Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, Herbert Wiser is a powerhouse quartet that pulls influences from the worlds of funk, jazz, jam, reggae, and rock and roll to create their own genre bending sound that inevitably leads listeners to the dance floor. While steeped in the jamband world of improvisation, Wiser never forgets the crucial element of the song. Talented song crafting keeps the band focused and in a deep groove while allowing room for live jamming that continues to impress crowds across the Midwest. Herbert Wiser features the breakbeat stylings of Kyle â€œKobrakaiâ€ Davis on drums, the funk dropping bass of Matt Bradford, the virtuoso keyboard work of Ryan Chamlin, and the talented tone of Josh Crowley on guitar.
After spending much of the band's short history touring the US (with stops in L.A., Seattle, Austin, Portland & Chicago), lending their music to TV & quickly earning a reputation for their haunting arrangements & blistering live performances, Milktooth returned home to Nashville, TN to record their sophomore EP, Wild Before Our Eyes.
The young indie rock band's sound has been hailed as "mesmerizing" by NPR, "vast & unexpected" by New York Minute Magazine & "infectious" by The Dallas Observer & has drawn comparisons to such critical darlings as The Walkmen, Arcade Fire & Wild Beasts. Wild Before Our Eyes was produced by Tom Laune (R.E.M., Alex Chilton) & mastered in Montreal, QC by Harris Newman (Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade).
