In this Derringer Discoveries Rising Star episode, we highlight powerhouse singer Erin Lunsford and her terrific band, The Wildfire. Erin & The Wildfire are gaining fans and followers up and down the East Coast and beyond with their awesome vocals, excellent musicianship, positive messages, and high energy live shows.
Erin grew up in a small town in southwestern Virginia playing music around the area with her mom, a guitar teacher. It was while she attended the University of Virginia in Charlottesville that she met her future friends and bandmates.
Seeking a larger market, the group eventually moved to Richmond, Virginia, and still considers the city their home base. Erin & The Wildfire are veterans of mid-Atlantic music festivals having RoosterWalk, FloydFest, and the LOCK’N Festival. They have shared NPR’s Mountain Stage with many notable acts.
Their much-anticipated sophomore album, Touch Feely, is scheduled to drop on April 1, 2022. (We're not kidding!) Many of the songs on the album are deeply personal and will resonate with a great deal of listeners. The band focuses on self-acceptance, body positivity, and life happiness through their catchy, uplifting songs. Fans of soul, R&B, disco-funk, and indie-pop won't find a better catalog of music!
The band consists of:
- Erin Lunsford, vocals
- Ryan Lipps, guitar
- Nick Quillen, drums
- Matt Wood, bass
- Stephen Roach, keyboards
