Pittsburgh Event


Wheeler Brothers have announced their first round of U.S. tour dates for the new year! The Austin, Texas quartet will kick off their 2014 concert run later this month in Texas, followed by a hometown series of shows during the SXSW Music Festival in March. The band will then hit the road with Provo, Utah’s roots rockers Desert Noises before embarking on the Great Northwest Music Tour in April with Austin local Graham Wilkinson to join as a special guest. Fresh off a wildly successful, break out year that saw the Wheeler Brothers release their new critically-acclaimed album Gold Boots Glitter (Bismeaux Records), the band tirelessly toured performing on featured slots at major summer festivals including the historic Newport Folk Festival and eclectic three-day music fest Lollapalooza, alongside ForecastleAustin City LimitsAmericana MusicUtopiaSXSW music festivals and more. An updated 2014 tour itinerary is listed below, additional dates to be announced.

Wheeler Brothers have spent their fair share of time on the road, along the way performing with The Avett Brothers, Gary Clark Jr., The Lumineers, Drive-By Truckers, and Houndmouth. The band made their national television debut on Last Call with Carson Daily and received widespread acclaim from tastemakers includingRolling StonePaste MagazineAOL SpinnerThe Washington PostElmore MagazineThe Austin Chronicle and performed searing live acoustic sessions withDaytrotter [http://bit.ly/1i8kzmm]  and American Songwriter [http://bit.ly/1ctib9d], among others.

The rave reviews only continued for this family affair on their second full-length albumGold Boots Glitter saying, “the brothers Wheeler have a knack for gussying up their tunes with rootsy instruments without sticking to the confines of any single genre,” [iTunes]. And have been described as tracing a personal lineage of rock, folk, roots, and blues, “the Austin five-piece melds innovative indie-rock elements with their Americana sound” [Paste]. The bands’ debut album Portraits swept the “Austin Music Awards” at SXSW 2012, garnering five awards. Additionally, their label Bismeaux Records was named “Best Local Label”.

Wheeler Brothers are 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]. Fans can contact the band while they’re on the road at 512-983-5934.
