Zach Pietrini’s Midwestern, indie-americana songwriting aesthetic is the sonic embodiment of a well-worn denim jacket. At the forefront of the Americana resurgence, the band takes its cues from Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and David Ramirez, reinterpreting and rejuvenating American roots styles through a contemporary lens. Pietrini came up on the Chicago music scene before moving to Milwaukee, where he honed his signature “foot-tapping and pensive steel-guitar-driven” style (Milwaukee Magazine). The band has also toured prolifically throughout the United States, including opening for Huey Lewis and the News and playing SXSW. Pietrini’s dynamic live performances are intimate, yet high-energy, and his laid-back stage presence brings a very Wisconsin sense of genuine friendliness to his shows.
The band is touring this fall on its new LP, Rock & Roll is Dead.
