King Wilderness – “Here I Go Again”


Adam Walton fronts Nashville-based project King Wilderness. His sound merges his love for folk and mountain music with immediate, rock-forward tendencies. On the project, Adam says: “King Wilderness was created as a vehicle to process the tension between the life I live, and the life I dream of. The reality is, life looks pretty mundane most of the time. There are always good things about it, but it’s also not where we hope to remain for the next 30 years. This is the main question I wrestled with in the songs and sounds of King Wilderness. It’s a quest for more – and an invitation to dream of living the amazing life we were designed for.”

Soaring new track “Here I Go Again” is the first of three singles to be released over the summer of 2017. “I chose this song as the first single because I feel like it best encapsulates this journey I’m on,” Adam explains. “This song introduces the listener to my journey as King Wilderness.” Propelled by a shimmering chorus with anthemic vocals, warm guitar jangles, and a touch of keys – in addition to a muscle-y bridge around 01:48 with vibes reminiscent of My Morning Jacket – “Here I Go Again” is a bright and catchy introduction to this promising indie-rock project.
