The Womacks are a unique Americana Folk/Rock quartet from north-central Ohio. Although only two members of the group actually share blood, they consider themselves a close-knit family. They are brother and sister, Noah and Haley Heyman, with longtime friends Cory Webb and Tony Schaffer. All of the Womack’s live together in the same rural home and this closeness, aside from 150+ performances a year, has turned their recordings and performances into a tightly woven musical experience.
Since their debut in 2010 The Womacks have captivated audiences all over the eastern U.S. with their spot on three part vocal harmony, tight musicianship, and neo-classic songwriting. Fan remarks often include phrases like “…I left (the show) feeling inspired…” and “…a breath of fresh air”. Reviewers are saying that “…The Womack Family Band has revived the spirit of vintage rock music and introduced it to the grandchildren of folk and jazz” and “The group’s live performances have the potential to become the stuff of legend”. If one were to look among the audience at a Womack show they’ll see 14 year olds toe-tapping and dancing amidst 30 and 60 year olds, proving that no matter what era of music you grew up with The Womack’s have a song for you.
While it’s true that listeners will hear variance in the “Womack sound”, reviewers are saying that the music is still “…distinctly Americana…” and “…a deft mix of American roots, Folk, and Rock music.” In concert the WFB gives the audience a chance to hear beautiful three part vocal harmony and sincere lyrical insights on life as well as high-energy musical passages reminiscent of the days of tie-dye and vinyl. A live show review said “One never knows quite what to expect, and that makes every musical turn as fresh and thrilling as the next”.
The Womac’s will be touring all over the eastern U.S. and are set to release their 4th studio album in 2014.
