Webster’s Wheel, Opelika acoustic indie folk duo, has announced the launch of their sophomore album Made in Sunshine, set to be released Feb. 12. The album has been written as a spiritual guidebook to help listeners find healing during difficult times and has been described as “incredible” by Miami’s Too Much Love Magazine, “groundbreaking” by MobAngeles Press and “unmissable” by Hollywood Digest. To celebrate the release, the duo will be performing in The Jailhouse at Rock ‘N Roll Pinball in Opelika on Feb. 13 at 8 p.m.
Webster’s Wheel is composed of Opelika singer/songwriters Marie Robertson and Daniel Lee Webster, who began writing acoustic folk music together in 2019. They released their debut album Rest My Weary I’s in July 2020 and it was nominated for IndieShark Music Magazine’s 2020 Album of the Year. To quote one reviewer at IndieShark Music, “It’s hard to avoid getting lost in the sonic gaze generated by these two when they’re clicking like nobody’s business.”
The duo is now gearing up for the release of their second full-length album Made in Sunshine this February. Bluegrass harmonies and country bass lines are written all over this upbeat sophomore LP. The upcoming album was written to accompany the present state of the human spirit, but instead of simply reflecting on the current mood of the world, Webster’s Wheel are offering a spiritual guidebook for navigating the deep waters.
“There’s a lot of heartache and disagreement going on right now and we want to help people find peace and healing through spiritual reflection,” says Webster. “We embrace everyone with compassion and hope that after they hear our music, they leave with a smile in their hearts.”
Miami’s Too Much Love Magazine discusses the album in their latest review, “Webster’s Wheel are hitting 2021 as hard as they can with the beautifully simple Made in Sunshine … To say that the last year was a dark time for a lot of Americans wouldn’t be doing it justice, but Webster’s Wheel seem to be on a mission to right the ship with the most unsophisticated of heavenly harmonies … This is a good time to be a folk fan, and records like this are the reason why.”
