"From Pittsburgh, it's Robert Wagner from Little Wretches back with a new live acoustic release album "Live at the Mattress Factory-Songs From the Land of Pit Bulls and Poker Machines" and how he came up with the name plus he performs live from the release!"

Mike Wagner, no relation to me (Robert), is an enthusiastic and encouraging person. Yes, he mispronounces "CALLIOPE" (he says cal--ee-o-pee with an accent on the O), but it is obvious that Mike…

LIVING AND THRIVING WITH RUSTIE 

As you will see if you view this interview, I am seated in a classroom, wearing my ESSENTIAL SERVICES tee-shirt. Rustie MacDonald and I engage in a free-flowing conversation. She hits me with the old, "Tell me about yourself," and I go into the whole teaching-through-stories-and-telling-stories-through-songs thing that is probably pretty familiar to folks who've listened to or read some of my other…

By Indiechroniquedaily / août 8, 2021 

Malgré la levée de certaines restrictions en France, la vie culturelle n’a toujours pas repris pleinement son cours. En particulier la scène musicale. Loin de nous les temps où nous pouvions aller voir des concerts, sans tracas ou peur. Car oui, même s’ils sont autorisés, la possibilité de pouvoir en profiter librement est assez…

The Little Wretches “Live at the Mattress Factory” 

MUSIC REVIEWS 

In Live at the Mattress Factory by southern twang-infused folk singer Robert Andrew Wagner, operating under the band title Little Wretches, we find the man wrestling deeply with plenty of complexities that give way to a clearer picture of desire. 

Right off the bat, I’ll say there’s something almost nostalgic about even hearing a live album, this being recorded with a live audience of…

Little Wretches Release Acoustic Live Album

Live at the Mattress Factory is one of the latest records by Little Wretches, a fascinating performer with plenty to say. Kicking off with the deceptively inviting Dark Times, it’s a song that looks forward by judging the present. Maintaining a critical eye on specifically political pundits and the shortcoming of artists and everyday people to stand up for what’s right, lead singer Robert Andrew Wagner’s voice really…

“LIVE AT THE MATTRESS FACTORY” FROM LITTLE WRETCHES 
Michael Rand July 16, 2021 

In an album jam-packed with some fantastic original songs, one of the best standouts for the record Live at the Mattress Factory from Little Wretches is a cover of Phil Oaks’ “Cops of the World”. Its placement in his setlist is very interesting as it follows the complex exploration of public perception and the nature vs nurture effect with youth and crime track “No…
