Note Book Sessions: Wax Wings

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 N Main Street Gainesville, FL 32601 USA (map)

Third House Books & Coffee, in conjunction with Supermoon Sound and OKAY GOOD Media, present Wax Wings!

Wax Wings is an original compositional folk-rock quintet from Gainesville, featuring Brian Turk on upright bass, Andrew Cook on fiddle, John David Eriksen on cello, Mike Dorsey on drums, and multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Chelsea Carnes. Wax Wings weaves various threads of influence ranging from folk-punk to classical into a unique tapestry of inimitable harmony. With distinctively forceful vocals, Carnes captivates with relatable lyrics about friendship and loss. The results are strikingly textured and sincere compositions that both inspire and haunt. Their wide appeal has seen them playing venues ranging from Gasparilla Music Fest to the The Florida Folk Festival.

"...a finely textured yet upbeat and bouncing mix of chamber folk, gypsy-swing, ragtime jazz and kicking punk-country marked by the confessional lyrics and strong sonorous lead vocals of Chelsea Carnes." -Creative Loafing Tampa

"...enthusiastic and inspiring music that can make even the most jaded concertgoer blush with excitement." -The Gainesville Sun

"...real lyrical poignancy" -Our Town Magazine

"...affecting, personal Gainesville chamber-grass" -The Tampa Bay Times
