The Penniless Wild sign to Anara Publishing


We’re delighted to announce that the American indie rock/folk outfit The Penniless Wild is the latest addition to the Anara Publishing roster.

The Penniless Wild is a five-piece originating from Hartford, Connecticut. Their style appeals to the fans of Kings of Leon, The Avett Brothers or KALEO. They combine indie folk vibes with the sound inspired by the rock’n’roll classics, which makes their music so unique. Their mellow sound filled with devotion will give you the feeling of warmth but will also make you reflect on your life. 

The band’s main lyricist, Carson Millican touches the topics of the past heartbreak and emotional charge caused by unrequited feelings. His emotional lyrics accompanied by his raspy, passionate vocals create an unprecedented atmosphere of nostalgia and longing. 

A clear predominance of guitar solos complemented by the rhythmic drum sound can be heard in The Penniless Wild tracks. Along with that, the band manage to perfectly capture the heartfelt mood with their folky vocal harmonies and simple sound that builds amazingly throughout the song.

After the success of their first EP “Cardboard Sheets”, The Penniless Wild have just released three singles Seat Back, Spin and Flesh and are working on more new music for their fans.

The band commented on the signing: “As a band we strive to present our music in a manner of inclusivity. Partnering with Anara was another step towards that overwhelming desire to create a vast, borderless community. As a band based in North America we look forward to extending our family and joining a boutique roster of international like-minded artists. We are excited to be starting this new relationship with Anara – Stay Safe and Be Wild“.

A&R and Sync Coordinator, Jagoda Jagodzińska added: “We’re excited to work with Carson and The Penniless Wild to help them take their music to the next level. With their indie folk sound and confident lyrical style, they are a perfect fit for the Anara Publishing roster! We’re looking forward to representing them for publishing and sync worldwide”.
