In the sometimes tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire's ‘band style' ethos are not unheard of, but certainly atypical. As are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their TX home. Tony Kamel - leader singer, guitarist, mover, shaker, and primary songwriter - brings his material to the group in a malleable form, and the results are undeniable. ”I think I'm most proud of how we've developed our sound together", says Kamel. ”It feels great to step on stage feeling like we've really found our own style.”
A culmination of very distinct musical personalities, there's one ambition they all share, “Our goal is to show up and drive, so that the energy hits you, and it’s undeniable,” says Bassist Dom Fisher.
Self-dubbed browngrass – think bluegrass on steroids – Sour Bridges is inspired by greats like Gram Parsons, The Band and The Byrds. The funky, rock-inspired group’s distinct sound starts with a steady drumbeat, layers on bluegrass instrumentation – banjo, guitar, bass, and fiddle – and tops off with electric guitar, boots, and impressive harmonies.
Hailing from as far away as Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and other parts of Texas, members include Bill Pucci (vocals, banjo, guitar), Matt Pucci (vocals, mandolin, lead guitar), Kat “Mama Kat” Wilkes (fiddle), Dalton Chamblee (drums), and Jack Bridges (vocals, bass guitar).
“We all met on the frets in Austin, Texas,” summed Honesdale, Pennsylvania-native and founding member Bill Pucci, who moved to the music mecca in 2007 along with brother Matt. The two grew up picking bluegrass style with family, including a grandfather who played and built banjos.
Sour Bridges celebrates its third studio release, Sour Bridges (May 12, 2015). Produced at Austin’s Church House Studios, Bridges includes original songs – largely by Bill Pucci – that reflect on heartaches and hard times (“Dirt Poor”), greener pastures (“Fine Life,”) and picking yourself up again (“Carry On”). Previous albums include Catfish Charlie (2013) and the group's 2010 debut, Workin’ On Leavin'.
