Brick’s Wynward is a rising Alternative Rock star on the Jersey Rock scene. The recently reborn band is known for putting on powerful, driving performances and pumping out meticulously crafted compositions. Drawing influence from the likes of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and The Foo Fighters, the group would have no trouble fitting in the Seattle Music scene of the late 80’s/early 90’s. At the same time Wynward is not shy about sporting it’s Metal edge, inspired by a certain San Francisco-based group known for spending time in Old Bridge.
Wynward is serious about their music, but they don’t always take themselves seriously. If you ever happen to catch their alter-ego, Lazer Scorpyon, you’ll know what I mean.
Wynward’s debut album “Tides” is out now. It is an excellent effort that makes a serious statement about the group’s presence on the scene. You can score a copy of the LP now at wynwardnj.com.
Don’t miss Wynward at the FINAL Jersey Rock Showcase of the season at River Rock in Brick on Thursday ⅜.
