Paul Kamm (guitar and vocals) and Jonny “Mojo” Flores (guitar and vocals) are singer/songwriters and the frontmen of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel. As an acoustic trio, with their bass player, Shelby Snow, who also sings and contributes to the song writing, they bring the same high energy and engaging stage presence to a quieter place, combining a bit of Country, Blues, and Bluegrass to the band’s famously hard driving sound. The infectious quality of their songwriting really shines in this setting, along with the diverse nature of it. Paul and Jonny work off each other like two sides of the same coin, actively looking for and pushing each other to find the most in whatever song they’re playing. All the fire of the Wheel is there, but also the sweet raw essence of the folk and blues singers who came before.
