If you like hard hitting rock trios then you'll love The Wans. With hints from the 60's all the way to the 90's they've formed their own sound. Tracking the record live to tape in just two days gives the album that raw sound of the 60's & 70's. The trio recently released their record and it has gotten quite the reaction from subscriptions around the world such as NME Magazine, Eleven Rock Magazine as well as love from many music blogs! Not to mention the multiple major network series(ABC's Nashville, USA's Necessary Roughness, A&E's Longmire) that have used their songs.
The Wans evergrowing fan base continue to help spread the word after hearing & seeing the band play live. Their live show's have been dubbed "Electrifying, Energetic & Refreshing" by so many fans & professionals in the music industry.
The Wans picked up their name from Simon's hometown in Ireland. Simon explains it as an "everyday slang term in Derry, Northern Ireland." He goes on to say, "It's pretty much the Irish phonetic spelling of 'The Ones', but the way it's spelled is the way it's pronounced in an Irish accent. So everyone has to pronounce it that way. I find it funny listening to Americans speaking with an Irish accent. I may be the only one who finds it funny, but what the hell! All that matters to us is that the songs are solid and the music is rocking."
The Wans just finished recording their first full length with, Dave Cobb (Shooter Jennings, Waylon Jennings, Jason Isbell, Rival Sons) that's due to be released around Summer. Fans, Blogs & Magazines are anxiously awaiting this full length from the dubbed "Next big thing!" band, The Wans.
