Like the untamed terrain that they derive their name from, the young Portland band called Great Wilderness has taken to the mindset that constant change is key to their well-being. Within the last year, the group has hollowed out a bold and resounding female-led indie rock sound that has stemmed from their more acoustic folk music roots that they began receiving attention for in their first days.

Led by the beautiful Jamie McMullen (vocals, electric guitar) and the comedic Emily Overstreet (vocals, keys, guitar), Great Wilderness finds a home easily with fans of Fleetwood Mac. The ladies are backed by tasteful arrangements on electric guitar by Jon Balsley, Joshua Kennedy on drums, and Corey Dieckman on bass.

Work is well under way for their first full-length record. While the band has not vocalized a release date or a title, anticipation from local Portland media is building. In 2011, local and national press bestowed generous accolades on their intimate folk EP ‘Rest’. The only hint of what’s to come is a chilling single that was independently released in March 2012 called ‘The Enemy’. The Portland Mercury describes the single as a “striking, resonant piece with a chilly but completely involving sound.”

    i just listened to one of great wilderness’s singles and their sound is solid. since i haven’t yet discovered many local bands, and have heard doug fir lounge is a lovely venue, i consider myself a worthy beneficiary of this treat. :)

    I find a home easily with Fleetwood Mac? At least I think that’s what my friends say about me. I feel like I would.
