Rising out of the neon desert of Las Vegas, Rock N Roll band O Wildly have quickly made themselves a mainstay in the thriving local music scene. Formed in early 2016, O Wildly was named as one of the music acts to watch in 2018 by the Las Vegas Weekly. Harnessing their craft playing clubs around Downtown Las Vegas the band consisting of Adam Christopher Smith (Lead Vocals and Guitar), Charlie Gott (Drums and Lead Vocals), Carlos Vargas (Lead Guitar and Vocals), and Gregory Adams (Bass and Vocals) is a story still being written. While injecting psychedelic elements into the Laurel Canyon sound of the 60’s and 70’s, O Wildly is on a mission to bridge the time gap while paving a path towards the future, as rock and roll again takes center stage.
Working with producer, David Hopkins (Mark Stoermer, The Brummies), O Wildly released their debut EP recorded at Battle Born Studios (The Killers, Elton John, Alex Cameron) on September 14, 2018 and performed at the 2018 Life is Beautiful Festival with acts such as Death Cab for Cutie, Arcade Fire, Foster the People, Wolfmother, Mt. Joy, and Cold War Kids.

"Life is Beautiful’s culinary lineup may bring some weird fusions (what’s really in a sushi burrito, anyways?), but if Southern-fried indie rock with pinches of blues, folk and soul please your palate, you’ll want to catch o wildly. The quartet’s 2016 debut EP, Sunrise, showcased its ability to transcend the confines of indie, pop punk and good ol’ fashioned rock ‘n’ roll by blending the tasteful elements of each into a satisfying pulp. Listen to the spicy distorted leads of “The Battle of Yoko Ono” or the climactic instrumental bridge of “17 Hours” for a satisfying taste. Now, the band is seeking to expand its sound. O Wildly’s latest single, “Road” features singer/guitarist Adam Christopher Smith showing off his singer/songwriter Americana influence with twangy vocals and wailing guitar leads. “Hey! Don’t take your eyes of the road,” he sings. We hope the band’s road to the festival is a smooth one."

"There aren’t many active local bands that can say they’ve worked with the same producer as The Killers’ Mark Stoermer (David Hopkins). The alt-rockers of O Wildly recently finished up a National Southwestern Recording session with Hopkins that yielded three new songs: “Run From Me,” “We All Hope,” and “You’re Not Around.” “He brought a little more of a psychedelic vibe, which helped to expand our sound,” frontman Adam Smith says. He adds that O Wildly will further explore that new direction in 2018, with plans to tour and record more later in the year."
