Achilles Wheel is a high energy Roots and World music/Rock and Roll band from Nevada City/Placerville California, featuring award winning songwriting played on numerous stringed instruments and twin drum kits with other assorted percussion. 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. With the release of their 3rd studio recording ‘Devil In The Yard’, which is currently getting airplay nationwide as well as in Europe, Achilles Wheel further dispels the myth that jam oriented bands can’t write great songs. The quality of the band’s songwriting combined with stunning musicianship earned them spots at the last 2 year’s California Worldfest shows, The Strawberry Music festival, The Redwood Mountain Faire, The Redwood Ramble, Dead On The Creek, Railroad Earth’s Hangtown Halloween and a sold out show at Sierra Nevada Big Room in Chico, California. , you can surely expect another ‘live’ CD release later in the summer to capture some of these shows. The fiery 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.
Achilles Wheel is looking forward to dates at Kate Wolf Music festival this year as part of our CD Release Tour to support our 3rd studio effort “Devil In The Yard.”
