Stepbrothers Josh Bowman & Steven Howard and childhood friend Chrystian Cano make up the trio Wetwood Smokes.
The instruments they bought into their initial gigging flurry of fashionable LA music circles were the same ones used in the recording of their debut album Earth Tones & Red. The album’s name was, in fact, derived from the color pallet provided by their setup: wood finished Gretsch drum kit, Red Korg SV-1 with reversed color keys, Fender jazz bass with a red strap and a variety of hand-made wood stained stage props.
Check out the premiere of Wetwood Smokes’ single, “Cold” on Popdose.

Their current modus operandi is to evolve and grow their unmistakable sound and image in hopes that it will be familiar to multiple generations, beyond the current musical trends they happen to coincide with.
