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, Kalamazoo Michigan’s #1 rock act 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 (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’s “Hot New Releases” Adult Alternative list (1/17/15). As observed, “... it’s 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.” ( Rock “pick of the week” 1/14/15). The band’s full biography links here:
