About Us

The Wide Open features award winning duo Season Ammons and Allen Rayfield. Their distinctive style of soulful, blues-infused vocals, swampy harmonica riffs, distorted banjo licks and well-crafted lyrics with R&B grooves lends itself to the new sound evolution that is AMERICANA MUSIC.

 Allen Rayfield is a three time WINNER of "Best Harmonica Player" in The Emerald Coast and Season Ammons was nominated in 2014 by The Academy of Texas Music for "Best Female Vocalist" and the duo's first album 'We'll Get By' was recently nominated for "Best Americana Album" in  2016 by The Independent Music Awards! 

The duo stands alone with tons of energy and sound as they play various instruments and back one another in harmonies. However, depending on venue and event needs The Wide Open can expand with additional members to include electric and slide guitar, fiddle, keys, drums and bass. 

 Regardless of band configuration The Wide Open puts on a fun, engaging and memorable performance every single time!!   With a recent and successful $17,000 Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign, The Wide Open gears up to release their highly anticipated sophomore album. Working with veteran Texas producer Dave Percefull, The Wide Open just put out their first radio single
