Born in the southeast and bred in New York City, Honest Wagner's sound can only be described as "Country Alt Dad Rock." In the Spring of 2021, long-time friends and collaborators, Brooks Wood and Cameron Mitchell, came together to form a new musical venture. The concept wasn't incredibly novel as the duo had, at that point, played together for nearly 13 years (The Barnstorm, 3G1C, as well as each other's solo endeavors). However, the forming of Honest Wagner marked a "reset" for the duo in their synergistic efforts as a two-headed songwriting and live performance unit. Honest Wagner's live performances can range from stripped down acoustic duo sets, full on rock & roll shows, and pretty much all points in between.
