Wyland Short Info

Wyland are a four-piece alternative rock band based in a small town outside of the Meadowlands. Their sound, which has elements of atmospheric rock and indie singer-songwriter influence, has received praise for being “Coldplay-esque” and “intense and tasteful melodic rock [that] will resonate with the most endearing Lumineer fan.” CMJ said, “Wyland has an instantly digestible sound".

“Someone important to us once said, that our music makes them feel like a balloon rising up into a neon night, overseeing cities and towns and other vast landscapes. And right before it reaches the outskirts of space, it explodes with all these beautiful sparkles and colorful pieces. That’s probably the best way to describe how we feel when we write these songs.”

In 2015, the band released a couple demos which eventually led them to appear alongside bands like Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, and the Vaccines, to name a few. 

Their latest EP, In a Sea of Things Unsaid, which was released at the beginning of 2016, was received as “one of the strongest releases from a New Jersey band in 2016” by NJ.com. The album was also praised as one of the best of 2016 by publications like Clash Magazine and NKD Magazine.

“Without You,” the first single from In a Sea of Things Unsaid went viral in the first month of its release with over 150k streams on Spotify. The song was also chosen as the grand prize winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, for which the band received over 8k dollars in prizes and an opportunity to record a song live on the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.

Wyland is Ryan Sloan (vocals/guitar/piano), Mauricio Salazar (guitar), Zach Calidonna (bass) and Chris Luna (drums). They are set to release another EP in Spring 2017.
