Wild Leek River

Burlington, VT

Hailing from Northern Vermont, Wild Leek River is a regular 5-piece country band. The songs they play vibrate with sounds of new and old, steady back-beats and good stories. Their style and performances trace its roots from the honky tonks of days gone by, with rowdy shows across Vermont and throughout the Northeast.

In the release of their self-titled debut LP in 2021, they cultivated and honed in on the sound first sketched out in their 2019 release, “The Bacon EP.” The band also took to recording songs by local Vermont Artists and other friends made along the way. On the LP, they perform versions of “Molly Bootlegger” by Jeremy Sicily of Beg, Steal or Borrow and “Good Intentions” by local VT legend Johnny Davis. Rumor has it that the band will also be heading back into the studio in 2022 to cut another full-length LP. Stay tuned, y’all.


“Burlington’s Wild Leek River is a true blue five-piece country band, complete with pedal steel and fantastic musicianship.”

-Monica Sandreczki “North Country Public Radio”


“When I listen to an album, I want strong steel, vocals that you can hear the feeling in, something I can dance to, and something I can sing along to. This album has all of that. You’ll find the writing of Ian Burton to be catchy and clever. Not only is this a must have album, Wild Leek River puts on one helluva show too!”

-Taylor Austin “Honky Tonk Times”
