Singer and lyricist Greg Rijavec, along with drummer Matt Costa and multi-instrumentalists Mike Noda and Jason Eisenberg, write original music as Caldecott. The band's rowdy and triumphant EP “Rock Bottom” was self-released in December 2010. The six-song record received critical praise, dubbed by local media outlet The East Bay Express as “well-crafted melodic rock”, and earned Caldecott a berth at Oakland's famed Art and Soul Music Festival.
Caldecott released its self-titled full length album this past December. Recorded at Shipwreck Studio, the record showcases the band's emphasis on viral surf licks, incessant melodies and features expanded production and instrumentation. The music world has taken note, via the Owl Mag: “Caldecott's Oakland-based brand of roots rock hits with a satisfying crunch... the twangy goodness of “Human Again” is the perfect entry point to an engaging endeavor.”
The band's resume includes two tours through California, an appearance on local Bay Area channel KOFY's signature program, “Creepy KOFY Movie Time”, performing at SXSW 2013 in an “Oakland Showcase”, and recording time courtesy of Converse Rubber Tracks San Francisco. During that one day session at Different Fur Studios, Caldecott recorded three new songs. As their sound, style and lore continues to progress, and with the East Bay watching their backs, the boys of Caldecott are looking ahead to a bright musical future.
