This is a band comprised of music fans, first and foremost, who share their love for engaging, raucous and authentically effervescent country music. The talented triplet’s most recent single, Roll Like a Banjo, highlights Aces Wyld’s ability to craft songs that go beyond genre; songs that are accessible to anyone who loves music that evokes good times, good memories and good friends. Aces Wyld brings together three exemplary, well-schooled musicians and songwriters who all possess a natural penchant for entertaining. Steve Andrew (lead vocals, keyboard, rhythm guitar), Brett Browatzke (lead guitar), and Sam Derbawka (fiddle, banjo, mandolin, vocals) each bring a unique and diverse repertoire of musical influences to the table, creating an overall sound that is truly cutting-edge country, with a respectful nod to the genre’s vast traditions. “It’s very upbeat, very diverse, with a solid country foundation but it has an original aura to it. When you hear this song and the other songs we’re working on, it’s unlike anything else you would be hearing, and I think that’s because each one of us comes from such different musical background,” Andrew said. What Aces is doing is very progressive. A lot of genres evolve and reform over time and that is happening with country music. This is on the edge of something that is new sounding for country music. It’s a mix of the traditional, with the New Country sound and some Alt-Country, but it still sounds like something fresh. “We make a real effort to engage the crowd and make a connection with them. It’s something we’ve been complemented on by audiences, booking agents and some pretty important people in the country music scene. Listen, we’re basically small town guys who love what we do, love making music and love entertaining people who want to have a good time” said Browatzke.
