VICTOR WAINWRIGHT & THE TRAIN features the high-octane boogie piano and big soul sounds of vocalist and blues man Victor Wainwright, backed by one of the tightest smokin' bands on the scene.

Since forming in 2012, they've toured internationally 10+ months of the year.

'Real Midnight' is the band's poignant new Joe Henry produced album. WoodSongs Kid: Mikaya Taylor is talented bluegrass singer from Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
