Band members include Jon Gengle (Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals), Tyler Matock (Guitar, Vocals), Ian Kelman (Guitar, Vocals, Pedal Steel, Lap Steel), Sam Bohlman (Bass), Jesse Gray (Guitar) and Connor Pritchard (Drums).
The band started as an exercise in sonic experimentation. Multiple members came from different musical backgrounds to see what sort of creative synthesis could come from mixing their various songwriting styles. Most of Gus D. Wynns & The Breakers’ songs are structured around a pop sensibility but utilize various soundscapes such as synth pop, acoustic rock, funk and soul to add diversity.
Gus D. Wynns & The Breakers have played alongside notable artists such as Broncho & White Reaper and also performed at music festivals including Tour De Fat, Fried Festival, and Waynefest.
"Their talent is only matched by their ingenuity when it comes to their tonally-diverse hits which carry the perfect amount of nostalgic appeal without trying to revive a sound which has had its time." - Amelia Vandergast (ANR Factory)
SUNEATER was written, performed and recorded during the isolation of the 2020 quarantine as the world shut down. The songs across the EP unfold stories of seclusion under a hot sun, melting together several contrasting ideas for an auditory experience that is both melancholy yet notably joyous.
The latest collection of songs from Gus D. Wynns and The Breakers invoke a thirst for redemption in an unknown future that is void of all borders and boundaries.
SUNEATER was recorded & produced by Jon Gengle at Lemon Studios in Phoenix, Arizona and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering in Chicago, Illinois.
SUNEATER will be released digitally on 1/1/2021 from Wy Records.
