Graddai is a six member “PowerSoul” band from Baltimore Maryland originated in 2008. “PowerSoul” music is an artistic collection of soul music with a more aggressive commercial edge, fused with other popular styles of music such as rock, hiphop, pop, jazz, and r&B. The genre was originated in 2008 by the indie American band Graddai who looks to push the genre mainstream.
Graddai separates themselves from today’s cliché image with a unique sense of style that compliments their music ability. This nerdy group of young men pushes the envelope by mocking the current impression of today’s pop culture. Rebelling against what is accepted in society, these guys believe “music is not a fashion, it’s a passion”-Kato Ceaser.
The name “Graddai” is short for graduation day. It demonstrates the day nerds will over come. The day that you’re past efforts determines your future achievements, Judgment day if you will. After being judged and criticized for being your self this is the day that it all matters. The “i” in Graddai is a symbol of solitude within the band.
Kato Ceaser the writer/poetic lyricist and Josh Zeno the writer and melodic vocalist/lead guitar player assembled this band. Accompanied by the sexy soothing saxophone player (Gary Who), the dynamic drummer (Caddi Chris), an intricate pianist (Smokey), and the ground rumbling bass guitarist (Jay Alsina) this band has it all.
