Over the last few years the genre of rock has been pulled in so many different directions, leaving timeless vocal melodies and guitars to become far and few between. Wayland naturally possesses these qualities and more. Formed in 2010, The band was soon signed to Kiefer Sutherland's Iron Works Records by hit singer/ song writer/ producer Jude Cole. Managed by Jesse James Dupree, Wayland released their first single "Welcome To My Head" which experienced high ranking on Mainstream and Active Rock charts. The follow up charting single "Reno" began to showcase Wayland's diverse influences, from huge vocal harmony reminiscent of classic rock icons like Journey and Queen, and thick crunchy guitar riffs and pounding drums leaning on the hard rock side of the spectrum. With the release of 2014's "Get A Little" the band's music video for the song went viral online bringing in massive social media and YouTube numbers, causing the song to hit #6 on ITunes Rock charts. 2016 brought the Active Rock radio hit single "Bloody Sunrise" taking the band into almost 5 straight years of non-stop touring, boasting 250+ shows a year.

45 To Argos is an Alternative Rock band from SW Michigan. Brandon Garrett (Guitar/Vox), Brandon Cromer (Bass) and David Lowe (Drums) work hard to bring you exceptional quality that shines through with every recording and performance. We take pride in our evolving and unique sound, which leaves fans of every genre genuinely intrigued. We love the fact that there isn't another band that has our style or that we can specifically identify with. We want to be known for our own style, which is what makes us unique.
Brandon Garrett (Guitar/Vox) - My passion for music, particularly guitar, began when I was 11 yrs old. I took guitar lessons for 1 yr, but most of my skill was self taught. I was told that I was great on the guitar, but if I could also sing, I would have many more opportunities. So at 15, I began working on my vocals, which I am still doing to this day. I am currently 19 yrs old, a college student, the vocalist, guitarist, and a founding member of 45 To Argos. I plan on continuing to work hard to better myself as a musician, for both myself and my band, so that I can offer my very best to our fans. I'm hoping to be lucky enough to play many shows, meet some wonderful people in my lifetime, and be an inspiration to others.
Brandon romer (Bass)- I have been playing music from the age of 11 or so, and eventually joined the school band playing percussion. Over time, I developed a large interest in music and picked up some guitar and piano over the years. Nothing struck my interest as much as bass, so I started studying swing, funk, and a bit of rock and metal. I'm excited to be the newest member of 45 To Argos and cannot wait to see what the future holds.
David Lowe (Drums)- I first started playing music when I was 4 years old. I began on guitar, and gradually turned my attention towards drumming, playing my first gig at 6 years old. As I got older, I grew more serious about my playing, but I had always known music was what I wanted to do with my life. After meeting Brandon in September of 2015, he and I began writing songs together, alongside playing in Lake Michigan College’s jazz and rock ensembles. I have a very large background in classic rock and blues, but am open to playing all styles of music, from rock to country, jazz, and everything in between. I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to play with such great musicians and look forward to seeing what the future holds for us as a band.
