Roll along with the Wheeler Brothers (Created August 8, 2013)
Music is often a family affair, and with the number of famous family bands that have graced the charts and gone on to huge success, don't think The Wheeler Brothers are going to be left out.
Of course all The Wheeler Brothers aren't actually related, but Nolan, Patrick and Tyler Wheeler have established a solid base for a group that has forged a real musical bond. Joined by A.J. Molyneaux and Nathan Rigney, the band is a hybrid mix of rock, folk, roots, Americana and blues that has been gaining momentum since 2011's critically acclaimed debut album "Portraits."
The last two years, in effect, have been an absolute whirlwind for the band. They made their national television debut, swept the "Austin Music Awards" at SXSW 2012 (winning Best New Band and Best Roots Rock Band, while taking home three instrumental awards), and their label, Bismeaux Records was named Best Local Label.
Of course the only way to follow that kind of early success is to showcase their flare and energy out on the road. The Wheeler Brothers have opened for The Avett Brothers and appeared at festivals like Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, Firefly, Newport Folk Festival and more. Along the way, they holed up in a Wichita hotel for two bitter cold days to share ideas for what would become their next album.
"Gold Boots Glitter," their sophomore project, was recorded at a ranch in Texas hill country. It bowed on April 2, 2013 as more narrative and folk-driven, but proved the band has a true precision that undoubtedly comes from a lifetime of making music together.
