Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, Texas five years ago. In that time, they’ve written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.
In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire’s “band-style” ethos is not unheard of nor are the elements of song crafting that permeate their sound. What comes out of the Wood & Wire blend is something entirely its own.
Tony Kamel, lead singer, guitarist, mover, shaker, and primary songwriter, brings his material to the group in a malleable form. “I think I’m most proud of how we’ve developed our sound together,” says Kamel. “It feels great to step on stage feeling like we’ve really found our style, which feels most to me like alt-country tunes expressed with bluegrass instruments more than anything. It’s all centered around the songs.”
A culmination of distinct musical personalities, there is one ambition they all share. “Our goal is to show up and drive, so that the energy hits you, and it is undeniable,” says bassist Dom Fisher.
Fisher, a New York state native, formed the group with Kamel in 2011 and shortly thereafter, added banjoist Trevor Smith. Smith grew up playing classical piano.
Mandolinist Billy Bright joined the group in 2014. He brought with him a suitcase full of tunes and a trunk full of ideas.
The band began recording their upcoming studio record in Austin this spring and plan for an early 2018 release.
Tickets are $15 and are available at Feistwines.com or at the tasting room in Sutter Creek. Wood fired pizza and wine will also be available.
