MARK VIKINGSTAD and MICHAEL BORIS come from different spectrums of the Empire State, while KYNDON OAKES hails from the “Land of Oz.” In their travels —following the yellow brick road to “somewhere over the rainbow” in Music City, Tennessee—the trio met in the middle to “lock the lands” and thus, LOCKELAND was formed. What brings these friends together is their love of life, humor and the mutual passion to create music that recalls pages from the past and captures memorable moments of the here and now..
Shaken not stirred, Lockeland is straight-up contemporary country with a throwback twist; the trio’s blend of talents complement one another to “go down smooth” naturally and instinctively. The group’s polished, easy-does-it dynamics, intricate three-part harmonies and simplistic, meaningful storylines are its signature. With a captivating, subtle, sneaking energy, whether in an intimate acoustic setting or a rockin’ full band show, Lockeland stakes its claim on the map to create a memorable experience like no other. From behind the curtain…is…LOCKELAND.
