Wyrmwood is an eclectic rock band from Omaha, NE. Drawing influences from Americana folk tradition, British progressive rock, and psychedelic music spanning the last 50+ years, they create a moving original blend filled with intricate compositions, lush harmonies, and searing leads that will strum your heartstrings and melt your face at the same time. Their debut EP, “House on a Hill,” is set to be released on October 7th, and this event is the party to celebrate!
The band was birthed from the pandemic in early 2021 as a new project for singer/songwriter Cole Eisenmenger (Mr. E & the Stringless Kite, New Agency, The North Fork). Omaha local staples Brandon Bakke (drums, vocals), Brian Curtis (bass, vocals), Kevin Sullivan (keys, mellotron, vocals), and Matt Ehlinger (pedal steel, lead guitar) joined to embellish a collection of songs Eisenmenger had written mainly in the first year of COVID pandemic. In June of 2022, Lincoln guitarist Tom Adelman (Midland Band, MrMc$, Pure Brown) joined the band, adding a virtuosic, electric edge.
Wyrmwood has developed an organic sound—as down to earth as it is airy. You may be reminded of the darker hues of Pink Floyd and King Crimson esque prog, as well as the art rock of Peter Gabriel. You may also catch hints of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. Or the old timey songwriting of Robert Hunter/Jerry Garcia. Wyrmwood sounds fresh and original through and through—inspired by the great songwriters/composers of the past without being derivative.
