In less than two short years "The Guilty Wanted" has quickly developed a sound that is best described as "Modern Americana." Rebecca Hoffman breaks onto the scene with a voice that is nothing short of inspiring (with a tip of the hat to the stylings of Norah Jones and Christina Perry). The band is equally at home moving from acoustic guitar, piano, and upright bass to effects driven, spacious electric guitar and synth keyboard sounds to meld classic beauty with a new modern sound all of their own. Drawing from their collective backgrounds of pop, blues, country, Jazz, and even bluegrass, their originals about life, faith, and inclination will give you pause with introspective lyrics and draw you in with fiercely catchy musical arrangements.
The Guilty Wanted kicked off 2013 headlining a major youth conference in Green Bay and has since filled up their summer calendar highlighted by a 4th of July appearance at Summerfest's Emerging Artist Series. "Its always great to play Summerfest but to be selected to play in the Emerging Artist Series with some of the best up and coming acts from around the world is truly an honor." -Rebecca Hoffman [+]
