Waves of Silver was formed in April of 2013 by Ariel Friedman and James Johnson, who started simply by jamming together with no intentions of starting a band. However, after a few weeks of playing together and sharing their first few originals with their bassist, Jack Sundquist, they decided to try their luck at a local open mic. The small crowd there warmly and excitedly received their unique blend of indie rock, folk, and jazz thick with dynamic melodies, interesting time signatures, and thoughtful lyrics. Steve Berkley with his precision timing and funky drum beats would later join the band in 2014 to round out the four piece. These young musicians have a palpable chemistry and delight audiences of all backgrounds!
We LOVE Rifftime!
