“A sense of mystery and majesty.” –No Depression 

From the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem, the Sahel Desert to Carnegie Hall, music has been the source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi Salloway (Bombino/Hey Mama/Avi & Celia) joined by an inspired cast of singular artists who have performed across five continents including concerts at Coachella, Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Montreal Jazz Fest, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. 

Billy Wylder reminds us that through the darkest of nights, the sun still does rise to light up the day and help the planet grow. The band’s last album, Strike the Match, was a reflection of a world filled with beauty and despair. It was a call to action, inspiring the listener to become the light we need to illuminate our shared path forward. Billy Wylder’s newest work, Whatcha Looking For, picks up the thread where their last LP left off, pushing into new sonic territory. The EP calls attention to where our attention lies, looking at what stories, perspectives, histories, and media we choose and do not choose to inform our consciousness and direction. The band knows that it takes courage to follow your dreams, to create your own sense of purpose and meaning while living in a society where the media and politics relentlessly project fear, hatred, division, and consumerism. Whatcha Looking For embodies fierce courage and asks the listener the question directly while offering a sense of hope and possibility.
