Austin locals, the Wheeler Brothers is an American rock band, with a twist of folk and blues. They are playing not one, but TWO nights at the Parish. The first night they will be supported by Paper Bird, and the second night they will be supported by Tumbleweed Wanderer.
Their first studio album, Portraits, was released in 2011. The Wheeler Brothers’ second album, Gold Boots Glitter, was released on Bismeaux Records in 2013. The Wheeler Brothers have been the supporting act for many bands, including The Avett Brothers. They’ve also played multiple music festivals, including Lollapalooza, Firefly, Newport Folk Festival and our very own SXSW and Austin City Limits.
The Wheeler Brother have appeared on Last Call with Carson Daily and received widespread acclaim from media including, Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, AOL Spinner, The Washington Post, Elmore Magazine and The Austin Chronicle. In addition to their breakthrough in media, Portraits, led them to win the Austin Music Awards at SXSW in 2012. They claimed the titles “Best New Band” and “Best Roots Rock Band.” Band member Nolan Wheeler received “Best Acoustic Guitar,” while Tyler Wheeler received “Best Bass,” and A.J. Molyneaux for “Best Miscellaneous Instrument” for lap steel. Their label (Bismeaux Records) claimed “Best Record Label.”
The Wheeler Brothers’ lead vocalist stated, “We consider the listeners our extended family. We want people to feel like they’re a part of our music. To have their support is the most powerful thing in the world. They’ve brought us here, and they’ll be a part of this family forever.”
