Opening Artist: Bishop Briggs, The Wind + The Wave Firmly a phenomenon in their home country of Iceland, the four-piece band Kaleo is set to descend upon foreign shores in 2015, bringing their gorgeous blend of folk, blues, country, and rock to a wider mainstream audience in America. Their isolated heritage inspires a unique take on familiar sonic elements, resulting in diversity and freedom on each and every breathtaking track. Bandleader JJ Juliusson, drummer David Antonsson Crivello, and bassist Danny Jones began playing together at the age of 17. They named the band Kaleo, which means the sound in Hawaiian, and started their career in earnest with a handful of well-received shows at the 2012 Iceland Airwaves music festival. They recorded their first pair of original songs in early 2013, the fiery Rock N Roller and laid-back, bluesy Pour Sugar On Me, which earned Kaleo some radio airplay and press in Iceland.
