WE ARE NOT NOW NOR WILL EVER BE A COVER BAND!
All songs are written, sung and performed by Lochlann Kilburn & Kelly Cassella.
We came together as a duo because we shared the same interest in music, meaning we like everything. 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 both 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, neither of us can play an instrument but the desire to sing again burned so bright that we said the heck 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.
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 Lochlannwe are loving every moment of it!
