About Wye Oak
Wye Oak isn't exactly your typical indie folk rock duo. He with the round-framed glasses and wispy brown hair; she with the blunt, flattering fringe of bangs accenting flowing, golden locks. But together Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner come together to make up this Baltimore-based outfit who work just as well apart as they do together.
Stack and Wasner have been playing music together a while. Which would explain the independently released "If Children" in 2007, an album called "The Knot" in 2009 and an EP entitled "My Neighbor/My Creator" in 2010. But it was 2011's highly lauded "Civilian" that pushed them into two years of near constant touring – with Andy on drums, keyboards and backing vocals, and Jenn on lead vocals and both electric and acoustic guitars.
By the time their "Civilian" trek was over, the duo found themselves on opposite sides of the country staring into an unknown future. But instead of calling it quits, the pair worked around the physical distance between them to create "Shriek," Wye Oak's fourth full-length album. The duo added layered pianos and synths, not to mention various instruments, to complete what turned out to be a stunning collaborative arrangement.
Hailed for their vociferous live shows, Wye Oak has also wracked up quite a series of televion credits. Four songs from "Civilian" have been featured in TV series, including "18 Miles Out" ("The Walking Dead"), "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Me Killing You ("Being Human"), "Thy Will Be Done" ("Underbelly: Badness"), and "The Man Who Sailed Around His Soul" ("One Tree Hill").
Wye Oak's 2014 North American Tour kicks off March 3 in Charlottesville, Virginia and currently has dates booked through the end of May.
