Wildfire Poets

carrying the fire

 

Wildfire Poets is an Americana band based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. The band combines a soulful blend of rock, country, blues, and folk that sounds both fresh and familiar. They accomplish this by embracing their musical roots but refusing to be limited by them. They use their influences and a spirit of experimentation to fine-tune songs that often blur the lines between genres.

Wildfire Poets is fronted by songwriter Kevin Michael Thompson whose music has appeared on television shows such as Pawn Stars, American Pickers, What Not to Wear and many more. He has released several solo albums including Ghosts From Two Towns Over (2018) and Good News in These Bad Times (2015).
