Video: The Wheeler Boys – Common Ground EP/Documentary

 

 

What happens when you mix 33 Southern musicians of all genres, ages, races and backgrounds inside a world-class recording studio in Atlanta for 5 days?  You get a glimpse into the future of musical appreciation and hybrid sounds to come.  Common Ground is a musical experiment, masterminded by Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Recording artists The Wheeler Boys.  The short documentary and 5 song EP takes viewers inside the creative process behind what used to be considered mismatched musical collaborations. The film lets the viewer sample the different flavors of the Southern music scene, offering a behind the scenes montage of each day’s recording. The Common Ground EP is available for download below.  Both the EP and the short film showcase how the musicians found creative inspiration together as one using the common ground of music. None of the five songs fit comfortably into one genre yet the result is still great music.
