Whisky & War
Savannah, GA's own local-boys-done-good, The Train Wrecks offer up raucous and rollicking Americana that's as equally indebted to the traditionalist legacies of A.P. Carter and Johnny Cash as it is to the forward-thinking rock & roll of Wilco and Lucero. Local reviewers have been blown away by the band's live shows, and the Wrecks have been officially dubbed The Hardest Gigging Band in Savannah, a testament to the love and dedication they have for their music. The band recently completed the recording of their debut CD Whiskey & War, and released it in the fall of 2007. The reviews rolled in! The Connect dubbed the record simply a revelation. The kind of simultaneously slick and raw record which Ryan Adams regularly cranks out to much critical acclaim, while Murmur Magazine called it the best record to come out of Savannah in years. The Wrecks have spent the summer headlining club dates and playing festivals throughout the southeast, and are in the midst of planning a full-scale tour in the new year. The Train Wrecks are a band in the truest sense: All the members are involved in the writing and arranging of the songs, and each member plays multiple roles during their high-energy live shows. Jason Bible (guitar, voice, harmonica) is an award-winning singer-songwriter hailing from Ft. Worth, TX. Carolina-raised Markus Kuhlmann (drums, voice, guitar) and Savannah homeboy Eric Dunn (elec. Bass, upright bass, voice) have split their time in The Train Wrecks with regional alt-rock favorites Hazel Virtue. Stuart Harmening (dobro, banjo, guitar) is a studio session player who also picks with bluegrass juggernaut The Jimmy Wolling Band. All four bring their own unique perspective and talents to the table to create a singular musical vision, one that they hope to bring to as many people as possible as they continue to tour tirelessly and passionately.
