"Southern Rock Muscle
~ Soulful Rock n' Blues."
Thomas Wynn and The Believers is a 6-piece sibling-led fiery ensemble dubbed by Soundboard as "Southern Rock Muscle/Soulful Rock n' Blues." If you like Tom Petty, The Band, The Black Crowes, Redding, CCR, and a little Pink Floyd, you'll love this band.
Gibson-sponsored from Orlando, Florida, TW&TB crosses generations with just really really good music. For the sixth year in a row, The Believers again were voted Orlando Weekly's 2014 Best of Orlando #1 Rock Band (AND #1 Country Band plus superior singer-songwriter accolades for the band's namesake TW).
Georgia Music Hall Of Famer Alan Walden says, "One of the newest, brightest, tightest, smoothest, most energetic bands to ever come through." Wynn and sister Olivia's spirit-moving vocals and blood harmonies the press calls their "secret weapon," plus the emotional delivery backed by an explosive tight band, they've crafted a new vein of rock -- gritty, yet pure uplifting Soul Rock, a mixture of the classics, R&B and gospel -- creating a sound that has an identity of its own. Reax Music Magazine states “The sum of the parts is one of the strongest live shows in the state, the music stately and sweeping, with powerful melodies and hooks, grinding jams with soaring guitars and tight drum work, and a frontman that can carry “the weight.” Best New Bands writes "they embody everything authentic and raw." Working on their third album slated for a late 2014 release, the band is featured at multiple festivals, as well as also touring this summer with JJ Grey & Mofro, The Revivalists, and The Black Cadillacs.

“Bragg Jam Must See: "I do always pick one band, that I have to see, no matter what. Like even if Jesus returned, I'd still try to make sure I wasn't raptured until I could get to see a couple of songs from this one band. This year, that band Is Thomas Wynn and the Believers. He's the son of original Cowboy drummer Tom Wynn, and that whole Capricorn connection is great and all, but this fellow has some serious rock muscle. Do not miss him. In fact, if you see him, throw yourself upon him because this is one of those bands that Bragg Jam may only be able to afford this year. -- 11thHourOnline” - 11th Hour Online
“For once, you have a Florida band that is Florida. They look Florida; they sound Florida, with a touch of Molly Hatchett sprinkled on The Band, Neil Young, and The Black Crowes. Not hipster transplant Florida, but Florida Florida. ” - John Prinzo, Reax Music Magazine
