A Wu Li Conspiracy
A Wu Li Conspiracy Born out of cramped dorm rooms 8 years ago A Wu Li Conspiracy began making music among high stacks of amps and books. What has evolved is an intelligent, touching blend of folk and rock. They are a band of musicians who aren't concerned with the latest arm band donning, cover playing, eye liner wearing trends. This group is more focused on performing great songs that can be believed in and playing with passion and honesty - important songs that are of a deeply personal nature. Originally a five member musical incarnation called The Dancing Wu Li Masters, current musicians include guitarist/vocalist Jeff Breakey, guitarist/harmonica player/vocalist John Elstad, vocalist Andrea Restivo, and percussionist Stephanie Levi (also know for her work with 8 Inch Betsy). Through the years Jeff and John have exchanged the clever bounce that characterized their early work for deeper, more tender music. The result is a concoction of influences stretching from Townes Van Zandt to the Black Keys to Mazzy Star to Radiohead and beyond. They continue to balance Jeff's acoustic guitar and songwriting ability with John's blues inspired riffs to create songs with both heart and teeth. Add in Andrea's beautiful, weightless voice and A Wu Li Conspiracy gives the audience something truly original.
