Waker
Waker
Waker was founded by childhood friends and songwriting duo Chase Bader (Vocals, Acoustic) and Conor Kelly (Electric guitar). The group hails from Nashville, mashing soul, rock & roll , & funk into an eclectic, danceable sound, focusing on songs that aim for the heart, head... and feet.

Originally known as Koa, Waker was christened in late summer 2016 following the addition of Dave Czuba (drums) & David Crutcher (keys) to the already talented lineup of Ryan Ladd (bass), Alex Mathews (sax), and Ryan McClanahan (percussion).

With a name that stems from the line, “Getting close to bedtime, time to wake,” in their song, “Fever,” The intention has always been clear, to “wake people” with their music. In a short amount of time, the band has already conquered festival stages at Bonnaroo ACL, Hangout, SXSW, Firefly, and Wakarusa. They’ve toured with Blues Traveler, JJ Grey & Mofro, Moon Taxi, Galactic, the Wailers, recorded a session for Audiotree live, and headlined theater shows across the country.

Since the release of their 2015 EP, the band has continued their nonstop regiment of touring & writing. Look for new music in 2017.

Waker is an experience meant to be shared with others.

Whether playing for an intimate crowd of 30 inside a packed coffee shop, or singing solo to 300 at his university, Thomas believes in the power of honest music that moves people.

His debut album, Truth in the Mud, is a collection of five songs that all speak to the power of companionship through some form. The songs speak to the small moments of clarity we all have, the small moments in laughter with other people that bring us truth… even when the rest of our lives may be entirely unclear.

Thomas also believes in the power of music in service to others, whether teaching music to disadvantaged children or singing to the elderly on Christmas Day, and supports non-profits that do the same. He is always interested in collaborating on future projects for good and would love to hear your ideas.
