1) Where did the band name come from? Our sound is derived from vintage rock, blues, and soul. The name Caldonia is a nod to the first song to ever be described as "rock and roll" in print. Jordan Louis recorded "Caldonia" in 1945 and it soon became a worldwide phenomenon, being covered by blues greats B.B. King, Muddy Waters, and many more.
2) Who are your main inspirations as a band? While Caldonia draws our biggest influence from 60's and 70's southern soul (Stax, Muscle Shoals, Capricorn, etc.), we just try and put on the best possible show for the audience.
3) What would you like to achieve as an artist? We ultimately just want to become full-time musicians, recording and touring the world. -We all have day jobs, but it would be an absolute dream to perform music full-time.
4) What should fans expect to experience at a show? Lots of energy, and movement. The songs we play conjures up a time in rock and roll when people weren't scared to get up and move. We love for an audience to get up and dance with us!
5) Who is the biggest artist you’ve worked with? I (Keyton) got the chance to open for St. Paul and the Broken Bones, a while back. They absolutely killed it, and I was honored to be a part of that concert.
6) tell us a little more about your recent project? Caldonia "...is Hurtin' for You" is our debut EP, and will be released on all streaming platforms (iTunes/Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, etc.) 12/27/19. It was recorded at the historic FAME studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. We are very proud of this release, as it pays homage to so many soul acts before us, that recorded in Muscle Shoals.
7) What should we be looking forward to from you in the future? In 2020 we'll be playing more shows and releasing new music, so keep an eye on www.CaldoniaMusic.com or www.Facebook.com/CaldoniaMusic
