What started as the compositional musings of multi-instrumentalist Riley Johnson, Wend has grown into a collaborative ensemble whose songs emerge from playful improvisation and experimentation. With classical instrumentation nestled into a traditional rock ensemble, Wend uses soaring harmonies, polyrhythms, and meandering melodic motifs to create pieces which seem almost lost in time, being as much a nod to old-world folk as to contemporary psychedelic pop and progressive rock.
