Jason Williams – Bass Guitar
Craig Wilkins – Guitar, Keyboard

Allison Wilkins McPhail – Keyboard, Vocals, Theremin
Jason Carmona – Drums

The Wheel Workers are led by songwriter, lead singer, and multi instrumentalist Steven Higginbotham.  Reemerging in 2010 after an extended hiatus from recording with the album Unite (to be released in Fall 2010), The Wheel Workers deliver a diverse sound and instrumentation involving violins, keyboards, trumpets, clarinet, theremin and banjo along with more traditional rock instruments.

Described in the past as a “strange and otherworldly drama,”[i] reminiscent of Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Wilco, and the Secret Machines.   Steven Higginbotham sings with a passion that evokes “Thom Yorke and Morrissey”,[ii] while the music has “breathtaking depth … that washes over the listener in waves.”[iii] Among other honors, this first incarnation of The Wheel Workers, led by Steven Higginbotham, played the prestigious Eklektikos program on KUT in Austin, and was selected as “Band of the Month” by Eufonia Radio in Monterrey, Mexico.[iv]

During the hiatus from 2005-2010, Higginbotham moved from Austin to Houston and spent his time teaching at a local high school and laying the groundwork for the newest incarnation of the Wheel Workers by recording Unite at his home studio.  To help him record and play live the new material for what would become Unite, Steven called first on friends and sibling dynamic duo Allison Wilkins McPhail and Craig Wilkins.  The songs on Unite show off the range of The Wheel Workers, from melodic rockers like “The Seal and Whale” and “Stereomad” to the acoustic-based songs “Hey Man” and “The MOP.”  The first track, “The MOP,” features trumpets, clarinet, and tuba, and was inspired by the sit-down strikers of Republic Windows and Doors in 2008. Unite will be released near the end of 2010.
