Wildwood Kin – Beauty In Your Brokenness
Made up of family members, Emillie Key, Beth Key, and Meghann Loney, the beauty does exude from the trio. “Have you heard about kintsugi?” asked WILDWOOD KIN. “It is a Japanese art where they take broken pottery and put it back together using lacquer, dusted with gold and silver powder, to make a unique piece of art with intricate patterns only the brokenness creates. It is a reminder that our imperfections, mishaps and tragedies shape us and make us who we are.” The trio’s self titled sophomore album drops 4th of October and with vocals as sumptuous as they present, it’ll be a great way into the holiday season.
