AUSTIN, TX — Wood & Wire, Austin’s
own four-piece bluegrass and Americana band, will release its debut
self-titled studio album on Feb. 5, 2013.
 
The album was recorded in Nashville
and produced by award-winning engineer Erick Jaskowiack, whose
discography includes work with The Chieftains, The Gibson Brothers and
Colin Hay. WOOD & WIRE includes original compositions written by the
band, showcasing the group’s tight-fitting arrangements and rich
musicianship. It also features special guest Brittany Haas (Crooked
Still) on fiddle.
 
Founded in 2010 by guitarist Tony
Kamel and mandolin player Matt Slusher, who honed their acoustic skills
playing with acts like Graham Wilkinson, South Austin Jug Band and
Rodney Hayden, Wood & Wire began to take form when bassist Dom
Fisher joined Matt and Tony’s jam sessions. Last spring, the trio
officially added Trevor Smith (Green Mountain Grass) on banjo and
started making a name for itself on the Austin music scene.
 
Wood & Wire has been performing
select shows with Yonder Mountain String Band and will be touring this
summer. The band’s CD release show will be held at the Cactus Café in
Austin on Feb. 8.
