Wyland are a four-piece alternative rock band based in a small town outside of the Meadowlands. Their sound, which has elements of atmospheric rock and indie singer-songwriter influence, has received praise for being “Coldplay-esque” and “intense and tasteful melodic rock [that] will resonate with the most endearing Lumineer fan.” CMJ said, “Wyland has an instantly digestible sound".
In 2015, the band released a couple demos which eventually led them to appear alongside bands like Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, and the Vaccines, to name a few.
Wyland is Ryan Sloan (vocals/guitar/piano), Patrick Viso (guitar), Zach Calidonna (bass) and Chris Luna (drums). They are set to release another EP in Spring 2017.
