When some people think of Reno, Nevada, the popular Comedy Central show Reno 911 comes to mind. Others envision a city that sits in a high desert valley at the foot of the Sierras. Now the city has a new distinction. Reno’s pop-punk group Wayward shines brighter than the lights on the Vegas strip. As noted by Anthony Raneri from Bayside and Kelvin Cruz of A Thorn For Every Heart, Wayward produces vocal melodies that will catch anyone’s ear, as well as strong guitar riffs (not to mention great solos) and driving beats and bass. This is a band that everyone should definitely keep an eye on. With their new album in the works through Justin Powell Productions, the Nevada scene will definitely benefit from having such a hard working (not to mention close-knit) band. Be sure to check out their music at www.myspace.com/waywardmusic and leave them some love. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
Without further ado, iRock is proud to feature WAYWARD as the “Artist of the Week”. Check out the Q&A with Chris of Wayward below.
