About Awake The Wilde
Awake the Wilde is a band apart. Formed inside a concrete basement in Suburban Indiana by Cheese, Wild Billy, Sammy G and Blu. The original four would get together as much as they could to allow creations catch fire. Soon, between these stone walls, birthed a band of four strangers united by music; each of their own style and substance. Week after week the band would flesh out songs written by Blu as each member added his own panache until the air was visceral and each piece of sound found its place in the aural portrait. Finally, after four or so years, three without a drummer, found a light. Since that gracious night, the band began to grow after each practice as they learned each other’s habits and instincts. Now, they have solidified into a catalyst of rock-hop-funk-pop blues, so that even in a generation electronica, Rock ‘n Roll will never die.
Caldera is an alternative/progressive/rock band hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana. Formed in May of 2017, (bassist) Daniel Minnerick and (drummer) Ryan Cox invited (guitarist) Jesse Pryner to join them in starting from scratch. 18 months later, (vocalist) Trisha Krall appeared out of thin air with her dynamic voice and thought-provoking lyrics that perfectly complemented the music. As a project aiming to create music overflowing with fervid conviction and unapologetic aesthetic, every Caldera song ardently chases the group’s collective dream and design.
An alchemy of progressive rhythms melt with harmony and dissonance while evocative lyrical content pushes into the unconscious seeking truth and being. Caldera explores the prosody of their music through tone, color, and negative space inviting listeners to surrender to selfish indulgence, emotional release, and genuine experience.
