In The Wilderness
In The Wilderness is an indie/folk duo comprised of Colorado-to-California transplant Jesse Hawkins (guitar/vocals) and Southern California native Jenny Payne (vocals). They released their debut album, Bonhoeffer, in 2015 and are currently working on releasing new music soon. Hawkins and Payne have appeared in podcasts, gained radio play in the UK and Argentina, and have been featured on KATU news in Portland, OR. This humble pair of best friends is also making their presence known in social media, establishing personable connections with their fans and generating relationships that will likely last their whole career. With their rustic yet modern melodies, interwoven with singer/songwriter vulnerability, they produce a sound that is reminiscent of something you’d hear in a coffee shop tucked away in Seattle. Their strong and unique connectivity through music sparks a reflective truth with fluent but stirring harmonies. But ultimately, it’s their authenticity that draws people in, making their shows like catching up with a couple of old friends.
