Sir Cadian Rhythm – Friday, Oct. 20th @ 9pm
Before even having a full-length album to release, Sir Cadian Rhythm (SCR) kicked open the doors of Rock & Roll in their home state of New York and opened for Andy Grammar in front of a crowd of 2,000.
From there, the five-piece rock band steadily moved up to bigger venues to accommodate their fast-growing fan base. All five members instantly found inspiration from groups, like The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus and Coldplay, which led to the discovery and shaping of their own, individual sound, which infuses pop with alt rock. Consistently releasing new music ever since, lead vocalist, Jack Weppler; guitarist, Alex Laudani; bassist, Richie Cluxton; keyboard and trombonist, Matthew Carlin and drummer, Micah Cowher, continue to reveal an unmatched mix of loose cannon riffs and supremely catchy melodies that keep so many adoring audiences around the country coming back for more.
“When you have to use multiple bands as an example for what your sound is like, you know you’re on to something new and fresh,” says Weppler. “We love music that captivates and controls you — music that is grand in scale, fun and unapologetically rock. We try and channel that through every live performance, as well as in the studio.”
To follow up their electric, live performances, SCR released a catchy, riff-driven single titled, “Not Quite Done Yet,” which hit 1.5 million video views within its first week and reached 300 thousand listens on Spotify. The song offers its own undeniable twist on pop-rock, delivering a huge and unshakeable hook. Carlin makes brilliant use of the keys and synths, while Laudani shows off his blazing guitar work. Tie it together with Weppler’s tremendous vocal range, Cluxton’s smooth bass hooks and Cowhers bountiful drum beats, and you have an irresistible blend of fun and high-powered spirit that commands and grooves. This hit song will also be featured in NASCAR HEAT 2 on PS4 and XBOX ONE, and is not the only SCR hit with a claim to fame. Their first single “Run Around Town” was featured in the major motion picture, Back in the Day, starring Alec Baldwin.
“When we began, we realized how eclectic our influences were,” Weppler says. “Normally that might be cause for a terrible sound — being that there are so many different flavors trying to co-exist at the same time — but we have the same foundation, and the same drive. We respect the chemistry we have with one another and through that, it works in such a colorful and brilliant way.”
