The Wheeler Brothers have been taking the indie music scene by storm and earning superb recognition from Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, and the Washington Post.
Making music continues to be a family affair for Wheeler Brothers. The Austin, TX quintet traces a personal lineage of rock, folk, roots, Americana, and blues on its second full-length album, Gold Boots Glitter [Bismeaux Records], cooking up an irresistible and inimitable gumbo of styles in the process. Marching forward from 2011′s critically acclaimed Portraits, the group—Nolan Wheeler [vocals, guitar], Patrick Wheeler [drums], Tyler Wheeler [bass], A.J. Molyneaux [guitar, lap steel, back up vocals], and Nathan Rigney [guitar, backup vocals]—opens the door even wider for everyone to join the family.
Their latest album “Gold Boots Glitter” is awesome! and can be played start to finish on repeat! They have opened for The Avett Brothers, Gary Clark Jr., and captured huge audiences at SXSW, Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL), Lollapalooza, Firefly Music Festival, THE FORECASTLE FESTIVAL, and more!
“The Wheeler Brothers actually bring a bit of the enthusiasm and flavor of The Arcade Fire into their Texas-tinged Americana.” -Paste Magazine
“Rooted in the many shades of Americana, the Austin-based quintet isn’t afraid of borrowing from the past and joins an increasing number of groups such as the Head and the Heart and Fleet Foxes in carving a new sound into indie’s vast sonic landscape.” -The Washington Post
“One of Austin’s most exciting up and coming bands … It’s Austin music at its finest. Rock & roll with a bit of twang…” -Carson Daly, Last Call with Carson Daly
