Pondering Wade / Bio

We are:
Pondering Wade

Lochlann Kilburn- Vocals, Irish bouzouki,
Kelly Angeles- Vocals, Mandolin, Bass
Dani Evans- Vocals, Mandolin
Chris Cornwell- Drums/Percussion

All songs are original, written, sung and performed by Lochlann K., Kelly C. & Dani E.
We came together as a duo ( Kelly and I, Loch) because we shared the same interest in music meaning we like everything, then later added the sensational Dani Evans to form our killer Trio lead backed by our latest and greatest recruit drummer/ multi instrumentalist Chris Cornwell.
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 three 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, We couldn't play an instrument but the desire to sing again burned so bright that we said the heck with 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've been writing and singing for several years. Huge passion, it's what makes me, me.

Kelly Cassella-

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 Lochlann and niece Dani , we are loving every moment of it!

Dani Evans-

I have been singing as long as I was old enough to speak. It runs in the family starting with my grandfather, my father and my seven aunts, so I am proud to say that I got it natural. It's so amazing how we have our own styles but can pull it all together and come up with a blend of something beautiful. I'm excited to be apart of this project and enjoy working with my laid back crazy kin. Get ready for us!

Chris Cornwell-

Born in North Carolina, began with hitting pop-corn cans with chop sticks at a young age! Later his folks bought him a drum-set followed by Granny and Aunts purchase of a bas-guitar. Later curiousity lead to experimenting with other instruments where Chris Cornwell the Artist, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist foundation started to form. Chris Cornwell was accepted to Berklee College of Music in 2004.
