About Achilles Wheel Trio
Achilles Wheel blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia.
Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. Their idealism is not diminished by the harsh light of the modern world as we all struggle to live free and have a good time. And, in the end, hopefully make a difference.
Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times — to the here and now.
