Wilder Woods is the solo project by critically acclaimed singer Bear Reinhart, who is known as the founding member of NEEDTOBREATHE. He has released his self-titled album and is embarking a world tour to support his new music. With the name inspired by his son’s names, Wilder and Woods Reinhart, Toronto got the chance to see a different side of Reinhart’s music at the Mod Club, with supporting act Four20s.
The Four20s got the audience grooving to their mix of funk, soul, and jazz music, as they move to the band’s laid back tunes. It was an entertaining set as they got the audience warmed up for the main act.
After a brief intermission, the Four20s return to the stage to support Wilder Woods. They get the crowd excited as Bear Reinhart enters the scene. He comes up banging, as he delivers powerful vocals and interacting with the crowd. His set contained a variety of tunes: Alternative tracks in “Light Shine In,” elements of funk music with “Electric Woman,” and stripped-down acoustics in “Religion.” Wilder Woods ends the night with “Supply & Demand,” where it feels like a throwback to the 1970s. This show was a fascinating one; it was a show representing a mix of young and old to join together and enjoy captivating music. Toronto will hope Wilder Woods visits here more often and perform more shows in the future.
