Wood & Wire
As its name suggests, Wood & Wire is a young acoustic band with a love for pure music played well. In 2011, the group exploded onto Austin’s bluegrass and old-time-music scene while quickly gaining a national fan base.
A culmination of distinct musical personalities, the band’s influences range from Led Zeppelin to Doc Watson – and everything in between. The group consists of Dom Fisher, bass, Tony Kamel, guitar, Trevor Smith, banjo, and Billy Bright, mandolin.
For its second album, The Coast, Wood & Wire returned to J Studios in Nashville to work with Grammy-nominated engineer and producer, Erick Jaskowiak. “He is an amazing guy, chock full of positive vibes and so good at what he does,” says Kamel. A coming-of-age collection of original songs with a coastal theme, the album builds on the band’s debut, entertaining fans while drawing back the curtain on members’ substantial musical chops.
