“Wandering” into town on XXX, is Chicago-based alt-folk/Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers. This 5-piece act, headlined by Austin Thompson and 18 year old Collin Krause a duo who started touring together at the young ages of 14 and 17, displays an impressive brand of youthful energy and enthusiasm that draws concert goers in immediately.
Playing, performing and writing together for just over 2 years, the Wanderers have built an enthusiastic and fast-growing following across the country, earning Deli Magazine’s Readers Choice title of “Chicago’s Best Emerging Artist, 2014.”
Youthful and professionally trained, these young men captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show and have created a buzz for themselves with their unplugged, off-stage encores and propensity for performing self-titled, “restSTOMPS” – free acoustic sets at rest & truck stops along their tour routes.
The band’s debut EP, “Path to Follow” and their newest live EP, “Wellspring” is available wherever music is sold. The band’s first full-length album is due to release in early 2016.
