Wakely is a four piece rock band from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Their sound is very versatile, pulling influences of yesterday, while blending indie and metal. Together since 2007, Joseph Lancaster, (lead vocals, guitar), Rob Verosko, (guitar), Travis Morris (drums), and Joel Van Wingerden (bass, back up vocals) are releasing their debut EP Put This To Rest in April 2008. The band was formed through myspace. com, through trial and error, when Rob and Travis wanted to start a new band together. They needed a vocalist and bassist, and found Joe who was a vocalist and guitarist looking for a new band because he had just moved to Colorado from California. Coincidentally, Joe had worked with Joel previously and everything fell into place. They started practicing together and had a great chemistry from the start. They couldn’t decide on a band name, so they pulled out the telephone book, and agreed that whatever name they landed on would be the band’s name. And so Wakely was formed.
Together, the four members of Wakely have a number of years of musical experience. Joe has been playing guitar for 5 years, and singing for 4. Rob has been playing guitar for 13 years. Travis has been playing the drums for 14 years. And, last but not least, Joel has been playing the bass for 5 years, and recently started pursuing back up vocals.
