Wild Skies
Wild Skies
Wild Skies is the band that almost-met-in-real-life.

Kristine and Aaron live two blocks from each other. Kristine and Danny were living in the same suburb for a year. Danny and Tommy played several shows together in different bands, but they never actually met.

All it took was a Craigslist ad to put together Wild Skies, a folk-rock band from Chicago, IL. The group shines through thoughtful songwriting and soaring harmonies; embracing the traditional roots of the folk genre, but adding their own modern twist. Wild Skies pushes the boundaries of what you thought folk music could be – and they do it right.

Combining folk elements like banjo and violin (Danny Caldwell) and standup bass (Tommy Good) make the sound familiar yet unique. Mixed with traditional keys (Spencer Adamson), guitar (Aaron Lechlak), and vocals (Kristine Sorum-Williams), you get the upbeat, shake-the-rafters sound that is Wild Skies.

The band released their first self-titled EP on July 4, 2014. For a limited time, it is available for free download on their Bandcamp page.

Ludlow
Ludlow is a Chicago-based indie-folk band who perform songs with deep tones, memorable melodies and multiple vocal harmonies. Formed by Chicago songwriter Mark Schoeck, Ludlow includes guitarist/vocalist Josh Noble and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Maria Kloess to comprise a trio that sounds larger than a three-piece band.
