Oakland, California’s Tumbleweed Wanderers are high school friends that combine soul, folk, and rock and roll to create a hugely dynamic musical experience. They weave through shows with smooth transitions, bringing the listener from dark chaotic banjo-rock, through intimate acoustic harmonies, to energetic explosions of soul.
Just formed in April of 2011, they have been able to bring their electric shows to an increasingly wider audience. Starting at small bars and cafes, to quickly becoming a major local headliner, selling out shows at the California Bay Area’s best venues. Since recording their debut full-length album, they have entered a period of near constant touring, starting on the West Coast, but now including all of North America. It won't be long until they become a staple at many major music festivals.
Tumbleweed Wanderers recorded their debut album, So Long, at indie rocker John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco, with Vanderslice himself producing the album.
