A new groove band have established themselves in the Southwest music scene and beyond, THE WILEY ONES blend together a mix of Acoustic, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Blues and many other styles that fill the soul with an entertaining and relaxed vibe. Originally started in 2008 and rooted in Arizona, THE WILEY ONES have evolved into one of the most impressive bands in the Southwest. Their unique-bluesy string style riffs combined with creative lyrical poetry have attracted audiences from Los Angeles to New York – Seattle to Miami.

THE WILEY ONES have shared the stage with many artists from around the world. Over the last two years they have toured around the United States performing on Main Stages and Major Music Festivals (such as Mcdowell Mountain Music Festival, Hempfest) and have provided intimate venues for select groups and parties. Whether they are performing on top of a Bio Diesel Bus in support of the environment, play acoustically at local music venues, big theaters or Major festivals, THE WILEY ONES audiences know that their performances will be exciting, spiritually fun and interactive.

THE WILEY ONES have release two albums, “No 7 Kid” and their recent record “Kill it with Love” produced by multi-platinum producer Gardner Cole. THE WILEY ONES are currently writing and recording their 3rd album.

Selected Quotes:

“The Wiley Ones are a great band with real talent and something to say. The give me hope and faith in the new generation of Ecologically responsible bands.” Gardner Cole (Madonna, Glee, Tina Turner, etc)

“Wiley’s guitar-playing harks back to the hard pick-and-pluck style of players like Nick Drake (minus the morose vibes), but all the songs here are driver by springy reggae beats and positive panache.” – NikiD’Andrea – Phoenix New Times
The Stakes have brought soul to Arizona's hip-hop scene. Their eclectic sound takes root in the precedent of live hip-hop set by The Roots, Kendrick Lamar, and Robert Glasper while building on the social consciousness of backpack rap. With a blend all their own of influences spanning jazz, funk and R&B, The Stakes provide an infectious groove sure to keep your head nodding and feet moving as it resonates through your body and soul. The Stakes have shared the stage with The Internet and Biz Markie and performed at the Viva Phoenix and Apache Lake music festivals.

"The Stakes could write songs about calculus and people would dance to it. Live and on record, the band has a powerful chemistry, creating a potent combination of rap, jazz, funk, and pop touches that sounds totally modern while also harkening back to the golden age of Native Tongues-style hip-hop.

One of the reasons the band is able to expertly weave together so many disparate styles is because of their different backgrounds. While many of The Stakes knew each other before the band came together like Voltron, they couldn’t be more different as individuals. There’s a drummer with no formal training, two rappers, and band members with formal jazz training. Which means their differences are staggering in terms of technique, musical approach, and experience level. But that’s what makes them such a versatile and flexible musical outfit. They can move seamlessly through various genres and switch up their style because they aren’t all drinking from the same well.

After releasing a tight six-song album in 2015, The Stakes are set to release a new album on May 26 at the Rebel Lounge."
