Dan & the Wildfire
Dan & the Wildfire began in 2011 as an indie/folk trio. Since then, the Boston-based outfit has evolved into a "soulful rock n'roll" quintet. Though their sound is ever-changing, the core of the band hinges upon carefully crafted lyrics, saturating vocal harmonies, and high-level musicianship.
In early 2018, the group began to record and release "The River's Gonna Rise,": a multivolume project that saw its first installment delivered to listeners this winter. With two studio albums in tow, Dan & the Wildfire's most recent offering is proving to be their most impactful, personal, and genuine yet. When listening to The River's Gonna Rise, Pt. 1, expect an emotional and sonic roller coaster, complete with soaring solos, bluesy guitar riffs, and honest poetry.
Whether on a large stage, like Foxwoods Resort Casino's Grand Pequot Theatre or a smaller stage like Harvard Square's famous Club Passim, Dan & the Wildfire brings the same passion and intensity to every performance. Armed with new music, the @DATWILDFIRE crew, as you'll find them on social media, is ready to show you why they're soon to be your new favorite band.

Bio: Boston-based Erica Leigh is an ASCAP & SESAC award-winning singer-songwriter, whose fans describe as a mesh between Paula Cole, Sara Bareilles & Imogen Heap. Her lyrically-driven songwriting is both heartfelt and honest, inspired by human experiences of vulnerability and self-discovery - in particular, she is driven as an artist by her recent experience as a cancer survivor. Deli Magazine says "Erica Leigh, is not only a singer/songwriter with an exceptional talent. She is also an uplifting figure in the community, a source of hope for those who share in her struggle." 2-time Grammy award-winning producer Ben Wisch [Marc Cohn] says, "What a gift you've been given. Such a joy to hear your voice and spirit." John Mayer says "Your music is so soulful... and sexy... I love your phrasing." Erica is currently working on her Sophomore album. You can find her debut album Puzzle Heart on iTunes and Spotify. You also can follow her behind the scenes music stories on Instagram as @ericaleighmusic, or her Facebook fanpage: /ericaleighfans.
