Audio Landscapes: Sean and Zander

Content originally published on SSGMusic.com May 25, 2012.

The 2012 edition of Washington’s Sasquatch Festvial kicked off with roots act Zander Schloss and Sean Wheeler.

Holding court over the diminutive Yeti Stage, Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss presented a set of roots steeped Americana. While the duo of Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss may be somewhat newer on the Americana/Roots scene as a duo, they are by no means young bucks in the music world. Wheeler, the former vocalist of Throw Rag, teamed up with Schloss, one time member of the Circle Jerks, Weirdos and a Joe Strummer collaborator, to create a hybrid of folk, country, pop, ragtime, bluegrass and gospel that includes all the frenzied energy and spirit of the duo’s aforementioned bands. The band served as a great entrance to a festival that this year is steeped in the roots tradition.
