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, 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.
Wheeler Brothers have certainly spent their fair share of time on the road. Along the way, they’ve opened for The Avett Brothers and appeared at festivals including SXSW, Austin City Limits, and many others. For 2013, they’ve got Lollapalooza, Firefly, Newport Folk Festival, and more on the horizon.
