where we don't TRY to be rock stars, we simply ARE rock stars. We're just not famous. Or rich. And we don't trash hotel rooms yet, so we're still a relatively safe bet for your yard party or festival—in a loud, über-present, over-the-top concert performance sort of way. A way that we think rock fans really appreciate. Like blending the on-stage raucousness of David Lee Roth in his prime with the guitar wizardry of Jimmy Page, adding a generous portion of requisite tongue-in-cheek cockiness and a bunch of sequins, and throwing it all in a big glass with some Jack Daniels. Can we strike a rock-star pose to that song? Grind our voices to gravel by the end of it? Shred our fingertips? Push our personal abilities and simultaneously pout like Poison? Twirl around on the stage and almost lose balance? Yes? Then that song is definitely on our show set list.
Maybe WP4$ has tapped into the Zen of rock music, although we would never call ourselves masters. Better that we are old souls of rock and roll, young at heart and clever in mind, but never too brazen to learn and grow, to delve into new territory traveled by the musicians who have gone before us, and to write new songs inspired by those masters. Put the tunes on a CD, mash up some cover art, call the album something crazy like Not For Sale, and sell it for $3.33.
But that's not the end of our rock star road, oh no. We've got more creativity and fire in us, so get ready for another innovative production! WP4$ has a new CD shaking up the music scene, and folks, let me tell you, it is absolutely gonna transport you to rock and roll bliss--in a limousine. It's called Ante Up, All In, Cash Out, Make It A Double. And doesn't that just make you LOL and start obsessing over what kind of crazy rock and roll music is on that disc. (FYI, first run hard copies are ALMOST SOLD OUT! Get yourself over to CDBaby NOW and buy the digital download version, or contact us for one of the LAST FOUR CD packages remaining from the initial production! -BWP, August 1, 2016)
And we would be remiss not to share a little secret with you: our next album is in pre-production right now. What's that you say? Is it gonna top our last CD? Well, since you asked, we will answer with all of the humbleness of a yoga instructor: Yeah, this one will blow your mind, baby. (Okay, if the yoga instructor was Mick Jagger.) Be ready for an epic concept album, that is all we will say at this point.
So that is WP4$ in brief. Read more on the About page to find out exactly what makes this band stand out from the zillions of other unsigned musicians on the planet. Check this: Live and recorded, WP4$ borrows from the best, begs for nothing, and steals only hearts. We go legit, or we don't go at all. Got it? Get with us, we all sit together—until the band has to get on stage and noisy up some dead sonic space. Which is what you want in the end.
