In the words of front man Anthony Crane, Wrong Way, quite simply, pays tribute to the music of Sublime. “We are not trying to imitate Sublime. We are not trying to be Sublime. We are here to pay tribute to this music that we love so much, and we thank you for sharing it with us.”
Wrong Way was formed in Athens, GA in the early 2000’s. Since then, the band has changed shape, location, members, and suffered some tragedy within. However, the passion for the music remains, and the name pushes on.
Wrong Way has, and still does, perform in a wide variety of venues and events. You can find them in your local 500 cap room, or at a festival with tens of thousands in attendance. A hiatus in the early 2010’s has proved to be a setback for the band most recently. Currently regrouping to “catch up” to an online presence, the fire is still in the live show. We hope you’ll get to witness sometime soon.
The music of Sublime lives on. In a very major way. The players of the project (Wrong Way) have been, and continue to be members of the local rock / reggae scene in various original projects. Sublime remains the gospel. “I’m always taken back at the range in age of these audiences that repeat every word of these songs back to us. It’s quite humbling and pretty fascinating.”
Best described as crossover music, Crane has a sound that is all his own. Musical influences range across the board, but most prevalent in his current writing would be Soul, Reggae, R&B, and Pop. Hypothetically, you might find him on tour with Ben Harper, G Love, The Dirty Heads, Citizen Cope, or Allen Stone.
With an average of 250 performances per year, including 5,000-attendee festivals, cruise ships, dive bars, and wing joints, Crane’s motivation in 2016 has been a business-minded focus on “not keeping the band a secret anymore.”
Since the release of the “I Love Women” EP in September of 2014, Crane has toured non-stop. In the midst of a rigorous live performance regime, he’s managed to find himself with a new management team, new content, new material, and writing with even more Grammy Award winners and International-touring artists. We look forward to releasing all of the new music that has been developed since the “I Love Women” EP.
