Hailing from diverse origins including Pittsburgh, Houma, LA, and New England, The Train Wreck Endings stand out as a dynamic musical collective, gracing stages extensively across the East and Midwest. In their prolific career, the band has birthed seven original albums, a noteworthy single etched at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis a testament to their creative prowess. At the helm of this musical voyage is Andy Hawk, not only assuming the mantle of lead singer but also demonstrating his instrumental finesse through poignant acoustic guitar performances.
Boasting two decades of honed expertise in writing and performing, Hawk's journey from Kittanning, PA, to his current Virginia musical abode adds a nuanced depth to the ensemble's narrative. Paul Bordelon, spearheading lead guitar duties and contributing backup vocals, injects an additional layer of musical richness. Chuck Bordelon, holding down the fort on bass and guitar, emerges as a steadfast and inventive cornerstone for the band, his roots tracing back to Houma, LA, infusing the collective with a vibrant musical tapestry. Completing this harmonious ensemble is Michael Gauvreau, a versatile instrumentalist not confined to drums and backup vocals but also leaving his mark on the band's Bourbon Rain album with his piano and horn contributions.
“Ferris Wheel” unfolds with an interplay of strings and vocals, the subtle inclusion of mandolin adding a delightful layer to the mix. Soft, tender vocals render the track accessible, while a robust hook elevates its overall strength.
“Spinning Like a Top” bursts forth as a full arrangement with the entire band, an adrenaline-fueled composition where horns shine with impeccable delivery. Motivational and joyfully spirited, the song emanates energy from every direction. “Gone Away” echoes the high-octane energy of “Spinning Like a Top” but with a touch more attitude, evoking hints of American influence within its sonic contours. Contrary to their moniker, The Train Wreck Endings' music is far from chaotic; it is meticulously delivered with precision and finesse. Each track is a testament to their artistry—take a listen to experience the symphony of their well-crafted soundscape.
