Joltwagon is rollicking sonic grit and melody. The four-piece band from Asheville, North Carolina, is forging its own blend of Americana with intriguing songwriting, soaring guitar work, and old-time banjo. While captivating with its pop sensibility and harmonies, the group moves effortlessly from straight country to gypsy/klezmer instrumentals to haunting psychedelia. As listeners are swept along in an eclectic mosaic of sound, they might imagine Crazy Horse meets John Hartford with a little Jayhawks on the side. Alternicana? Eclecticana? Any way you''d like to put it, Joltwagon is quite a ride.
"Joltwagon just dropped its eponymous debut CD, a whip-smart country-rock collection with enough minor-key excursions and exotic instrumentation (including klezmer clarinet and "speaking in tongues") to foretell a fine future." - Mountain Xpress, May 23, 2007
"Joltwagon ... were quite good. Any band that does a good Camper Van Beethoven cover is automatically okay in my book. Joltwagon played through the night, and I should say, if you haven''t seen these guys, you should!" -BlogAsheville
"First, we''ll state the obvious: Joltwagon absolutely made the nerdfest cool. T''aints were successfully rocked off. We''re just now getting early reports in, but we''re sure that the t''aint replacement surgeons in town will be kept busy this week. Thank you, Joltwagon. You guys were great. Come back next year?"- Ashvegas
