Wood Box Heroes, the newly formed American acoustic super-group, is hardly anything like the bluegrass music you used to find in the cassette player of your grandad’s old chevy pickup truck. Deeply rooted in tradition while melding together an eclectic-array of sounds from the country, bluegrass, blues, jazz, rock, and classical varieties, paired with crafty and authentic songwriting, the band delivers a piercing listening experience that plunges deep into the caverns of the soul, grabs the drowning inner-child by the hand and blissfully makes way to the surface!
Bringing together some of the world’s most highly lauded musicians in Matt Menefee (banjo/Cadillac Sky, Warren Haynes), Seth Taylor (mandolin/Mountain Heart, Dailey & Vincent) and Barry Bales (bass/Alison Krauss & Union Station) backing up the vocal magic of Jenee Fleenor (fiddle/Blake Shelton, Larry Cordle) and Josh Martin (guitar/long-time Nashville songwriter), this unit has over a century of musical seasoning between them. Yet, it is quite astonishing that the years spent on separate roads accompanying a spectrum of incredible artists and receiving some of the most sought-after honors and awards in the business have led to this enigmatic intersection. Currently in the studio working on their debut record due out in 2023, the group is rearing to put on full display the raw talent and out-of-this-world energy that makes them, together, Wood Box Heroes.
