Nathan Kalish and the Wildfire is an energetic, southern-tinged rock and roll band from Grand Rapids, Mich., with a sound that could be likened to what alt-country was before that wuss Ryan Adams got a hold of it.
Mixing folk and psych rock, Nathan Kalish and the Wildfire come from across the state to bring a tasty blend of sounds.The Wildfire’s sound harkens back to an essential period of music and does so in a way that isn’t demeaning.

Like a wild bottle rocket with a short fuse, Kalish has blasted to the top of Grand Rapids' rock scene in short order, his raw, energetic, rootsy, blissfully catchy tunes packing a more forceful wallop than, say, anything from Ryan Adams or even The Raconteurs. With guitarist Julio Gomez and crew tearin' it up, Kalish spits out blistering, creative, dangerous flames.
