First Listen: Deidre Thornell's "Somewhere Wild and Free"

April 13, 2017 by Ana Cahill for Whiskey Riff

This one’s sure to have you in the mood for a little summer love.

Newcomer Deidre Thornell is about to release her debut EP, and this first track definitely has me excited to hear more of her music that blends contemporary country, blues and pop to create a sound that to me is the equivalent of musical sunshine.

“Somewhere Wild and Free’ was inspired by Joe Nichols’ ‘Sunny and 75’. I’d had an experience during a photo shoot a few weeks earlier that was thrilling, a bit scary, and a total adrenaline rush. I wanted to capture that feeling and make it something listeners could identify with. So I took the idea to my co-writer, Bill DiLuigi, and we came up with ‘Somewhere Wild and Free.”

Keep an eye out for her debut EP early this summer.
