We’ve got another great premiere for you today, this one comes to us from Costa Mesa-based indie “high octane” Americana-folk band Ted Z and The Wranglers, called “Broken.”
Ted’s catchy story-songs are fully-realized tales of love, regret, getting older, and getting in trouble. The band stirs up its Americana influences, featuring quick picking and bluesy slide guitar over galloping train beats and swinging shuffles. In the span of a few years, Ted Z and the Wranglers have become one of Southern California’s most compelling and sought after Americana roots musical collectives.
The Wranglers are Dan Mages (bass), Mike Myers (drums, vocals), and Jackson Leverone (lead and slide guitar, vocals). The band has honed its sound on big stages and in biker bars alike, playing and performing in major festivals and cities throughout the country.
“Broken” appears on Ted’s new release, Ghost Train, out now. This track has a more mellow sound to it, but you’ll certainly be drawn in by lead singer Ted Z’s haunting voice.
