When our band plays live, Jenn plays guitar and sings and Andy plays the drums and keyboard and sings. When we record, Andy and Jenn sing and play all the instruments, although each of us play some things better than others.After finishing a tour with Shearwater in Austin on September 4th, Baltimore's Wye Oak will play shows all over the country including one at Union Hall in Brooklyn on September 24th with The Lisps and El May. Tickets are on sale. All dates below...
Many people have said that our album sounds lush, layered and full, and that we do a pretty good job of capturing that sound on stage, although there are just two of us. We'd like to think that if a song is good enough, it'll stand on its own regardless of how much noise you pile on top. On the other hand, we do like noise.
