I take a step back and remember that everything happens for a reason. Then I try to find any type of good or positive in the situation and get right to work doing whatever I can to make it better. Sometimes that’s taking a break, or a nap honestly. Sleeping is really great for my mental health. No matter how bad things get, that means they can get that much better, so stay focused and eyes on the prize and keep moving forward.
Kaleido formed in 2011 when the Christina Chriss Band performed on a bill with Robots in the Garden, Joey Fava’s old group. A rapport developed and Kaleido was born.
At the core, Kaleido is reminiscent of the piss-and-vinegar, stadium rock of a young Guns N’ Roses crossed and fused with the lovable, fun and energetic sensibilities of an early No Doubt. Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which quickly gained them notoriety Nationally and in the Detroit music scene.
Kaleido was named Outstanding Alt/Indie/Punk Artist at the 2019 Detroit Music Awards and was a featured performer on WDIV-TV (NBC) Detroit 2017 Annual Fireworks Telecast. The band was recently featured on local PBS show Metro Arts and CBS 62's local music coverage. They were named Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Weekly in 2013 & 2014, and won two Detroit Music Awards in 2015 for "Outstanding Rock/Pop Group" and "Outstanding Rock Recording" for their second independent EP 'Unbreakable'. Kaleido was nominated again in 2017 for their album “Experience” and won “Outstanding Heavy Rock Group”. Their "Experience" album helped grow their fan base both in the US and abroad, debuting @ #11 on Soundscan Top New Artists Albums and #37 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart. The album was tapped as “New and Noteworthy” @ iTunes and Amazon Music and spawned the Active Rock charting "Die Tryin'" – which made it into the Loudwire Video "Battle Royale" Hall of Fame by remaining at #1 for 5 straight weeks.
