The Wide Open
The Wide Open features award winning songwriting duo Season Ammons and Allen Rayfield. Their distinctive style of soulful, blues-infused vocals, swampy harmonica riffs, distorted banjo licks and well-crafted lyrics with R&B grooves lends itself to the new movement that is Americana Music.
Originally from St. Louis, Allen Rayfield is a three time WINNER of "Best Harmonica Player" in The Emerald Coast and Season Ammons, a Texas native was nominated in 2014 by The Academy of Texas Music for "Best Female Vocalist" and the duo was recently nominated for "Best Americana Album" in 2016 by The Independent Music Awards.
The duo show stands alone with tons of energy and sound as they play various instruments and back one another in harmonies. However, depending on venue and event needs The Wide Open can expand with additional members to include electric and slide guitar, fiddle, keys, drums and bass. Regardless of band configuration, The Wide Open puts on a fun, engaging and memorable performance every single time!!
Working with veteran Texas producer Dave Percefull and his Grammy Award winning production team, The Wide Open gears up to release their sophomore album 'Long Road Home' .
