Lead by vocalist and guitarist Cristina Battani, Firewheel kicks out new renditions of late-sixties classics, mid-seventies anthems, hot-off-the-press indie music, and good ol’ southern Country Rock. Accompanying singer and guitarist Cristina Battani are keyboardist Laura Cooper and lead guitarist Ray Brindley. Their unique 3-part harmony is the key to Firewheel’s distinctive “Heartland Rock” sound. Add in bluesy harmonica, an occasional flute solo, bassist Bob Keast and drummer Michael Braunfeld, and you have one of the Bay Area’s most dynamic and entertaining musical experiences. After ten years together, they continue to gain momentum—pleasing audiences throughout the SF Bay Area.
