Aage Birch is the old soul that found a home in Rosco Wuestewald. And Aage Birch will be the force behind new music that will drive a primitive rhythm.
Hailing from Yankton, South Dakota, Rosco hit the road at an early age and spent years performing under the moniker, Onward, etc.
After the self released album ‘Old Soul’ in 2013, the band signed with DC-Jam Records in 2014. They went on to record at DOB Sounds with Derek O’Brien (Social Distortion) and released the album ‘Sonder On’ in 2014 to critical acclaim and gained them international attention. Rosco has been touring ever since, globetrotting with his trusty axe and wailing into microphones that exude the scent of whisky and beer.
The project led him around the world where he played many well known festivals and venues like Coachella, Bonnaroo, twice on The Vans Warped Tour, twice on Flogging Molly’s Salty Dog Cruise, Summerfest Main Stage, FEST, Vail Rocks Main Stage, SXSW Showcase, CMJ Music Fest and the Alaska State Fair, among others.
And along the way, he had the privilege of sharing the stage with some old heros and new friends alike, including: Flogging Molly, Lucero, Murder By Death, Devotchka, Aaron Gillespie, Dropkick Murphys, Skinny Lister, Frank Turner, Authority Zero, Dave Hause and many other amazing artists.
It was only a matter of time before history and evolution collided. Now, ironically moving “onward,” and resurrecting the namesake of his great grandfather, Aage Birch, Rosco is honoring the inevitable evolution of this artistic journey. Aage Birch is the next chapter in a book that continues to grow.
Raw, true, sad and honest, the upcoming work in his musical catalogue is the type of songwriting that opens the soul up for examination and will reveal inner truths that will cut to the core like glass on flesh.
He’ll be touring nationally and internationally in the months to come. So keep your ear to the ground. Follow the sound of the beating heart and the battle cries of the immortal inquisition. It will lead you to a place where old meets new, a place where primal secrets will be shared, and age old truths will be revealed. It’s the place you were meant to find all along. Welcome to the next chapter: Aage Birch.
