Bwire has been founded by Wiebe Koopmans and Remco Bootsma. They started off playing covers but soon their own songs emerged. As an acoustic duo they recorded their first demo called “tuning” in February/March 2007. At the Frisian singer/songwriter contest in April 2007 they ended 3rd, but according jury member Daan Levy “with maybe the best songs of the evening but no singer/songwriter songs”. Because of their own sound it’s difficult to put Bwire in a specific genre. Due to their performance at this contest, Remco and Wiebe were invited to play a live session at Radio Fryslan in June 2007.
