Singer/songwriter Bear Rinehart, aka Wilder Woods, is receiving a fantastic reaction across the board for his sophomore album FEVER / SKY, out now on Dualtone Records. With singles “Maestro (Tears Don’t Lie)” “Patience” and “Be Yourself,” Wilder Woods has already reached over 10 million listeners on Spotify alone, with featured placements on playlists New Music Friday, Run Wild, Fresh Folk and more.  Additional listeners are tuning in via Apple, Music, Amazon and other DSPs. Radio has embraced Wilder Woods as well. “Maestro (Tears Don’t Lie)” continues its climb at Triple A radio with support from over 50 stations and a recent Mediabase chart debut.
Today Rinehart offers a stripped-down version of the single “Be Yourself,” which highlights his soulful voice as he gently pleads with a partner for honesty.  Watch/listen HERE.

Press has raved about FEVER / SKY as well. Accolades include:

“... introspective and a moving, passionate collection which hopefully results in more of the same.” – American Songwriter

“... Rinehart anchors the joyous cacophony in his music with a sense of confidence and empathy." – No Depression

"Soulful Americana indicative of Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats." – Saving Country Music

On FEVER / SKY, Bear Rinehart (also known as the frontman for Grammy-nominated, chart-topping band NEEDTOBREATHE) explores a different creative outlet outside of the larger group dynamic. Wilder Woods offers Rinehart the opportunity to experiment and grow with different sounds, styles and textures, while also embracing new challenges along the way. He shares, "I'm giving myself the freedom to do what I want to do and say what I want to say. This isn't the kind of journey where I'm worried about the places I'm headed or the places I've left; it's a journey where I'm just happy to be in the car, driving forward."
