Maverick Magazine named Lockeland in Top Eight to Watch in 2020! Lockeland is a straight-up contemporary country with a throwback twist; the trio’s blend of talents complement one another naturally and instinctively. The group’s polished; easy-does-it dynamics, intricate three-part harmonies and simplistic, meaningful storylines are its signature. With a captivating, subtle, sneaking energy, whether in an intimate acoustic setting or a rockin’ full band show, Lockeland stakes its claim on the map to create a memorable experience like no other. Since the launch of the trio’s debut single, “Til The Cows Come Home” , which landed in the Top 40 on the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart, Lockeland has appeared on the CMA Spotlight Stage (CMA Fest 2019), opened for Big & Rich on two separate occasions in 2019. The group recently embarked on an international tour (canvassing England and Scotland) where the trio provided direct support for CAM at Millport Music Festival and shared the stage at the Long Road Festival with other artists such as: Kip Moore, Josh Turner, LANCO, Morgan Evans & Logan Mize. Mark Vikingstad is from Long Island, New York, Michael Boris from Apalachin, New York and Kyndon Oakes hails from Independence, Kansas. The trio met in Nashville, the middle, to “lock the lands” and thus, Lockeland was formed. What brings these friends together is their love of life, humor and the mutual passion to create music that recalls pages from the past and captures memorable moments of the here and now. They have released three singles since their debut single of “Til’ The Cows Come Home” in March 2019. “Drive” was released in Sept. 2019 penned by Kyndon Oakes, Mark Vikingstad and Susie Brown and “These Hands” released Nov 1 2019 written by Kyndon Oakes, Mark Vikingstad. The exclusive debut of the current single, “Keep Us Young,” was played Live on WSMV Today in Nashville with official digital release on Feb 14th. The song was written by Kyndon Oakes, Mark Vikingstad and Michael Boris.
