The music of Will Overman Band, call it "amped-up folk rock", is as energetic as it is passionate. The Charlottesville, Va based band has a unique sound that can be both haunting and evocative, yet sincere and sweet.
Musically and lyrically, the band draws from its Virginia roots, producing a rare combination of enticing harmony and straight-ahead, hard-charging rhythm and riffs. Or, as one fan put it, “hearty as a home-cooked Southern meal.”
The band is composed of Overman, on guitar and vocals; Daniel McCarthy, guitar; Brittney Wagner on guitar and vocals; J Wilkerson on bass; and Camry Harris on drums. Drawing comparisons to The Avetts and Jason Isbell, the band carries an unwavering commitment to its music — and to its fans. That music and those lyrics, as the Huffington Post wrote, seem to draw “ … from the experiences of someone much older”, as is evident in their new single “All I Say”.
