The Womps are a rising Boston-based alt-rock jam band, dazzling audiences with fiery performances that draw on influences including funk, progressive rock and roll, fusion jazz, punk and folk. Formed around a shared love for all things weird and impossible, they strive to make each show unique through collective improvisation, finely-tuned harmonies, and carefully crafted songs of all shapes and sizes.
The Womps are Kailey Zercher - violin and vocals, JP Goldman - bass and vocals, Jason Lilly - guitar and vocals and Enguerran “OG” Altmayer on drums. Since starting at the Berklee College of Music, The Womps have played over 100 shows in more than 25 cities in the US and Canada.
The Womps released four singles in through 2018 and 2019, which includes an electrifying cover of Dolly Parton’s country classic “Jolene” and three original tunes, the frenzied “Barefoot Sensei,” rocking country-infused “Anthem of My Age,” and slow folk ballad “La Palette."
The latter two are from The Womps’ newly released album, Zlatan!, which was recorded live and almost entirely on tape at Defiant Audio in Long Island, New York.
