Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a swamptronic space cowboy sound with traditional instrumentation, global percussion, and electronic soundscapes. Comprised of multi-instrumentalists David Satori (Beats Antique) and Evan Fraser (Hamsa Lila; BOLO), each performance brings the audience to a mysterious crossroads at an imaginative and seductive moment in time. The result is a rebirth of Americana and beacon for a post-millennial return to downhome goodness.
The Dirtwire duo met at the California Institute of the Arts while studying World Music Composition. Both members of other successful music projects – Satori as part of the sensational electronic dynamo group Beats Antique and Fraser at the helm of world groove bands Hamsa Lila and Stellamara – their unique chemistry led to a continued musical friendship throughout the years. In 2012 Satori and Fraser released the debut dirtwire album, attracting everyone from electronic dance junkies to traditional world and roots music toe-tappers. With this first release, dirtwire was introduced to the world and a new family was founded. Satori and Fraser get down as dirtwire at select theater and festival stages across the US.
