    Formed in 2014 by brothers Cole and Dexter Carpenter, the five-man group’s frontman and bassist respectively, Wise Words has brought a refreshing post-rock sound to the Dayton, Ohio music circuit.

    Wise Words has managed to pair their lyrical framework based on the fragility of the human experience with inescapable walls of drums from Caleb Morris, Christian Frey’s sweeping guitar, and an underlying foreboding synth structure from Donny Wolf. Underneath the controlled chaos, Carpenter’s songwriting forces listeners to answer life’s never ending questions of self doubt, the physical, and the spiritual.

    Influenced by groups such as Manchester Orchestra, O’ Brother, and Explosions in the Sky, the group has taken their hard rooted base and curated a unique palate of their own. Released in 2016, Wise Words’ debut LP Expectation expanded upon 2014’s debut EP, teetering the line between powerful, avalanche-like crescendos and brief introductions of lazy summer jazz, all while maintaining the same lyrical posture of openness and growth.
