THOMAS WYNN AND THE BELIEVERS ~ Southern Rock Muscle ~ Soulful Rock n' Blues

If you like Tom Petty, The Band, The Black Crowes, CCR, Pink Floyd, old-school Memphis R&B, you'll love TW&TB! A combination of blistering rock and southern soul, Thomas Wynn and The Believers is a 5-piece fiery ensemble playing the original music circuit, touring nationally and making "believers" wherever they go. Known for their powerful LIVE performances, the band is currently on the road with the likes of JJ Grey & Mofro, Tea Leaf Green, and The Revivalists.

"One of the newest, brightest, tightest, smoothest, most energetic bands to ever come through," Alan Walden, 2003 Inductee, Georgia Music Hall Of Fame

Hailing from a musical family, the sibling-led band is heavily influenced by Thomas and Olivia's father, Tom Wynn, the original drummer of Cowboy, one of Capricorn Studio's (Allman Brothers) legendary bands from the 1970s. His influence, as well as their faith and church upbringing, undoubtedly shaped their songwriting and musical interests. Their deeply-rooted principles certainly laid the foundation for what the Wynns bring to The Believers' sound. Thomas’ spirit-moving vocals are uniquely supported by sister Olivia's engaging and captivating voice and presence. Her strong vocal harmonies and wide-eyed response is the perfect companion to his yearning banshee cries.

REAX Magazine recently said… "For once, you have a Florida band that is truly Florida. They look like Florida, they sound like Florida - with a touch of Molly Hatchett, The Band, Neil Young, and The Black Crowes. Not fad hipster, not transplant Florida, but Florida Florida. These guys are on the leading edge of creating a new southern rock scene. The sum of the parts is the strongest live shows in the region. Powerful melodies and hooks, grinding jams with soaring guitars and tight drum work, and a front man that carries the audience to new heights."

“Better every time! Wynn plenty comfortable as demonstrative frontman, accentuating hard-charging hybrid of Southern rock & gospel with magnetic stage presence-makes us Believers! channels old-school Memphis R&B and rock, allowing Wynn to let his gritty tenor be carried away by emotion. really love this band” — Jim Abbott/Soundboard, Orlando Sentinel
