The Way Down Wanderers are equal parts fast-paced and soulful. This five-piece modern-folk Americana act draws listeners in with energy, originality and generosity. Playing, performing and writing together for just three years, the Wanderers have built an enthusiastic and fast-growing following. They captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show. The band’s debut album was produced by Mike Marsh (Avett Brothers) and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX.

Front-men and founders, Austin Thompson and Collin Krause, met in their hometown of Peoria, IL, when they joined the same folk band and embarked on their first tour at the ages of 14 and 18 years old. The two became fast friends and soon began writing music together, ultimately forming The Way Down Wanderers when Collin was 16 and Austin was 20 years old.

Thompson is heard on guitar, lead and harmony vocals as well as percussion in the studio. Krause plays mandolin, fiddle and sings lead and harmony vocals for the band. John Merikoski plays drums, and percussion. John Williams performs on upright bass and adds his vocals to the mix. Banjo and fiddle are Travis Kowalsky’s forte.
