Achilles Wheel is a high energy Roots and World music/Rock and Roll band from Nevada City, California, featuring award-winning songwriting played on numerous stringed instruments and more drums than you can shake a stick at. In the wake of their breakout performance at the 2012 Kate Wolf Music Festival, the band has been burning up stages all across California ever since. At this first full-band performance in Redding, the band will display their talents in both acoustic and electric formats.
With the release of their 3rd studio recording Devil in the Yard, which is currently getting airplay nationwide as well as in Europe, Achilles Wheel further dispels the myth that jam-oriented bands cant write great songs. The quality of the bands songwriting combined with stunning musicianship has earned them spots at Californias Worldfest, The Strawberry Music Festival, The Redwood Mountain Faire, The Redwood Ramble, Railroad Earths Hangtown Halloween, Great American Music Hall and sold out shows at Phil Leshs Terrapin Crossroads and the Sierra Nevada Brewery Big Room.
The fiery epicenter of Achilles Wheels sound is Jonny Mojo on lead guitar and vocals, surrounded by Paul Kamm and Shelby Snow on rhythm, bass and vocals, and Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and vocals. New member and keyboardist, Ben Jacobs, has played with Poor Mans Whisky, Grateful Bluegrass Boys and Rusty Stringfield.
And as original songs go, Achilles Wheels are some of the most accessible around and will stay with you long after the excitement of the show is over. These writers have been acknowledged by many of the biggest music festivals in the country including Kerrville, Telluride and Rocky Mtn. Folk. Achilles Wheel has been recognized twice in the Race to TRI song contest, for their songs Got a Tattoo and Let The Dream Begin. Many on the West Coast will recognize TRI Studio as a premier audio/video production studio run by ex-Grateful Dead rhythm guitar player Bob Weir.
