Waker
Waker
Waker was founded by childhood friends and songwriting duo Chase Bader (Vocals, Acoustic) and Conor Kelly (Electric guitar). The group hails from Nashville, mashing soul, rock & roll , & funk into an eclectic, danceable sound, focusing on songs that aim for the heart, head... and feet.

Originally known as Koa, Waker was christened in late summer 2016 following the addition of Dave Czuba (drums) & David Crutcher (keys) to the already talented lineup of Ryan Ladd (bass), Alex Mathews (sax), and Ryan McClanahan (percussion).

With a name that stems from the line, “Getting close to bedtime, time to wake,” in their song, “Fever,” The intention has always been clear, to “wake people” with their music. In a short amount of time, the band has already conquered festival stages at Bonnaroo, ACL, Hangout, SXSW, Firefly, and Wakarusa. They’ve toured with Blues Traveler, JJ Grey & Mofro, Moon Taxi, Galactic, the Wailers, recorded a session for Audiotree live, and headlined theater shows across the country.

Since the release of their 2015 EP, the band has continued their nonstop regiment of touring & writing. Look for new music in 2017.

Waker is an experience meant to be shared with others.

Folk Family Revival
Don't be fooled by the name, these guys are not a folk band! They may be best described as an alt-country/rock and roll band, but you don't have to listen long to hear the influence of Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, The Band, Donovan and many others that bridged the gap between the American folk scene and the Folk Rock scenes of the mid 1960's. They are a throwback to a time when southern rock and psychedelic music dominated the airwaves yet distinctively new and different. A band of brothers and a childhood friend from Magnolia, Texas, they are as comfortable opening arena’s for Ted Nugent as they are opening for Willie Nelson, or playing some hipster club in Austin, their music simply strikes a chord with just about any audience. Though their previous album acquired much critical acclaim, this is a band that must be seen live to be fully appreciated.
