Alexa Wiley & the Wilderness aim to record and release a new album called "must be birds" this fall to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the 1964 Wilderness Act.
All money collected from this Kickstarter will go to pay the producer, studio fees and musicians. Alexa will pay additional funds to press and release the songs. Your money will be spent on local masters of their trades. This project is a labor of love made possible by you, the community.

Alexa Wiley & the Wilderness:
Alexa Wiley is expanding her musical landscape. Her current project, Alexa Wiley & the Wilderness, highlights Wiley’s evocative vocals and poetic songs. Paired with the Wilderness’ virtuosity, the ensemble creates a superb sonic lyricism that might be described as wild metaphorical music that rocks.
The Wilderness is comprised of the always adventurous rhythm section of Sean Oldham (Richmond Fountaine) on drums and Dale Turnbull (Loose Change) on bass; the searing vibrancy of master guitarist Bret Malmquist (Jesus Presley), and the crowd pleasing multi-instrumentalist Steve Dearborn (The Outdoorsmen) on banjo, flute, penny whistle, mandolin, guitar, and more.

Risks and challenges
Projects such as these cost a lot of money, twice as much as we are asking and often more. Working with a community of local musicians and producers that care about this project helps me to keep the cost down. Almost everyone I work with is doing me some sort of favor and contributing their talents. I am indebted to the community.
I will work to see this project through no matter what. Thank you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
