The story of Midnight River Choir is proof that sometimes great bands just happen. One night, four strangers ended up on a late night float trip down the Guadalupe River. As they made their way down the river singing songs, the beautiful harmonies floated into the heads of sleeping campers. The next morning, the boys overheard a man telling a friend that he was “awakened by a midnight river choir.” That was all it took. Eric Middleton (lead singer and guitarist), Justin Nelson (lead guitarist), Jeromy Yager (former bassist), and Mitchell Pyeatt (drummer), realized the magic of their combined talents and began writing and performing together under that River-God given name.
The formation of Midnight River Choir was nothing short of a force of nature that now translates seamlessly during their live shows. This band needs no labels or comparisons. Their music speaks volumes about who and what they are. Their lives have been woven together by a strong thread of energy both on and off stage. That energy is raw and natural and soaked up from the earth through their bare feet. They believe that what you get is what you give and they give everything they have to their crowds. When that kind of energy lands back at the feet of the boys it is something of supreme intensity. And no one ever forgets it.

With roots buried deep within the genres of blues, alt. country, americana, soul, and a major influence of old-fashioned American rock and roll, it’s extremely hard to describe exactly what brand of music you’re hearing coming from whatever stage or stereo system the Offenders are occupying. But one thing is for sure. It refuses to go unnoticed. And what good is music once it’s been labeled anyway?

The guys released their debut album, ‘Shape of it All,’ late in the summer of 2007 and have sent several songs to the top requested lists – including the number 1 song of 2008 on radiofreetexas.org, ‘Fallin From High.’
The band spent much of 2009 gearing up for the release of their much anticipated ‘Lee Road Sessions’ EP to be followed up with a full length album of entirely all new material.

Now, after teaming up with famed producer Mike McClure, the third record is complete and will be released January 18th, 2011. ‘Not Broken Yet’ is a 13 track (12 new, 1 re-recorded) album of material unlike anything you have ever heard from Hunter McKithan & the Offenders. Be sure to grab a copy of the album and catch a live show next time they’re in your area.

Nov 1 Americana Night: Wood & Wire, Libby Koch & Ordinary Elephant

wood and wire

Anyone wondering about Wood & Wire’s sound need not look any further than the four-piece band’s name, which honors the purity of acoustic instruments and the gorgeous music a skilled artist can coax out of just simple wood and wire.

Founded in 2010, Wood & Wire’s core members are Tony Kamel on lead vocals and guitar, Dominic Fisher on Bass, and Trevor Smith on Banjo. Their sound, as Smith puts it, is “a modern take on traditional mountain, hillbilly, and country music”. In just a few short years, the band has had the honor of playing notable festivals and venues across the country like The Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Old Settlers Music Festival. Later in 2014, they’ll make their way across the country playing Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in Oak Hill, NY and the IBMA Street Fair in Raleigh, NC. After that the guys will make their way home to Austin to play the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

In February 2013, the band released their self-titled debut album to much critical acclaim. In March of this year, the guys began work on their follow up album working again with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Erick Jaskowiak in Nashville, TN. Their second effort is a coming of age collection of original songs based on real and personal experiences with a coastal theme and is set for release in early 2015. While Kamel is the primary songwriter and vocalist, his tunes become Wood & Wire tunes when coupled with the talents, insight, and ideas of Fisher and Smith. The album will also feature an original written and sung by Fisher and an eclectic instrumental composed by Smith.

Touring heavily to round out the second half of 2014, the band has recently enlisted the talents of Billy Bright on the mandolin. Billy is a veteran in the acoustic music world having toured with Peter Rowan for many years and worked with heavy hitting legends like Tony Rice and Vassar Clements.

Wood & Wire is poised to have a another breakout year; as they bring fiery bluegrass footstompers and loose, acoustic jams to packed venues across the country, it’ll be hard to say who’s having a better time: the band or the crowd.
