Introducing…The Wild Boars!
As music publishers we always like to explore new territories and we are pleased to announce our latest signing, The Wild Boars, our first step in the alternative-country, roots music and “americana” world. The Wild Boars are a 6 piece band based in Turin, Italy, led by two singers with different origins and style, UK born Andy Penington and Stefano Raggi, a bluesman from Rome. The result is a sound with many different influences and contaminations, from country to blues, bluegrass, Irish folk and many other elements, always played with a deep love and respect for tradition. The Wild Boars have played several gigs in Italy, Switzerland and Germany and they are currently working on the recording of their debut album that will be ready for the end of 2009. The publishing deal includes also Andy Penington solo album, “Cheated Hearts”, released in 2004 and recorded by the musicians that are now part of The Wild Boars.
