Wooden Satellites is a band from Fort Wayne, Indiana that likes to take time out to enjoy the finer things in life. Those finer things, if listed in order of refinement, would be as follows:
1. slowly prepared foods
2. intoxicating liquids
3. activities of a sensual nature
4. music making and performance
C. Ray Harvey writes the songs, Andrea Harvey helps to sing them, and Jon Keller plucks the guitar. Eric Frank, a more recent addition, helps to keep time on drumkit.
Some have said that the band prefers to hide behind humor and disinformation rather than face up to their true nature. This is a harsh and all-too-accurate assessment. The dire consequences of this habit have led to the confusion and frustration of many family members and former fans. C. Ray prefers to describe the band as "just not taking their own thing too seriously."
The music of Wooden Satellites is made with keyboards, guitars, a sampler, and a loop pedal. It is intentionally poppy, but tries with all its might to ring with truth and self-discovery.
Upon my word, Wooden Satellites have an album called "Why Can''t I Be Enough." It features eight songs loosely based on Biblical characters and intensely self-involved themes like never measuring up, always missing the point, and rarely getting what you want.
