Achilles Wheel is a high energy roots, rock and world music group from Northern California, featuring award-winning songwriting played on numerous stringed instruments and the rhythmic earthquake of two full drum sets. In the wake of their breakout performance at the 2012 Kate Wolf Music Festival, the band has been firing up stages and dance floors all across California. Their new CD “Stones to Sand” was released this summer and fully embodies the exciting musical growth Achilles Wheel is experiencing. They earned a spot at the 2014 California Worldfest through a “fan choice” vote, were invited to play this year’s Strawberry Music Festival, and their repeat performance at the Kate Wolf Festival is still being talked about.
The epicenter of Achilles Wheel’s sound is Jonny Mojo on lead guitar and vocals, surrounded by Paul Kamm and Shelby Snow on rhythm, bass and vocals, and Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and vocals. As original songs go, Achilles Wheel’s will stay with you long after the excitement of the show is over. These writers have been acknowledged by many of the biggest music festivals in the country including Kerrville Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival. Two of their songs, “Got A Tattoo” and “Let the Dream Begin,” have been recognized in the “Race to TRI” song contest, the premier audio/video production studio run by Bob Weir.
If you love to dance and celebrate life, come see an Achilles Wheel show and make a joyful noise.
