Have y’all heard of the Wheeler Brothers? Yeah, me neither…but check them out.
Formed in Austin, WHEELER BROTHERS have emerged as one of the most exciting bands breaking out of Texas. The five-piece act composed of Austin natives combines the gutsy indie vibe of the modern central Texas music scene with the longing strains of time-honored Texas folk. Brothers Nolan, Tyler and Patrick Wheeler met Danny Matthews at LSU where they spent their afternoons picking guitars and swapping stories in the bar rooms of Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Once back in Austin, the group rounded out their sound with the addition of a lifelong friend, guitarist A.J. Molyneaux. Each member brings his own musical direction and ideas to the group, and through precise vocal harmonies and a unique cast of instruments. Wheeler Brothers have created a sound that has put their name in the forefront of the Austin music scene.
I can’t post about brothers without posting about sisters…I give you the Glitter Girls:
Are they still milking that whole “brain tumor” thing? Sheesh. (Insert smiley face here)
If you look closer, there are THREE twins on the stage. I will let you ponder on that one for a while. I am still not able to tell the Spankins’ apart, but I think Short Hair=Long Name=April and Long Hair=Short Name=Amy.
