The W Lovers is the trans-Pacific Love story of Fleur (Auckland, New Zealand) and Wesley Wood (Washington State Foothills). Together the couple have crafted a unique brand of wholesome songwriting commonly described as a balanced blend of rustic alt-country and Folk. The Addition of Wesley’s mandolin and banjo reflects a bit of that old-timey feel.
Canyon Wind will be featured on The W Lovers’ debut self titled 12 song album, set to release in May of 2016.
The W Lovers features a full band for both live performances and recordings featuring Eric Van Allan on Upright Bass, Chris Lucier on Drums and Patrick McHenry on Pedal steel, adding an element of warm rhythm and richness in tonal character, making for a beautiful marriage between soundscape and songwriting
“A cultured blend of alt country and Americana that rings of rustic small towns and makes the listener feel warm and at home.”
