The Pacific Northwest husband and wife songwriters perform bluesy, roots music that is dynamic, not ordinary and crosses musical traditions. Americana’s breadth is as deep as it is wide. Guitarist JT Wise and bassist wife Maggie Wise write compelling songs that are topped with layers of talented musicianship.

Songs can be heartfelt, fun and quirky or reflect the world events that can’t be ignored. Examples include Revel Children, Rosa Lee, Aunt Irene, Ballad of Danford Balch, and Troublesome. They are inspiring musicians with vocal harmonies, improvisation and toe tapping rhythms.

JT has a distinctive guitar style and tone giving them a signature sound. His influences read like a Crossroads Festival running the full spectrum of the great guitarists and beyond. They include Garcia, Clapton, Betts and Knopfler with a little Robben Ford and Billy Gibbons thrown in. They are able to stretch out on a song in the tradition of the great jam bands taking the song where ever it may lead. They perform several covers at each show including the Grateful Dead.

They have performed at both large and small venues with their duo and band. Under their belt is the Portland 5’s Music on Main Street, Kink Noon Tunes, park concerts, Gresham Art Festival and Music Mondays, Kink Noon Tunes, Tualatin Crawfish Festival, Sandy Mountain Festival, Vancouver and Oregon City Brew Festivals, Music Millennium, and Cascade Blues Association events. They are regulars at Mcmenamins, Skamania Lodge; Maryhill winery; and many other popular NW venues. The great DJ Steve Pringle played the bands tunes on Kink radio. He said on air that the JT Wise band was one of his favorites. It was an honor to have him visit the band at their show.
