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.
