Finn Wolfhard is one of today’s most in-demand stars, and he may have just set himself up to become one of today’s most in-demand rock stars. Joined by lead guitarist Ayla Tesler-Mabe, bassist Jack Anderson, and drummer Malcolm Craig, Wolfhard creates tried-and-true indie rock music under the moniker of Calpurnia.
Growing up, the four kids became passionate about music while listening to rock icons like David Bowie, the Beatles and Nirvana. After meeting, the band members started practicing in a basement and playing covers of various indie anthems. Calpurnia finally dropped their first single "City Boy" in 2018. Later that year, the band’s debut EP, Scout, was released and is a commanding venture into the history of indie rock, which would be an impressive feat from any band, let alone a group of teenagers.
The band just finished a slew of North American shows, and was just announced to play The Governors Ball music festival this summer.
July 1, 2018 Canada’s greatest export continues to be their music (and grade A maple syrup).
