About
Waldo Poblano is a three-piece band from Edmonton that blends blues, folk, and world music influences with a rock and roll sensibility to thrilling effect.
Dredged from the depths of Edmonton’s only haunted swamp, and raised on yarns of misfits and outcasts, Waldo Poblano weaves lyrical character studies that explore addiction, loss, and the conflict between idealized and demonized personalities. Drawing inspiration from Baroque Folk, Gregorian Blues, and Classical Greco-Roman Bossa Nova, Waldo Poblano blends these influences with a vintage Rock and Roll sensibility to bring a new perspective and incisive wit to tales of hot-ties gone wrong. As one fan described, Waldo plays “fresh, funky and infinitely spreadable tunes - the blue cheese of music.” After releasing his debut solo EP Preserved In Wax in 2018 Waldo was joined by drummer, Ryan Donaldson, and bassist, Gordon Tober, and as a band they started to reimagine Waldo Poblano’s sound to be more energetic and raw. With driving drums and rhythmic bass backing up syncopated guitar, Waldo Poblano delivers a visceral and dynamic live show while maintaining the roots that initially inspired Waldo’s writing. Waldo Poblano recorded a new 5-song EP, Mothballs & Manifestos, which was released on May 29th, 2020.
