Born and raised in East Texas, Koe Wetzel is rapidly gaining momentum in the Texas scene. The band brings a strong mixture of southern rock energy and East Texas charm. Koe began performing at an early age. Overnight, he had what seemed like an immediate fan base in his home state. He has since brought together this band and hit the road touring heavily. His band is comprised of drummer Andres Rocha, bassist Mason Morris, and guitarist Michael Odis Parrish. As the band continued to perform, Koe began writing in between shows. Bringing personal experience and inspiration from others to life with a melody was second nature to the young artist, “Being able to connect with an audience or a fan because they feel like they can relate to your lyrics is one of the coolest experiences in the world”. The band’s second album, “Harold Saul High” is Koe Wetzel being 100% Koe Wetzel but adding a new level of songwriting that proves Koe belongs at the forefront of this scene. It’s 90’s and early 2000’s punk rock meets raw, hillbilly east Texas country music. This album marries the authenticity of Koe’s live performance with an even better look into the mind and soul of the writer behind the pen, all at the same time appreciating the wit and heart of Koe in his nature as a fun-loving dude who loves to have a good time.
