The Original Waysiders
Cleveland, Ohio based acoustic troubadours, The Original Waysiders, defy being pigeonholed, and celebrate the fact that each songs tells a story and in a style all its own. On their self-titled debut album you'll find songs of universal resonance that are accessible, yet never dumbed down. Born of a need to write and perform original music across multiple genres you'll find them moving seamlessly from folk, to bluegrass, to blues, to doo wop, to piano ballads, to you name it. Yet it all manages to sound cohesive -- "strangely familiar" as one fan called it -- and all part of the experience.
“The Original Waysiders were driving the crowd with their intoxicating mix of Americana, Blues, Folk and Bluegrass stylings. Delivering an impressive repertoire of powerful originals, pickled by the occasional cover, they drew the listener into the fold of their instrumental musings and incited inspiration for more.”
