Thunderous applause surrounds as While She Waits takes the stage… This is a common occurrence when this commanding Southern Rock band from Phoenix, Arizona, is introduced.

The band is comprised of four top instrumentalists and a powerhouse lead singer:

  • Tim Rooen, Guitar

  • Matthew Kohlman, Guitar

  • Dave Vessels, Bass

  • Aaron Belk, Drums

  • James Cole, lead singer.

While She Waits is on the rise in the music scene. Their hit single “The Stranger” was nominated for single of the year in the 2014 L.A. Music Awards. With influences spanning from Alice in Chains to Johnny Cash, they have taken Southern Rock to a whole new level.

Their members have toured or played with such national acts as Queensryche, Godsmack, Hoobastank, Fuel, and Linkin Park. Any show with While She Waits proves to be a night of fun as they bring to life their Southern rock sound and come rumblin’ in like a rock and roll freight train. Their music is filled with catchy hooks, powerful lyrics, nice thunderous double bass drums like cannons being set off, amid some crunchy slamming bass lines. From first listen, their music enters, and you literally feel all your senses awaken and you are held captive by their songs.

While She Waits has received radio play on 98 KUPD Phoenix, 105.9 in Alabama, 103.7 The Eagle in Flagstaff, SiriusXM Octane, as well as several internet radio stations. They have endorsements from several big companies including ESP Guitars, Ink Army, Fishman, Larson, Swiss Picks and many more.

Quite frankly, if you haven’t heard of them yet, be prepared to be blown away when they come stomping to a town near you.
