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 A.P. Carter and Johnny Cash as it is to the forward-thinking rock & roll of Wilco 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. They come out with an on time rhythm section that is a good as it gets, both acoustic and electric guitars, as well as dobro, banjo, and lapsteele.
The band 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.
In the time since the band's inception they have gained rather than lost momentum. Over the summer they played an opening act for Outlaw Country Trubadore, Jerry Jeff Walker, at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens for a sold out crowd of 2000. They were honored to be invited to Waycross, GA, to play at the Annual Gram Parson's tribute concert and be a part of his lasting musical legacy. They have been touring regionally as well as continuing to expand their amount of original music. The band is currently rehearsing and fine tuning their new music to be featured on their next full length studio release. Through their touring and recording, The Train Wrecks are climbing to the top one hard hitting live show at a time.
