Cover Alert | The Wild Feathers Tackle The Grateful Dead

We were intrigued by this pull quote about The Wild Feathers featured on the band’s Facebook page: “They’re like if Led Zeppelin & The Band had a baby in Joshua Tree that grew up listening to Ryan Adams covering the Stones 70’s country influenced songs.” After listening to the Nashville rockers’ eponymous debut album we tend to agree with the quote.
The Wild Feathers recently visited the SiriusXM Studios in NYC for an installment of the Spectrum Sessions. As part of their set, The Wild Feathers dropped a rollicking cover of The Grateful Dead’s “Tennessee Jed.” We’re excited to premiere audio of the Dead cover:
The band is set to play the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA tomorrow night before they head to the Northeast for performances in Baltimore, Boston and NYC including an appearance at Dylan Fest.
