LiveWire has long been bringing crowds to their feet and have performed in almost every state across America where they honed their reputation as a top shelf touring band. Along the way, they have opened for a “Who’s Who” of Country stars, including Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Mark Chesnutt, Kix Brooks and Texas/Red Dirt acts such as The Departed, Casey Donahew Band, Brandon Jenkins, Kyle Park and Bo Phillips, among many others. LiveWire’s unique sound blends elements of working man’s Country and rootsy Southern Rock. Themes of the common man resound in their firebrand music with songs about real life: good times, hard times, poverty, love, loss, family, spirituality, death and redemption. LiveWire’s edgy, honest and passionate music has struck a chord with fans, and at radio, in the U.S., Europe and beyond. Their videos have received airplay on CMT Pure, ZUUS Country, The Nashville Network, Yallwire and elsewhere. Major media outlets including Billboard, Music News Nashville, Maverick Magazine, MusicRow and the Texas Music Chart have all touted their talents. LiveWire features lead singer/acoustic guitarist Andy Eutsler, lead guitarist/harmony vocalist Bobby DeGonia, fiddle/harmony vocalist, Cory Shultz, drummer, Brad Allen, and pedal steel/guitar/banjo player, Scott Kwapiszeski. They are joined in the studio and onstage by bassist, Paul Carabello. LiveWire’s turn as national finalists in the Colgate Country Showdown, performing to a nationwide television audience from the stage of the Ryman Auditorium, was a milestone moment which spurred the band to write, record and release their self-titled EP in 2011. It spawned their debut single, “Tater Fed,” a stirring backwoods rocker that gained the attention of critics, radio and fans. On the heels of that exposure, LiveWire signed with Way Out West Records, a powerhouse indie label with offices in Oklahoma and Nashville. Shortly after LiveWire’s hometown of Joplin, MO was devastated by an EF-5 tornado in the spring of 2011, the band released a single and video for “Miracle of the Human Spirit,” with proceeds benefiting the rebuilding efforts. LiveWire released their national debut album, LIVIN,’ in 2012, bringing the band widespread critical acclaim. LIVIN’ produced the hit singles, “Lies” and “Whiskey Sunday,” the latter of which earned them a nomination for “New Duo/Band/Group of the Year” at the 2014 Texas Regional Radio Music Awards. This was followed by the massively popular hit single and video, “Drivin’ You Outta My Mind.” Their current single, “Quit You,” to be included on their forthcoming EP, is showing solid, early indicators for very strong and continued success. In today’s competitive music market, you have to blaze your own trail. LiveWire is doing just that.
