Waker
Waker
Waker was founded by childhood friends and songwriting duo Chase Bader (vocals, acoustic) and Conor Kelly (electric guitar). The group mashes soul, rock & roll and funk into an eclectic, danceable sound, focusing on songs that aim for the heart, head… and feet.

Originally known as Koa, Waker was christened in late summer 2016 following the addition of drummer Dave Czuba and organist/pianist David Crutcher to the already talented lineup of Ryan Ladd (bass), Alex Mathews (sax) and Ryan McClanahan (percussion). With a name that stems from the line, “Getting close to bedtime, time to wake,” in their song, “Fever,” the intention has always been clear: to “wake people” with their music. In a short amount of time the band has already conquered festival stages at ACL, Hangout, SXSW, Firefly and Wakarusa. They’ve toured with JJ Grey & Mofro, Moon Taxi, Galactic and The Wailers, and recently recorded a session for Audiotree Live.

Since the release of their 2015 EP the band has continued their nonstop regiment of touring and writing. Look for new music in 2017.

Waker is an experience meant to be shared with others.
Stella Ruze
Throughout modern American music history, a common theme among our most iconic artists is the ability to seamlessly blend divergent musical styles into a sound that is as unique as it is familiar. Philadelphia-based Stella Ruze is poised to become one of these transcendent musical voices, capturing a new signature sound that is steeped in the American musical traditions of folk, jazz and pop.
