Toad the Wet Sprocket meets Nickel Creek with a hint of Lyle Lovett...
WPA is Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek) and Luke Bulla (Lyle Lovett, Jerry Douglas Band), transformed to an expandable collection of additional WPA members along the road, as individual band member schedules allow.
The band’s sound is really one that needs to be heard as it incorporates influences from so many genres. Check out some of the live video on Youtube or listen at www.wpamusic.com to see why the LA Times wrote, “In songs that pulled equally from country, folk, rock, soul and pop, the group’s sound was dense and full-bodied yet had a clarity that revealed the deep-seated craftiness of WPA’s arrangements. As a veteran of any field knows, it takes years of effort to appear this effortless.”
Works Progress Administration will be in Indianapolis on Dec. 10 at Birdy’s. If you’d like more information visit www.wpamusic.com.
