The Wires are a modern exploration in string sound. Created in Kansas City, Missouri, Laurel Morgan Parks, violin, and Sascha Groschang, cello, have been composing dynamic and cinematic music as best friends since 2009. Their music is inspired by imagery found in the natural world, folk styles, and modern string techniques. Following their debut album in 2012, their album "Wilder" (May 2019) is an imagined journey that includes depths of the oceanic world, the vast expanse of Celtic hills, the coldness of the frozen tundra and a discovery of the cosmos. Their holiday album, "Winter" (December 2020) encompasses cinematic, yet an intimate timbre, with the classic sounds of the season. The duo performs at festivals, concert halls, and music venues in the Midwest and beyond. Their online school, "Fiddle Life," (www. fiddlelife.com), teaches adults traditional styles at beginner and intermediate levels.
