Wyland & Valley
Thu, Dec 6 @ 8:00 pm
Two young acts with very bright futures.
Doors at 7pm | Show at 8pm
WYLAND are an American rock band formed sometime in 2015, somewhere in the Meadowlands of New Jersey. The band consists of Ryan Sloan (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Ariella Mastroianni (vocals, keyboards), Chris Luna (drums, vocals), Patrick Viso (guitar) and Zachary Calidonna (bass guitar).
The band began to grow in popularity from their live performances in the underground New York music scene. Their sound eventually reached across the ocean to Ireland, where the band spent the better half of 2018 recording with producer Philip Magee (Kodaline, Miles Kane, The Academic).
The band has since been in Nowhere Now. You’ll be there soon too.
VALLEY is a pop band from Toronto whose ambitions are even bigger than their sound. Forged from two bands who were accidentally double-booked for studio time, the born-and-raised Canadians seized the opportunity in disguise and began developing what would ultimately become one of the most refreshing, engaging, and promising new bands of the decade.
The immediate Top 200 chart success of VALLEY’s debut EP “Car Test” catapulted the band to sold out shows, festival appearances, and a nomination in the Toronto Independent Music Awards, establishing them as a worthy compatriot of influences such as The 1975, St Lucia, Arkells, and Walk The Moon.
Their second EP, “This Room Is White,” dropped on June 3 and represents enormous growth for VALLEY in both sound and stature. The band garnered Top 20 placement on Spotify’s coveted U.S. and Global Viral 50 playlists, features on several blogs, and shared the stage with A Great Big World among others. The timeless, anthemic songcraft for which VALLEY has become known unequivocally marks them as the next great North American band to watch.
