"A Benefit for Wonderroot"

GOOD DEED OF THE WEEK: Atlanta native Witt Wisebram founded the nonprofit organization WonderRoot, which helps local artists produce, distribute and expose their work. Wisebram's own work is, according to his Myspace.com site, "almost folk." There's very little "almost" about it. It's what Bob Dylan might sound like as a 21st-century indie-pop boy. - Access Atlanta


-Breathe.City.Lights E.P. (2005)
-includes "Rainbows and Finish Lines"
which has received airplay on numerous
college stations.
-Northeast Radio E.P. (2006)
-First Full Length to be recorded in the Fall of 2006.


Feeling a bit camera shy


While it may seem naive to most, there are certain artists that still think they can change the world through music, film, literature, etc. Witt Wisebram's songs represent the fire burning in the bellies of our nation's youth, sparked by the shortcomings of our country's government, and intensified by their personal conflict and confusion about how their lives are effected and if their voices can mean anything at all. Witt's haunting melodies, shaky voice, and expressive guitar playing snake through the room and seem to find those in the audience that have shared in similar experience, adjacent pitfall, and more importantly those that hold on to an unshakeable hope. Witt's songs, although extremely personal, serve as metaphors to a larger desire for recovery, redemption, and an undeniable need for change.

Witt Wisebram was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. He has always had a passion for folk, acoustic, and indie-musics. Now a solo musician, Witt draws on such influences as Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes, M. Ward, and others to create a lush and thought-provoking sound. Through a timeless melancholy, his songs become melodic narrative of a troubled past, of repairing oneself, of the desire to change the world through changing oneself. He has played countless shows in Atlanta and Western Massachusetts, to excited reviews and a rapidly growing fan base.

In 2003 Witt founded WonderRoot. WonderRoot is a non-profit organization committed to helping local artists produce, distribute, and expose their work. WonderRoot uses all of its proceeds to create and fund service projects to benefit the local community in an attempt to help socially conscience artists to have tangible positive impacts on the communities that have done so much to inspire them. The summer of 2005 marked the release of the "breathe.city.lights E.P." and a supporting national tour. First winning Atlanta's Limerick Junction's singer/songwriter contest and then traveling through 12 states, Witt played such venues as New York's CBGB 313 and Sidewalk Cafe as well as Chapel Hill's The Cave, Boston's Club Passim, and Atlanta's Eyedrum and Red Light Cafe. Well received everywhere he played, Witt played selected dates through the fall of 2005 while in the studio working on a new project. In the fall Witt played for Boston University's Radio series, at The Red Door in Portsmouth, NH, Hampshire college and more universities and colleges throughout the season including Johnson State University. Witt's song "Rainbows and Finish Lines" was featured on WTBU in Boston as well.

In the winter of 2006 Witt played a benefit for the Johnson State University Anti-War Coalition and numerous radio and TV spots. He performed and was interviewed on WHPC New York in March and appeared for a live set on Homegrown TV which airs all over New England. Witt played select shows through the season including a small spring tour that took him and WonderRoot artist, Will Bangs, down the east coast to New Orleans where they played for residents and relief workers trying to rebuild their community. Witt will be touring this summer with Will Bangs in support of the release of his Northeast Radio E.P.. Please visit www.wonderroot.org for more information!
