Veteran Midwest Band Prepares for National Release of Self-Titled EP

NASHVILLE, TN (May 10, 2011) – LiveWire, a well-established Country band based in the Southwest MO area, have released their debut single “Tater Fed” to radio. 
The song is available for fans to purchase at iTunes and other national digital retailers, including CD Baby http://cdbaby.com/cd/livewire3.
“Tater Fed” is from LiveWire’s self-titled national debut EP, co-produced in Nashville by engineer / producer, Bart Pursley (Gretchen Wilson/Big & Rich), Bobby DeGonia and Justin Woods. “Tater Fed” is quickly becoming the band’s anthem. With an edgy, pounding rhythm section punctuated by searing lead guitar and hot fiddle runs, the song is dark and tribal sounding and lays out the hard-scrabble reality of growing up in the rural Ozark Mountain heartland. Edgy, honest and passionate, LiveWire’s unique sound has been described as “Rascal Flatts-meets-Charlie Daniels.”
In its earliest incarnation in the mid-90s, LiveWire was performing weekends at VFWs and local clubs around Southwestern Missouri and Northeastern Oklahoma. The group underwent various personnel changes before founder and lead guitarist Bobby DeGonia joined with lead vocalist Andy Eutsler, drummer Adam Hagerman, fiddle player Cory Shultz, and rhythm guitarist Danny Bell to complete the lineup.
LiveWire has been performing around the four-state area of MO, AR, KS and OK for over a decade and has developed into one of the top-draw acts on the regional casino and club circuit. Along the way, their homegrown talent has taken them across America and to the hallowed stage of the Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville.
LiveWire recently performed for a well-attended music industry showcase and EP preview in Nashville where they impressed the gathered music business professionals. The band has signed with Nashville-based management and marketing company Clif Doyal Agency to guide their career as they prepare for their nationwide album release.
About LiveWire:
LiveWire has been bringing crowds to their feet for over a decade. In its earliest incarnation in the mid-90s, LiveWire was performing weekends at VFWs and local clubs around Southwestern Missouri and Northeastern Oklahoma. The group underwent various personnel changes before founder and lead guitarist Bobby DeGonia joined with lead vocalist Andy Eutsler, drummer Adam Hagerman, fiddle player Cory Shultz, and rhythm guitarist Danny Bell to complete the lineup. Originally a Western swing band, with the addition of each new band member’s diverse musical experiences, LiveWire expanded their focus to include a vast repertoire of whatever was popular on the radio dial at the time. That commercial appeal made the band a hot commodity. 
Soon, the lure of the open road called and LiveWire began traveling from coast-to-coast, performing in club venues in almost every state across America. Building on their reputation as a top-shelf live act, they began opening for a “Who’s Who’ of Country music and had the opportunity to appear in front of a national television audience as finalists in the Colgate Country Showdown, where they performed on the hallowed stage of the Ryman Auditorium, in Nashville. They also tapped into the natural songwriting talents of Eutsler and Bell, and began to express the true artistry that it takes to build a successful career in music.
Edgy, honest and passionate, LiveWire’s unique sound is perfectly captured on their self-titled national debut EP, co-produced in Nashville by engineer/producer, Bart Pursley (Gretchen Wilson/Big & Rich), DeGonia and Justin Woods. Their original songs are infused with the kind of lyrical honesty and expert musicianship that can only be forged through years of shared personal experiences and hardships. Blending elements of working man’s Country and rootsy Southern Rock, themes of the common man resound in their Ozark Mountain firebrand music. It’s about real life: good times, hard times, poverty, love, loss, family, spirituality, death and redemption.
