Nashville, Tenn. – Critically-acclaimed group Wilson Banjo Co. just released their brand new single, “Nightbird.” The track highlights the South Carolina based band’s edgier side, with compelling lyrics that will instantly grab listener’s attention throughout the duration of the mid-tempo anthem. Fans can download and/or stream the full song HERE.

“We always look forward to seeing new songs in the inbox from our friend and songwriter, Rick Lang,” says Steve Wilson. “When ‘Nightbird’ arrived, we could barely wait to start arranging and recording it. We look for songs that showcase clear and present imagery. ‘Nightbird’ was right in our wheelhouse. We thank Rick for sending it and hope you all enjoy it.”

“Nightbird” is a song that centers around the distinctive lead vocals of Wilson Banjo Co. lead singer Sarah Logan, alongside world-class banjo extraordinaire and studio veteran Steve Wilson. The result is a must-hear recording that also channels the band’s progressive vibes. The new single delivers their signature sound throughout, following in the vein of previous hits “When the Crow Comes Down” and the early 2023 release “Holler.”

Wilson Banjo Co. is currently in the studio working on their next full-length album coming in 2024. It will feature previous singles like the gritty Appalachian anthem, “Holler,” along with the most recent offering, “Don’t Forget About Maggie.” The album will serve as the follow-up to the band’s 2021 project, Six Degrees of Separation. The collection produced two number one singles, multiple top 10 hits, and even two years after its official release it sits at No. 3 on Roots Music Report’s Traditional Bluegrass Album chart this week.
