Sayla Dobro’s songs hearken seasoned folk-rockers like Beck and Calexico, thoughtfully self-produced and rough around the edges. It’s no surprise that Sayla Dobro has been able to capture such a potent essence - the band’s frontman and lead songwriter Todd Tate’s industry experience runs deep. In the 90's Tate’s main focus was audio engineering at The Blue Room Studios, working on Grammy nominated Latin jazz with Carlos “Patato” Sanchez, and with popular rock artists like Train.
Meanwhile, Guaqueta has a rich musical background of his own. Written and released music with artists: Questions in Dialect, Buddy & The Squids, Mainframe Theory, and Storage 24. He’s collaborated directly with Roy Mitchell-Cardenas (of Mutemath) and Mississippi rapper Kamikaze.
