A Boston-based funk-rock jam band.

About Us

After playing together for years, multi-instrumentalist Josh Talbot and guitarist Ray Wynne formed the jam band Tailwind in 2021 to involve their Boston-based musician-friends in their craft. They have since been joined by drummer Marisa Gaetz, guitarist Trevor Ewald, vocalist Quinn Brodsky, and keyboardist Dominik Martinez. Drawing influence from funk, rock, and soul music, Tailwind cultivates a unique sound, backing Quinn's soulful vocals with funky rhythms and riffs.

A recent addition to the Boston-Cambridge music scene, Tailwind is already generating local excitement. Since winning MIT's 2022 SpringFest Showcase, Tailwind is gaining headway by playing at a variety of local venues (see upcoming shows below) and is excited to release their debut singles in the coming months.
