First Friday feat. Wood & Wire with Buxton
October 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Wood & Wire
It’s been 5 years since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, TX. In that time, they’ve written music, recorded records, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country. 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.
On their third New West album Stay Out Late, Houston’s Buxton deliver another set of emotionally engaging songcraft, with an organic warmth that affirms the subtle musical chemistry that’s been honed over the years of the band’s existence. Buxton’s spacious sound is ideally suited to the vivid lyrical insights of singer/guitarist Sergio Trevino, whose restless romanticism is reflected in such indelible new tunes as “This Place Reminds Me of You,” “Jan,” “Haunt You” and “Hanging On the Coast.”
