Waiting For Monday is a melodic rock band formed by Los Angeles based singer Rudy Cardenas and guitarist/vocalist August Zadra. Brought to the attention of Frontiers by Jeff Scott Soto, the label moved quickly to sign them based on their decidedly modern approach to the chart topping melodies of the likes of Journey, Styx and Foreigner.
Originally from Venezuela, Rudy Cardenas is an incredible vocal talent. His pipes carried him all the way to the finals of American Idol and he has been heard on TV and movies ranging from ‘Family Guy’ to ‘Real Steel’. For five years, he was the power alto for the multi-award winning vocal group, M-pact, who were named Vocal Group of the Year at the 2005 LA Music Awards. More recently, he was the featured vocalist for a Gold-selling album by Hungarian rock band Mr. Zsolt.
August Zadra is best known for handling lead guitar and vocal duties in the solo band of iconic singer Dennis DeYoung. Since the age of 15, guitar playing has been a passion that has taken him from Fairbanks, Alaska to Hollywood, California, where he attended and graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology. He has been in the LA music scene for two decades and is often sought out as a guitarist/vocalist collaborator for writing and recording projects.
The band line-up is completed by Walter Ino (guitar and keyboards), Eric Baines (bass) and Joe Travers (drums).
