The Wigs is the brainchild of lead singer and songwriter, John Girard. This is a pre-production release--the framework for a fully instrumented, tasty, eclectic, and sincere little album and band.
We are currently seeking additional members and/or a producer to enrich and expand our work.
We welcome constructive feedback and advice. Thanks!
Influences include The Smiths, The Beatles, James Taylor, Elliot Smith, Ben Folds, Darden Smith, Elvis Costello, and Dave Matthews.
John was awarded a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music but instead chose to pursue a career in medicine. He is a graduate of Colby College and Harvard Medical School and has practiced and taught primary care medicine for the past 12 years. This debut album, “altar’d states”, offers a creative look at relationships, blow-up dolls, and politics with a unique blend of humor, honesty, insight, and sensitivity.
