Wilco Band Members:
Jeff Tweedy—guitar, vocals
Leroy Bach— multi-instrumentalist
In addition to their work together as a band, Wilco's members have all pursued several solo and side projects, and have collaborated with Billy Bragg on one of the best tribute albums to Woody Guthrie—Mermaid Avenue.
Nonetheless, in their workings as a unit, Wilco's musicianship is among the best and tightest in their genre (whichever one they happen to be toying with at the time), and Tweedy's lyrics run from irony to brash honesty. While much of the group's aesthetic roots are in alt.country (as was the affiliation of Uncle Tupelo), Tweedy's influence and the revolving line-up of band members has inspired them more in the direction of roots rock and more edgy areas of Americana.
Solo, Tweedy treads more on the folk side of things, with live performances that call to mind a mid-1960s Bob Dylan or any of his contemporaries.
