Jesse Wilde & The Drive will be performing at Backbeat Bar on Friday the 29th of April 2016 to celebrate the release of Wilde's debut E.P. Ghost Town Road.

The E.P. is an homage of sorts to the faded allure of Route 66 and to Wilde’s American musical influences.

These beautifully crafted Americana pop rock songs conjure the likes of Mellencamp, Seger and Earle. Lead title single ‘Ghost Town Road’ co-written with the legendary Rick Beresford propels us with warm, hearty production, passion and nostalgia and builds to a crescendo:

I can feel the dust bowl pilgrims chasing dreams paved with gold

All us ghosts that refuse to die, spirit of the rebel’s pride

Out here man it’s still alive on Ghost Town Road                   

“I’ve usually produced my own music” says Wilde “so this is the first time I have hired a real producer and I’m really happy I did”.

Known for his work on Jamie McDell’s debut and Autozamn recordings, Stephen Small produced the e.p. with Tom Healy on engineering duties, all taking place in Wilde’s home studios Wilde Records in Half Moon Bay.

 Wilde’s band The Drive is comprised of talented musicians Henrik Rylev (drums), Mark Collier (electric guitar) and Aaron Watkins (bass).
