About

The West Country family alt-folk trio

Get the album Wildwood Kin here

Comprised of two sisters and their cousin, Wildwood Kin have been singing together from a young age. Beth and Emillie Key along with Meghann Loney hail from Exeter and learned to harmonise from their mothers. Often compared to the sister act HAIM, they were inspired by artists like Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes and Sigur Rós.

When they were in their late teens, they formed Wildwood Kin, a name that came from growing up near Dartmoor and being family. The trio quickly began honing their alternative folk/Anglo-Americana sound.

In 2015, Wildwood Kin self-released their debut EP Salt Of The Earth and were nominated for BBC Radio 2’s Young Folk Award. They signed to Sony Music’s relaunched Silvertone label in early 2017, and their extraordinary debut album Turning Tides soon followed, spawning the singles Run, Warrior Daughter and Steady My Heart. Praised for their atmospheric three-part harmonies, the album also landed the band slots playing a number of festivals that summer including Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park and Glastonbury.

Wildwood Kin’s eponymous sophomore album arrived in 2019. It was mostly produced by Ian Grimble (Bear’s Den, Travis), with the multi-faceted Ed Harcourt writing and producing the lead single Never Alone. Featuring symbolism-laden lyrics and covering themes like love, loss and spirituality, the album was well-received by critics for its honesty, uplifting presence and delicate melodies. The three-piece supported it with a winter UK and European tour.

In April 2021, Wildwood Kin announced their Move On Out UK tour for late summer 2021.
