Meet ERLAND—featuring Erland Wanberg, Nate Keezer, Michael Moon and Mark Srdanov—a folk-rock band from Sanata Barbara. Their debut album "On Our Side" (2013) started as an EP for the singer-songwriter Erland, but after linking up with his current bandmates, he knew instantly that there was no more conituing as a solo act. The album was produced by Erland's brother-in-law, singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon (Jack's Mannequin / Something Corporate). Several of the songs are the product of an epic family cross-country road trip.  

From discussing "Fall to Fly" to  performing "Working For Free" the group has a natural chemistry both on and off the stage. Keep them on your radar — you won't want to miss their next album "Southern Pacific" — or their next show in LA for that matter.
