Wallow in the Mire is a gritty alternative rock band based out of Phoenix, Arizona.
Allow us to introduce ourselves:
Josh Caballes - Lead Vocals.
With a powerful voice that can fuel a Boeing 747, Josh treats every show like its his last. He performs with an incredible amount of energy that has baffled scientists for centuries.
Israel Lozoya - Drums/Songwriter.
Good luck finding a quieter guy with a louder voice. Israel's lyrics stay with you long after the show, and like Superman, when his glasses come off, he takes on out-of-this-world drumming powers.
Omar Lozoya - Electric Guitar/BGV's.
Omar is the glue that holds Wallow in the Mire together. He motivates and gives the group their cutting edge sound with his melodies and musical arrangements.
Jacob Cardona - Electric Guitar/BGV's.
This Guitar Extraordinaire will either amaze or enrage you with his incredible skills. Jacob has the ability to make astounding music using any instrument he picks up. You can definitely look forward to a mind-blowing experience.
Franco Masuello - Bass/Keys/BGV's
The final installment to Wallow in the Mire, Franco brings the edge to the groups sound. He is diverse with his personality and musical ideas. He creates sounds that are unique and add texture to the music that Wallow in the Mire brings.
Wallow in the Mire Unites:
The five of us came from different parts of the U.S. to become one, and our music is a reflection of that. We all grew up with different rock influences and we incorporate that into our music. Bands like Switchfoot, Kings of Leon, and Young the Giant are fused together to produce our alternative sound. Our goal as a band is to develop a style of alternative rock that is unique and unheard of. Most people stick to the same riffs or lyrics, but we use a variety of new concepts and ideas to inspire us. For example, our song, She Cries Out was written to represent something deeper than physical or superficial attraction in a relationship. We want our music to be something that people think about. Something that stays with them. Music like that is hard to find these days and that's where we come in.
Wallow in the Mire has had the pleasure of performing in awesome events/venues, including SXSW (Austin, TX), Hard Rock (Phoenix, AZ), First Friday (downtown Phoenix), The Rhythm Room (Phoenix, AZ), The Nile Theater (Mesa), etc., as well as the privilege of opening for several bands, including Seventh Day Slumber, Dinner and a Suit, etc.
This band is committed to the community as well. Wallow in the Mire has had the honor of playing for several benefit concerts, including Hope Fest, To Write Love on Her Arms, Lovenotes and Powerchords: A musical stand for kids at the Phoenix Children's Hospital, etc.
Our major influences include Kings of Leon, The Used, and Switchfoot.
