The Wind and The Wave consists of Dwight Baker (The Wind) and Patricia Lynn, (The Wave); best friends who employ the mantra “if it feels forced, fuck it.”
After having retired as a touring musician in 2003, Baker came to find Lynn through the production of her previous project in Austin, Texas. After working together on several musical efforts, the two now describe themselves as being “cut from the same thread,” and “rarely on different pages.” This made it easy and essential for Baker and Lynn to begin writing and producing their own music, with a sound that satisfied their own ever-evolving creative spirits.
“All of our songs truly come from the heart,” Lynn says. Baker and Lynn can dive head-first into serious conversation topics and quickly burst into laughter. “We try not to take anything too seriously,” says Baker. “It’s definitely work, but it’s the best kind of work. There’s no sense in doing it unless you’re having fun.”
Last year, The Wind + The Wave released their debut album From The Wreckage with RCA Records. The album glows with a rootsy golden tone that encompasses everything from indiefolk, to alt-country, to blues-rock to Southern psychedelia. Baker and Lynn have just released their second single, “It’s a Longer Road To California Than I Thought”.
