New Ridge Band

New Ridge

Sher Brodoski aka Emily Wilkins (left) Sher is one of the songwriters of New Ridge, the band we formed recently, singing lead and harmony vocals and playing guitar.  She brings to the group a collection of bluegrass and traditional folk, hidden gems she's discovered along the way.  Her originals songs evoke unforgettable strong western imagery.
Wendy Matson (right) Wendy is another songwriter of New Ridge, singing lead and harmony vocals and playing guitar and mandolin.  Wendy is an engaging story teller of the best tradition who blends folk, blues, jazz, rock and country into a sound that's all her own.
Wesley Steele Wesley Steele, the bass player and cellist of the group, has a rich musical history that reaches back to the 60's.  He has performed in jazz, rock and classical genres not to mention that he's played and recorded in bands with well known artists such as TC and Jerry Garcia from The Grateful Dead and Chicken Hirsch from Country Joe and the Fish - to name a few!
Nancy Kelly - another New Ridge songwriter, sings lead and harmony vocals, and plays piano.  Her music is layered with piano folk, hints of jazz and whispers of classical.  She's been honing her craft since age 17.  Her song 'New Ridge' was the inspiration for the band name.
