Gold Boots Glitter
2013 album from the Austin Music Award winners for Best New Band and Best Roots Rock. Although they're five-time Austin Music Awards winners who've never played a hometown gig that hasn't sold out, the Wheelers view the world as one big stage. 'We've always respected the bands that just get... out there and work their asses off,' says singer/guitarist Nolan Wheeler. 'There's really no better way to create a connection with your audience. ' Nor is there any better way to refine your music: To find yourself in it and discover what makes it yours. That's precisely what the Wheeler Brothers, who also include bassist Tyler Wheeler and drummer Patrick Wheeler, along with guitarist Danny Matthews and lap-steel whiz A. J. Molyneaux, have done over the past few years, honing a unique roots-music sound PasteMagazine has described as bringing 'a bit of the enthusiasm and flavor of the Arcade Fire into their Texas-tinged Americana'.
