Wood & Wire / Press

“They say everything is bigger in Texas and as far as Wood and Wire from Austin, Texas sound goes, the band goes plenty big on their self titled CD, Wood and Wire. Wood and Wire offers the bluegrass sound that has been a staple of American culture since Bill Monroe and his band first got the bluegrass ball rolling. With the opening notes of the first song and throughout the entire CD, Wood and Wire dispels any myth that bluegrass is best straight out of the Appalachia area of the United States. Wood and Wire has the old school banjo rolls along with the picking AND the grinning plus the vocals that create the high lonesome sound that all bluegrass bands strive to deliver. Each of these musicians has a mastery of their instrument and all shine as their opportunity arises to step up for a solo. Listeners among Wood and Wire’s audience not needing a catchy bluegrass twist on a pop song will appreciate how the band keeps their music real and well grounded in the classic bluegrass style.”
