Detroit claims a long line of musical trendsetters. Perhaps there’s something in the water, or maybe it’s the blue collar, put-up-or-shut-up mentality, but the Motor City has served as fertile ground for musical geniuses ranging from Alice Cooper and Kid Rock to Eminem and Bob Seger.
Kaleido – comprised of Christina Chriss (vocals), Joey Fava (drums), Ronnie Rosolino (rhythm guitar), Cody Morales (bass) and Zach Bolling (lead guitar) – is a fresh, modern day Detroit incarnation of rock n’ roll. Their debut full-length album “EXPERIENCE” is straight, unadulterated, feel it in your soul rock with flourishes of pop, R&B, metal, punk & funk undertones.
At the core, Kaleido is reminiscent of the piss-and-vinegar, stadium rock of a young Guns N’ Roses crossed and fused with the lovable, fun and energetic sensibilities of an early No Doubt. Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which quickly gained them notoriety in the Detroit music scene.
Named Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Weekly in both 2013 & 2014, Kaleido has won three Detroit Music Awards – “Outstanding Rock/Pop Group” and “Outstanding Rock Recording” in 2015 and “Outstanding Hard Rock Group” in 2017. They are a touring machine, lighting up stages on the Van’s Warped Tour, Rockstar Uproar Festival, Summerfest & CMJ Music Marathon and opened for Aerosmith, Slash, Rob Zombie, Kid Rock, The Offspring, Sammy Hagar, Evanescence, Halestorm, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Twenty One Pilots and countless others.
Kaleido is expanding their fanbase internationally with their first tour of the United Kingdom with Alien Ant Farm and Hed PE in October 2016.
The first single released from “EXPERIENCE”, titled “Love & War” (co-written and featuring Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm), won an unprecedented 27 nights on 89x The New Rock Alternative People’s Choice, and was consequently retired as the most winning song of all time on the station.
“Trouble In Paradise”, the second single, combines hard hitting 808’s, pounding live drums, a bouncy rhythm, beautifully eerie vocals, soaring melodies and harmonizing guitars with a funky reggae inspired bass line. “Trouble In Paradise” blends and bends genres, creating a fresh, new sound.
The new single “Die Tryin” is a rock anthem to stepping up to the plate, taking your swings and never backing down from a challenge. The music video for the song won the “LOUDWIRE Battle Royale” for 5 weeks in a row before being retired into the Hall of Fame and becoming the very last hall of fame addition before the contest was ended. Kaleido just recently completed a national tour with Seether and is in the studio working on their next album. They are performing on Shiprocked in January 2018 with Stone Sour, Seether, In This Moment and many more.
