Waker was founded by childhood friends and songwriting duo Chase Bader (vocals, acoustic) and Conor Kelly (electric guitar). The group mashes soul, rock & roll and funk into an eclectic, danceable sound, focusing on songs that aim for the heart, head… and feet. 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 ACL, Hangout, SXSW, Firefly and Wakarusa. They’ve toured with JJ Grey & Mofro, Moon Taxi, Galactic and The Wailers, and recently recorded a session for Audiotree Live.Since the release of their 2015 EP the band has continued their nonstop regiment of touring and writing. Look for new music in 2017.
Waker will be playing Saturday August 5th at 6pm. This performance is part of the Seaport Summer Stage presented by Corona Extra. Located by the Garden Bar, the intimate concerts feature emerging and innovative music artists and DJ’s from around the world.
