From Pondering Wade
We are: Pondering Wade Lochlann Kilburn- Vocals, Irish bouzouki, Tin whistle, Djembe Kelly Angeles- Vocals, Mandolin, Bass, Bones, Fiddle Dani Evans- Djembe, Bouzouki, Vocals All songs are original, written, sung and performed by Lochlann K., Kelly C. & Dani E. We came together as a duo ( Kelly and I, Loch) because we shared the same interest in music meaning we like everything, then later added the sensational Dani Evans to form our killer Trio. Being put into any genre box won't give us enough breathing room to play and perform what we are passionate about. After being in several bands between the three of us and not being allowed creative input, we just stopped. We are Vocalist and Lyricist, we thought. Although we can crank out melodies and words all day, We couldn't play an instrument but the desire to sing again burned so bright that we said the heck with the flaky musicians, we can figure this out on our own! We literally went out and bought a mess of instruments and tried our hands at each one and picked 2-3 a piece and had at it. So now we give you: Pondering Wade Lochlann Kilburn- I grew up in a family of 6 sisters and 1 brother. we all sing, dance, draw, you name it. being the youngest of all I sat and listened to them and watched them. it was if it was already ingrained in me to do the same. I could sing harmonies to a song from the first time hearing it like it was normal to be able to do it and write deep lyrics in under 5 minutes without even really trying. I've been writing and singing for several years. Huge passion, it's what makes me, me. Kelly Cassella- At an early age I was put into music playing the violin. It was something that I was passionate about because of my love for music. As it goes for many, things happen that get in the way of your dreams so i had to discontinue my lessons. However I never stopped singing and writing and a few years later I picked up bass guitar and played in several bands as a bassist while pursuing my other passion, writing novels. Although it hurt, once again I had to put the music on hold but now I'm back pursuing this project with my sister Lochlann and niece Dani , we are loving every moment of it! Dani Evans- I am the niece lol. I have been singing as long as I was old enough to speak. It runs in the family starting with my grandfather, my father and my seven aunts, so I am proud to say that I got it natural. It's so amazing how we have our own styles but can pull it all together and come up with a blend of something beautiful. I'm excited to be apart of this project and enjoy working with my two laid back crazy aunts. Get ready for us!
