Description
-------------------------
Anyone wondering about Wood & Wire's sound need not look any further than the four-piece band's name, which honors the purity of acoustic instruments and the gorgeous music a skilled artist can coax out of just simple wood and wire.
Founded in 2011, Wood & Wire's core members are Tony Kamel on lead vocals and guitar, Dominic Fisher on Bass, and Trevor Smith on Banjo. Their sound, as Smith puts it, is "a modern take on traditional mountain, hillbilly, and country music". In just a few short years, the band has had the honor of playing notable festivals and venues across the country like The Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Old Settlers Music Festival. In 2014, they made their way across the country to play The Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in Oak Hill, NY and the IBMA Street Fair in Raleigh, NC before heading back home to Austin to play the legendary Austin City Limits Music Festival.
In February 2013, the band released their self-titled debut album to much critical acclaim. In March of this year, the guys began work on their follow up album working again with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Erick Jaskowiak in Nashville, TN. Their second effort is a coming of age collection of original songs based on real and personal experiences with a coastal theme and is set for release in early 2015. While Kamel is the primary songwriter and vocalist, his tunes become Wood & Wire tunes when coupled with the talents, insight, and ideas of Fisher and Smith. The album will also feature an original song written and sung by Fisher and an eclectic instrumental composed by Smith.
In the fall of 2014 they began working on a traditional project in which they recorded some of their favorite traditional songs, the traditional way – live, in one room, around one microphone. The first of many future volumes of this project will be released in December.
Touring heavily to round out the second half of 2014, the band has recently enlisted the talents of Billy Bright on the mandolin. Billy is a veteran in the acoustic music world having toured with Peter Rowan for many years and worked with heavy hitting legends like Tony Rice and Vassar Clements.
Wood & Wire is poised to have a another breakout year; as they bring fiery bluegrass footstompers and loose, acoustic jams to packed venues across the country, it'll be hard to say who's having a better time: the band or the crowd.
