Achilles Wheel is a high energy Roots and World music/Rock and Roll California band that blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots Rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia. Featuring award-winning songwriting played on numerous stringed instruments and more drums than you can shake a stick at. In the wake of their breakout performance at the 2012 Kate Wolf Music Festival, the band has been burning up stages all across California ever since. Achilles Wheel dispels the myth that jam oriented bands can’t write great songs. The quality of the band’s songwriting combined with stunning musicianship has earned them spots at California’s Worldfest, The Strawberry Music Festival, The Redwood Mountain Faire, The Redwood Ramble, Railroad Earth’s Hangtown Halloween, Great American Music Hall and sold out shows at Terrapin Crossroads and the Sierra Nevada Brewery Big Room.
Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. Their idealism is not diminished by the harsh light of the modern world as we struggle to live free and have a good time… and in the end – hopefully make a difference. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times, the here and now.
