The Collection

The Collection derives an inimitable musical language from the unbreakable bond between its members. Fronted by David Wimbish, the Saxapahaw, NC-based band places just as much emphasis on interpersonal community and relationships as it does on the music itself.

Theirs isn’t an overnight success story. They have generated tens of millions of streams, logged tens of thousands of miles on the road, earned praise from American Songwriter, Glide, Parade, and more, and landed on NPR Tiny Desk Judges’ Picks – all before signing their first record deal with Nettwerk Music Group in 2022.

Over the years, the group has fine-tuned their approach to making music and being together on the road to the point of codifying a signature set of “rules for how to be a band.Wimbish notes these rules maintain “good boundaries and foster better relationships, better shows, and overall better conditions amongst the crew.

They’ve developed a devout fanbase thanks in part to their renowned raucous and rowdy performances. They have lit up festival stages and crisscrossed the country with The Oh Hellos, RIPE, Tall Heights, and Sammy Rae & The Friends, to name a few.

Ultimately, the musicians open their community to anyone in search of one. “I hope you feel validated and empowered when you listen to us,” he leaves off. “We have a community with each other in this band, but everyone who comes to see us or listens is part of that family. It’s all about strengthening those relationships. We’re here for you.
