Introducing….. The Train Wrecks

From their site

Savannah, Ga.’s own local-boys-done-good, The Train Wrecks offer up raucous and rollicking Americana that’s as equally indebted to the traditionalist legacies of Hank Sr. and Johnny Cash as it is to the forward-thinking rock & roll of Hank III and Lucero. Local reviewers have been “blown away” by the band’s live shows, and the Wrecks have been officially dubbed “The Hardest Gigging Band in Savannah”, a testament to the love and dedication they have for their music.

The band recently completed the recording of their debut CD “Whiskey & War”, and released it in the fall of 2007. The reviews rolled in! The Connect dubbed the record “simply a revelation….the kind of simultaneously slick and raw record which Ryan Adams regularly cranks out to much critical acclaim”, while Murmur Magazine called it the “best record to come out of Savannah in years”.

This CD was selected by TAXI and the editors of Billboard Magazine to participate in the Disc Makers’ Independent Music World Series Southeast in Atlanta, GA. Of the 2,000 bands/artists who submitted an entry, The Train Wrecks were selected as the best Americana band. “Saddle Up” is the band’s second full length album that is slated for release in early 2011. The pre prelease has the critics saying it, “is a take-no-prisoners set of electric (and electrifying) story- songs”.

In the time since the band’s inception they have opened for legendary guitarist, B.B. King, as well as Outlaw Country Troubadour, Jerry Jeff Walker, both to a sold out crowd. TheTrain Wrecks have been a featured band at many festivals including the Annual Gram Parson’s tribute as well as opening for Eddie Money at the Tybee Island Pirate Festival. They were voted the best Southern rock/ Country Band by the Connect Savannah in 2009 and 2010.

Jason Bible (guitar, voice, harmonica) is an award-winning singer-songwriter hailing from Ft. Worth, TX. South Carolina-raised Markus Kuhlmann (drums, voice) and Savannah native Eric Dunn (elec. bass, upright bass, voice), and Alabama born Stuart Harmening (dobro, banjo, guitar) have played both locally and nationally gaining the attention of any audience they play in front of. All four bring their own unique perspective and talents to the table to create a singular musical vision, one that they hope to bring to as many people as possible as they continue to tour tirelessly and passionately.
