.
