No frills, whistles or egos to feed, Webster’s Wheel are just two southern folk from the rolling hills of Alabama spreading good messages better than maw maw’s scuppernong jam. Their poetry and southern charm are a surefire heart revival with a sound lost in time and revived by harmonies tight as a bow string, like if Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings had twins reared up by Mother Maybelle Carter.
The eternal quilt that is Webster’s Wheel was stitched together by Daniel Lee Webster and Marie Robertson. Daniel and Marie played their first songs together in a little country barn with 10 chickens, 3 dogs, and a 50 sq ft vegetable garden. There was no way for them to know then that their heavenly harmonies and ear to the ground lyricism would go on to be described as “incredible,” “groundbreaking” and “unmissable” by today’s foremost indie reviewers.
The duo has toured many a hither and yond around the southeast from the mountains of Virginia to the far shores of Florida and across the Louisiana swamps. They’ve released three LPs in a year’s time and are now gearing up for four, five, and six. Come January 2022, they’ll be releasing their newest video project, a 9-part mini series featuring Alabama historic places and original songs performed by Webster’s Wheel.
If poetry and tight harmony stir your sweet tea while it’s cookin, IndieShark Music Magazine says, “It’s hard to avoid getting lost in the sonic gaze generated by these two when they’re clicking like nobody’s business.” So come as you are. Leave better or the same. Gratitude is the attitude.
