Early 2014 brought the release of the first Wedgewood Brothers’ original music. Their self-titled debut, “Wedgewood Brothers,” shows the Brothers’ history as a variety band with songs that have varying influences. While the album is most easily described as southern rock, it is populated with elements of modern rock, blues rock, and country. The three guitars line up offers strong rhythms, layered riffs, and beautiful guitar harmonies. When layered with a driving rhythm section and complementary keys “Wedgewood Brothers” shows its instrumental complexity, which is matched by strong vocal leads and rich harmonies.
