Bryan Elijah Smith & The Wild Hearts are an Alternative-Americana band based out of Dayton, Virginia tucked away in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Smith's unabashedly genuine songwriting and voice go hand in hand with The Wild Hearts raw energy making this band one worth not only listening to but experiencing live. His compositions and aesthetic as a producer create a unique amalgam of Americana that is peppered with mainstream sensibilities to suggest that a future on the airwaves is in the making. With over 500 original songs, 8 independent releases, a solid East Coast touring schedule, notable festival plays (Bristol Rhythm & Roots, FloydFest 10 & 11, The Festy Experience, Jam Cruise 9, 11 & 12, Red Wing Roots Music Festival), a Fall 2013 Australia Tour and upcoming headlining shows at the prestigious State Theatre in Culpeper, VA; Bryan Elijah Smith & The Wild Hearts have proven themselves to be studio journeymen and road tested workhorses that are ready for a national debut with the pending release of their next full length studio effort, 'These American Hearts', due out in late August 2014.
We miss you Tyler.
