The Steel Wheels
The Steel Wheels
Hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, The Steel Wheels are familiar
with the traditions of folk music and how a string band is supposed to sound. In
fact, they’ve been drawing on those steadfast traditions for more than a decade.
Yet, their name also evokes a sense of forward motion, which is clearly reflected
in their latest album, Wild As We Came Here.

The Steel Wheels recorded their album in rural Maine, where producer Sam
Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Josh Ritter) owns a recording studio inside a
renovated farmhouse from the 18th century. All four band members – Trent
Wagler (guitar, banjo), Eric Brubaker (fiddle), Brian Dickel (upright bass) and Jay
Lapp (mandolin) – hunkered down for a week and a half to create Wild As We
Came Here.

The band’s name is a tip of the hat to steam-powered trains, industrial progress
and the buggies of their Mennonite lineage. Their musical style weaves through
Americana and bluegrass, folk and old-time music, and the acoustic poetry of the
finest singer-songwriters. By incorporating percussion and keyboards into their
recording sessions for the first time, Wild As We Came Here adds new textures
to their catalog, as themes of discovery and perseverance run throughout the
collection.
