Mexico to Maine: The David Wax Museum's sound collected in travel

"It in part comes from the Mexican influence, but most of the band didn't grow up in the northeast. I grew up in Virgina, David and Jordan are from Missouri. So you might also be hearing some of our southern roots."

The band David Wax Museum formed in Boston in 2007. They've since become hits at the Newport Folk Festival, won Song of the Year with “Born with a Broken Heart” and “Americana Artist of the Year” for the 2010 Boston Music Awards, and have starred in a mini documentary about their trip to China.
