Josh Krajcik with the Wet Darlings Award winning singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Josh Krajcik makes his Natalies debut backed by The Wet Darlings, a dynamic band based in Columbus.When he was just 16-years-old, Josh Krajcik played his first gig in his hometown of Wooster, Ohio, and over the next 14 years, he fronted a host of musical projects and eventually founded the Josh Krajcik Band, a three-piece blues-rock outfit that toured with the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae and The Fray and appeared on the Bonnaroo Music Festivals 2006 lineup. But by 2011 Krajcik was fighting to sustain his music career, and ended up taking a job at a burrito joint to make ends meet. On a whim, Krajcik then auditioned for The X Factor USAand soon found himself wowing audiences with his gravelly-rich voice and stirring delivery on the shows premiere season. His highly acclaimed album Blindly, Lonely, Lovely pair his powerful vocals with intensely passionate, soul-infused songwriting.With music that straddles saccharine and grit, The Wet Darlings stick to the roof of your mouth, and perhaps make you want to brush your teeth. Bubble-gum sweet pop-rock hooks belie themes of salty emotion and lovelorn hangovers, with vocals that are a punch to the gut.Their first full-length album Beautiful Things was recently released to rave reviews, and the band has shared the stage with artists Twenty One Pilots, Kings of Leon, British dance-rockers Deluka, MONA, The Spin Doctors, Saintseneca, Red Wanting Blue, Lydia Loveless, and more.The Wet Darlings are Jenny Lute (Vocals), Bill Patterson (Guitar, Synth), Joe Patterson (Bass, Synth), Aaron Bishara (Drums).
