Willamena is a rarity -- a nationally-charting genuine indie band. And with its fifth release The Light Ahead hitting the streets and the airwaves in January, 2015, the #1 rock act from Kalamazoo Michigan is setting out once again to use its award-winning live show and blue-collar work ethic to prove some old wisdom true: a determined underdog will have his day.
Before its release, lead-off single The Other Side of Loneliness debuted at #5 on the Billboard AAA indicator most-added chart (1/17/15), started at #3 in AAA downloads and streams on radio-servicer PlayMPE.com (1/2/15), and jumped straight onto the FMQB AAA top-200 singles chart (1/20/15) - all without professional promotion or a publicist. The EP itself climbed directly to #1 on the Amazon.com Hot New Releases Adult Alternative list (1/17/15). As RadioInfo.com observed, ... its definitely a marketable sound that makes for some hit triple-A playlists... and hot AC/AC stations that wait patiently for their turn... We are keeping our ears on them. So should you. (RadioInfo.com Rock pick of the week 1/14/15). A full band biography links here: http://goo.gl/mcBXtl
