Eau Claire, WI reeks of talent. It has been blessed with the emergence of nationally recognized bands and artists to bring forth the indie scene in recent years that has no doubt been thriving all along, but was never getting the recognition it deserved.
Eau Claire's most recent emergence is Gabe Larson who prefers the moniker Waldemar - the royal name of lines of ancient Scandinavian king's as well as Larson's late grandfather.

Waldemar began quite accidentally as the subject of a song that drew poignant parallels between Larson's own identity and struggles as an artist and the deep generational depression surrounding the life and work of Larson's recently deceased grandfather, Waldemar. Grandpa Wally, as Larson describes, was someone he always wanted to be close to; someone he wanted to understand.

Visions - EP was produced by Larson and Evan Middlesworth (The National) and Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Local Natives and Sufjan Stevens)

The sound of Waldemar is lush, intricate and layered; a vast array of instruments and elements woven tightly together. Oftentimes favoring arrangements closer at times to modern and classical choral composers. This is owed largely to Larson's extensive years studying classical choral music since childhood. Post-80's inspired electric guitar tones, nuanced rhythmic textures from dual drummers, trombone sectionals and choral inspired harmonic vocal arrangements comprise the sonic landscape constructed by Larson's multi-instrumental artistry.
