WYO is a rock band originating from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Taking inspiration from the cinematic landscapes and epic mountains of his upbringing, singer-songwriter Andy Sorge utilizes an organic instrument palette to create the soundscape that is WYO.
After attending film school in New York, Andy met multi-instrumentalist, Scott McKay Gibson, and the two began composing music for documentaries, commercials, and short films together in Wyoming. Perhaps this explains the reason that WYO's music has a way of evoking such striking visuals that stir the imagination. The pair began delving into Andy's original songs that would soon become this debut album. They teamed up with Los Angeles-based producer, Brad Wood, to provide a fresh ear to finalize their work.
The product is the full-length album, Untamed. This record is a search for a place that's alive and wild. It's a record that deals with love, loss, and constant exploration. It's a tale of reconciling city life with the Wild West of Wyoming.
The Band of Gringos are a true rockin Power Trio from Ocean Beach, San Diego. Their sound has been described as authentic and timeless; often drawing comparisons to the popular bands of the 60's and 70's.
Their original tunes have a classic vibe and a big sound. With strung out improvisational jams and heartfelt vocals, there's never a dull moment when these guys take the stage.
Elektric Voodoo is a "World Beat Rock & Roll" band from southern California that blends classic afrobeat, latin, rock & roll, psych, jazz, blues and many other influences into it's own unique genre that tastefully straddles the line between modern and vintage.
The band started when Scott Tournet (founding member of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals) started writing new material after leaving the Nocturnals. "Musically I wanted to try something a little different than what I'd done before. I wanted to make music with an undeniable rhythmic pulse but I really didn't want to make computer driven dance music as these past few years that seems to be much of what I hear." To accomplish that, Tournet tapped into the rhythms of west Africa, Latin, and World music for inspiration. What came out the other side though was not just a world music project.
Tournet's old band, The Nocturnals, had a quite a successful career which saw them write, record, and perform with The Allman Brothers, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Taj Mahal, Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), Robert Plant, Mavis Staples, Bob Weir, and many more. Through these experiences Tournet became schooled in song craft, soul, pop, blues, and classic rock & roll. So when he began writing songs to go on top of these powerful world rhythms the influences from his past shone through. What the listener is left with is a very unique sound that while immediately is very danceable, also offers innovation, song craft, and melody. Elektric Voodoo is a band that can excite and exhaust a Saturday night audience while also engaging and challenging more focused listeners.
Rounding out this powerful 7 piece ensemble with Tournet (vocals, guitar, harmonica) is Matt Bozzone (drums/percussion), Ty Kiernan (congas, timbales, percussion), Travis Klien (tenor sax, keyboards, percussion), Brad Nash (baritone sax, percussion) Willie Fleming (trombone, vocals, percussion), and Luke Henning (bass).
