Press/Quotes:

Winner: Best New Band, Best Roots Rock, Best Bass Player, Best Acoustic Guitar, Best Lap Steel
-2012 Austin Music Awards

“One of Austin most exciting up and coming bands… It’s Austin’s music at its finest. Rock & roll with a bit of twang, this is Wheeler Brothers.”
Carson Daly, Last Call with Carson Daly

“…mixing country rock guitars with warm, rootsy vocals. Portraits stakes out ground somewhere in the vast space between Band of Horses and the Avett Brothers.”
Austin American Statesman

“Through 11 fiery roots-influenced cuts, the Brothers bare their songwriting chops with an addictive sense of bravado and cerebral storytelling… Seemingly a bottomless pit of musical vision, Portraits is a debut that shows this band’s melodic wellspring already bubbling over.”
Elmore Magazine

“…ball-of-fire Americana and fueled by expansive musical backgrounds…” “…best new local act?”
Austin Chronicle

“Wheeler Brothers are a rough-and-tumble tribe from Austin, Texas… they chug their guitars with the gusto of a locomotive…”
AOL Spinner

“Rooted in the many shades of Americana, the Austin-based quintet isn’t afraid of borrowing from the past and joins an increasing number of groups such as the Head and the Heart and Fleet Foxes in carving a new sound into indie’s vast sonic landscape.”
Washington Post

“If you whisk together Americana country, indie folk and a smidgen of that murky rock vibe so prevalent in today’s national scene, you’ll come up with Austin’s Wheeler Brothers… an accomplished debut album… Tracks such as the wistfully dramatic “Save the Nightly (Too Young)” and the panoramic title cut showcase the panoramic artistic breadth of this group.” – Dallas Morning News

“The Wheeler Brothers know that you like to kick back under an old oak tree after a long day of toil and trouble and have a beer–and they’re making music to capture just that feeling.”
Austinist.com

“[Wheeler Brothers’] growing popularity has resulted in an upsurge in touring and with our close proximity to their home base in Austin, we are bound to start seeing their name on the marquees of local clubs with increasing frequency.”
Dallas Observer

“The Wheeler Brothers are one of the most exciting bands breaking out of Texas. The five-piece act composed of Austin natives combines the gutsy indie vibe of the modern central Texas music scene with the longing strains of time-honored Texas folk.”
San Diego Reader

“[Wheeler Brothers] created more than a crisp, fiery Americana indie-rock five-piece; they created a band of brothers… Portraits supports songs like “Mississippi” and “Call Me In The Morning” boast rock driven rhythms, pseudo-distorted guitar riffs and fronted, clear vocals.”
TheDeliMagazine.com Austin

“It’s rare to find an introductory album that creates such an immediate impression… with their knack for crafting exuberant melodies, this Austin-based outfit proves they can rock relentlessly without negating any subtler nuances.” – NoDepression.com

“Catch them soon so you can say, ‘I saw them when…!’”
