Made up of singer/songwriter Conal Rosanbalm, and talented mandolinist Andrew Thompson, Wichita Run was formed in 2012 around a love of music. A love of acoustic music was first, but an open mind and ear for all kinds of sounds and creativity has helped the process. The writing comes from a place of happiness, which provides a refreshing positive energy. Many other influences also helped create an original and catchy sound that can sound contemporary, yet old at the same time.
Wichita Run excels in solid song structure and engaging lyrics, and with hooks that will make you think you've heard them before, you'll find yourself humming the tune long after the song is over. The tunes are mostly melodic, however the occasional appearance of bassist Mike Simms will provide a groove to dance to, and a reason to tap your foot and nod your head.
