Lydia is an indie rock band from Gilbert, Arizona. Formed in 2003, frontman Leighton Antelman along with a different array of band mates released three albums and took to the road for their first headlining tour in 2008 in support of their record Illuminate.
After a brief hiatus in 2010, the band returned in September 2011 with a new song, and their album, Paint it Golden, was released shortly after in October of that same year. Lydia’s success has led them to tours such as the Zumiez Couch Tour, Vans Warped Tour, and The Bamboozle Festival as well as extensive headlining and supporting tours across the US, Canada, and the UK.
In March of 2013, Lydia released Devil, produced by Colby Wedgeworth (The Maine, This Century), as a follow up to 2012’s Acoustics EP. The band toured in support of the record, then Lydia re-released Devil in a deluxe version shortly thereafter.
In September of 2015, Lydia released their latest full length Run Wild – coproduced by Aaron Marsh (of Copeland) and Colby Wedgeworth. The band embarked on a headlining run with support from Turnover, Seahaven, and The Technicolors. The band has earned press coverage by many reputable press sources over the years including Alternative Press, Absolute Punk, idobi radio, Guitar World, and more. Lydia’s most recent music video, for “When It Gets Dark Out” off of Run Wild, has been picked up by major media outlets MTV, AXS TV, and Yahoo Music to name a few. The band plans to continue to tour on the success of Run Wild.
Lydia is Leighton Antelman, Matt Keller, and Justin Camacho.
Kalimur is an alternative band from Connecticut who have charted on iTunes around the likes of Ed Sheeran & Passenger. Their music is brutally honest & draws from the complex stories we each experience everyday.

Wayward City is an alternative rock outfit hailing from New Haven, CT. Formed in late 2015, Wayward City exploded onto the Connecticut scene by releasing a series of live, studio performance videos that blur the line between alternative and post-rock. With an earnest focus on songwriting, the group couples etherial guitar textures with driving drum-and-bass rhythms to build an eclectic atmosphere through which singer David Torres' haunting but uplifting voice truly soars.
“Listening to Wayward City’s debut EP is like standing up through a sunroof, at top speed after a great day. Driving fuzzy bass, layered effervescent guitars, drumming executed with technical precision, all adorned with theatrical vocals that make a compelling experience with each repeated listen. The sweepingly epic sound continues throughout the EP and challenges anyone to not make Wayward City their new favorite band. This is an absolute must listen for anyone who enjoys rock music.” - Inside Indie CT
