Joltwagon is rollicking sonic grit and melody. The four-piece band from Asheville, North Carolina, is forging it's own blend of Americana with intriguing songwriting, soaring guitar work, and old-time banjo. While captivating with it's pop sensibility and harmonies, the group moves effortlessly from straight country to gypsy/klezmer instrumentals to haunting psychedelia. As listeners are swept along in an eclectic mosaic of sound, they might imagine Crazy Horse meets John Hartford with a little Jayhawks on the side. Alternicana? Eclecticana? Any way you'd like to put it, Joltwagon is quite a ride. Reviews: 'Brilliant debut Americana CD mixing pop harmonies with superb playing and song-writing.' - Maverick Magazine, October 2007 'Joltwagon just dropped it's eponymous debut CD, a whip-smart country-rock collection with enough minor-key excursions and exotic instrumentation (including klezmer clarinet and 'speaking in tongues') to foretell a fine future.' - Mountain Xpress, May 23, 2007.
