Wye Oak


SONG (MP3): Warning

ALBUM: If Children

FILE UNDER: Indie / Folk

LABEL: Merge Records

INFO: The Wye Oak stood for over 460 years in Wye Mill, Maryland offering shade and protection to those who stood beneath its imposing limbs. The oak became a symbol of Maryland, a small, fiercely independent state with characteristics of Northern stubbornness and just a hint of Southern gentility. Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack chose to name their musical partnership after the symbol of the state whose characteristics they embody.
Jenn and Andy have been playing music together and apart in Baltimore for most of their lives. Andy plays the drums and keyboard and sings while Jenn plays guitar and sings. On stage, they perform with raw energy and sophistication, creating a surprising amount of noise for two people.
