"A combination of earth and air, soulful female vocals call to your Spirit while the American feel of the pedal steel brings you back to earth, speaking to every dream you have ever had of exploring the wild unknown. The spacious electric guitar is carried by a deep rhythm section and you notice that both your soul and your body are being invoked, being moved.

Every harmony answering your call, and every beat posing a question.

The Wild Hymns truly belong to the wild.”

Tifani Truelove (tifanitruelove.com)

The music of The Wild Hymns is a mix of melodically-enchanting Modern folk and Americana with touches of Gypsy Jazz, world, gospel, rock and ambient/improvisational music. Their music is often described as beautifully mellow and laid-back, though the sound of "the hymns" (as some fans have called the band) can have a high-spirited and wild side, especially in a live setting.


Their lyrics and musical compositions / improvisations are greatly influenced by personal and universal love, nature, mysticism and the exploration of emotion and what it means to be human. They are reclaiming the word “hymn”, releasing it from the sometimes limiting beliefs of the church and letting it loose into the wild to mean anything and everything sacred.

The Wild Hymns debut, self-titled album started out as a solo album of the music of songstress Megan Woodland Donley with guitarist Jeff Hewitt and drummer Steve Witmer. With the addition of Clem Foust on pedal steel guitar, bassist Chris Towson, and vocalist/lyricist Krystle Seitz adding harmony, as well as a few guest artists (bassist Donna Volles and breathtaking violinist Helena Protopapas), the album blossomed in scope and sound and led to the formation of the band, The Wild Hymns. Though Donley fronts the band with her vocals and provides songs and lyrics, all material is expanded upon by the entire group; collaboration and creative exploration has been fundamental to the band since its conception.

The Wild Hymns offer songs that are ethereal, haunting and familiar, comforting and inspiring, invoking the deepest of longings, the most elusive of emotions, and the raw, wild spirit that lies within each and every one of us.
