London, United Kingdom
Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5-piece modern-folk Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers, draw listeners in with energy, originality and soulful generosity. Youthful and professionally trained, these young men captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show and have created a buzz for themselves with their unplugged, off-stage encores and propensity for performing self-titled, “restSTOMPS” - free acoustic sets at rest & truck stops along their tour routes. The band’s debut album, produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX, is available now, wherever music is sold.

1st time seeing the band live and 1st time at Caffe Lena. The music was fantastic! Loved the band's musicality. They looked like they were having fun the whole time and I loved it! Caffe Lena was a little odd with the seating, but the sound was good and the atmosphere was good
