Two years ago, tragedy struck musician Lyndsi Austin and her family when one of her older brothers passed away. Many of the lyrics she wrote for the debut album of her band Big Wild Wings express her sense of loss. She says making music helped her cope with the grief. While Big Wild Wings tackles some heavy subject matter, the trio’s big, airy sound and Austin’s “angst-y angel” vocals have landed them in the local music scene spotlight. The band joins us Tuesday to play some songs and talk about them.
Big Wild Wings is performing Friday, January 9, at 9 p.m. at Urban Lounge in downtown Salt Lake City as part of the SLUG Localized series of shows. DETAILS
Big Wild Wings is Lyndsi Austin (vocals, bass), Chris Sopor (drums), and Tyler Hummel (keyboards).
