Wild Leek River started in Burlington Vermont in 2017. Honing their chops at the local honky-tonk Tuesday, Wild Leek River began by playing country classics popularized by outlaw legends such as Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. It wasn't long before singer, Ian Stonerook started to insert his own material and the band took a sharp turn towards roots-rock'n'roll. A heavy blues influence also found its way into the sound. This isn't surprising considering that half of the founding members (Ian Stonerook and Gavin Greenewalt) originally met through playing in the Burlington stoner-metal band, Acid Roach. As Wild Leek River prepares to record their first album they continue to explore the connections between country, blues, and rock'n'roll.
