The album that Relixis calling “modern American rock music at its finest” has also had songs spotlighted by the New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR Music and GQ, which named lead single “Casanova” one of their “Songs of the Summer 2018.” “Casanova” has also been the #1 most added song at Triple A and Americana radio.


Rayland’s had a busy release week, appearing everywhere from the Howard Stern Wrap-Up Show to live sessions with Paste, Relix, and WFUV. Rayland currently has more than 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify; he taped a Singles Session this week and performed a Fans First show in Brooklyn in May. Latest digital single “79 Shiny Revolvers” has been featured on many Spotify playlists as well, including New Music Friday and Fresh Folk, and also was placed on Apple Music’s Best of the Week playlist.


’Wide Awake’ is produced by Butch Walker (Weezer, Pink, Pete Yorn) and features Walker himself on bass, Cage the Elephant’s Nick Bockrath on guitar, Dr. Dog’s Eric Slick on drums, and piano wizard Aaron Embry (Elliott Smith, Brian Eno) on keys. Rayland’s father Bucky Baxter contributes pedal steel, as does original Nashville Cat Lloyd Green.
