WAGNER THE BAND
With the album "Awkward Hearts" the Austrian singer and songwriter Rainer Wagner presents his first solo album under the stage name Wagner the Band.
The music is a captivating mix of Soul, Funk, Blues and elemental Rock, or simply, as the band members describe it: Soul Rock. The earthy songs are brand new and yet sound familiar, like the soundtrack of our lives.
They are reminiscent of the greats of American music of the last decades.
The lyrics tell straight from love - the longed for, the won, the lived and the lost.
The first single "Beast of Joy", an energetic funk-rock song, has already been released and earned the band benevolent reviews.
