Fact Not Fiction
The Wooden Wings started as two, young, female singer-songwriters, Cherie LeJeune and Molly Portier. When they met during the summer of 2006, they had no idea that they both shared a common love for one thing - music. After two years of phone calls and emails, the girls began collaborating on their original music, performing at local coffeehouses and open mics under the name The Wooden Wings. With Cherie living in Lafayette and Molly living in New Orleans, the three-hour distance has made it a challenge, hence the name of their debut acoustic album, 144 Miles. A year later, a mere few months after starting work on a second album, the two girls joined forces with three of their best guy friends, and the band took on an entirely new feel. With Graham Beduze on bass, Harry Rosenberg on guitar, and Anthony Mikhael on drums, The Wooden Wings evolved with a new powerful sound. Trips between New Orleans and Lafayette became more and more frequent as the guys began working alongside the girls on the new record. Now, with their sophomore album, Fact Not Fiction, these five talented teens are ready to take on the music scene with their alternative, atmospheric, ambient music.
