Koe Wetzel
Just before closing time at any bar in the world, certain songs will play, and you know the artist right away (no matter how many drinks you’ve had). With whiskey in his glass, smoke in the air, a head full of stories, and a guitar in his hands, Koe Wetzel writes those kinds of songs. Brewing a homegrown blend of grunge, country, Americana, and anything else he pleases, the Texas-born, singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer has unapologetically bulldozed a path of his own since 2015 without permission. For the unini0ated, the music sounds like Waylon Jennings making a record in SeaIle circa ’91. After moving 200,000-plus units of independent releases such as Noise Complaint [2017] and Harold Saul High [2019], racking up over 485 million streams and views to date, selling out countless shows, and even launching his own live extravaganza Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music Festival, he makes his major label debut in 2020 with his third album, Sellout [Columbia Records].

Tongue proudly in cheek and middle finger raised high, the title belies the fact that this record was made by a dude who still splits his free time between catfish noodling and hunting…

“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. Everyone who complained about having to wait for a new album from Koe gets more than they deserved and likely expected. “Harold Saul High” is sure to be one of the few albums that defines this generation of Texas music.
