Los Angeles’ WYO (by way of Jackson, Wyoming) makes cinematic music inspired by frontman Andy Sorge’s home state of Wyoming. Taking inspiration from the imposing landscapes and majestic mountains he grew up around, singer-songwriter Andy Sorge utilizes an organic instrument palette to create the soundscape that is WYO. After attending film school in New York, Andy met multi-instrumentalist, Scott McKay Gibson, and the two retreated to Wyoming and began delving into Andy’s original songs that would soon become their debut album, Untamed. Released in early 2018, WYO teamed up with veteran Los Angeles-based producer, Brad Wood (Smashing Pumpkins, Pete Yorn, Ben Lee), to provide a fresh ear to finalize the LP. After a successful debut release, WYO is preparing to release their sophomore album Changes in 2019, which further explores their panoramic sound. A sound that has led to sharing the stage with Robert Earl Keen, Avi Buffalo, The Fruit Bats and WhiteHorse, and playing venues like The Peppermint Club, House of Blues, Viper Room, State fairs in San Diego and Wyoming, as well as Genius Loci Festival in Mexico. In addition to performing as WYO, Andy and Scott frequently compose music for documentaries, commercials, and short films together. Perhaps this explains the reason that WYO’s music has a way of evoking such striking visuals that stir the imagination. WYO embodies the search for a place that’s alive and wild. It’s an endeavor that deals with love, loss, and constant exploration. It’s a tale of reconciling city life with the unyielding need to retreat to nature’s gravitational pull.
A rock and roll spirit with a soulful tone, she holds nothing back from her audience and leaves everything on the stage. Raised in Southern California, Nicole has developed her sound on stages all across Los Angeles, from the Satellite, to Harvard and Stone, Resident LA, and Hotel Cafe. Last year, she had the honor of opening for Lauren Ruth Ward at the Echo, playing the LA Weekly Live Music Stage at the Chinese New Year Festival, and playing the Buzzbands LA Stage at Echo Park Rising. Nicole draws from influences in classic rock, folk, and musical theatre and is currently wrapping up her first studio album, titled ‘Matte Black.’ Her melodies are musical cathedrals, with lyrics that both cut and heal. Her songs are fearless reminders that rock and roll was born in the rhythm, and the blues.
