The Way Down Wanderers
Voted #1 of 10 New Artists You Need To Know - Rolling Stone Country Winter 2019
The Way Down Wanderers are from the very heartland of America – central Illinois, Peoria, to be exact which is reflected in their distinctive sound, which draws on elements of bluegrass, but also touches on classic rock influences including the multi-part harmonies of the Beach Boys and The Band’s hybrid soul, as well as the roots qualities of The Avett Brothers and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, with surprising elements of jazz, classical music and even hip-hop.
The Way Down Wanderers are often referred to by fans as one of the hardest-working, hardest-touring bands on the circuit today, the 5-piece Illinois-based act not only proves that classification with their jam-packed tour schedule but also on stage every night, with youthful exuberance and a lively stage show, as reliable as it is infectious. High energy percussion, mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo, and fiddle weave seamlessly together to create an experience for fans that has sold out shows across the UK and the United States, filling the front rows with fans not just singing along to one tune, but singing along to all of them.
“Somewhere on the spectrum between Old Crow Medicine Show and Mumford and Sons lies the spirited bluegrass based artistry of The Way Down Wanderers. It is joyful, daring and occasionally sublime.” – Associated Press
