The highest objective for every Kairos performance is for their listeners to experience a state of revelation. Kairos creates this experience by mixing ambient melodies with driving rhythms and emotion driven lyrics.
Often compared to bands like Pink Floyd, Muse, Dredg and Tool, Kairos brings a dynamic mix of progressive rock with delicate precision. Typical songs range from 5 to 12 minutes and take the listener through a whirlwind of emotions. Regardless of song length, Kairos continues to have listeners on the edges of their seats and begging for more.
Kairos was formed at the beginning of the millennium by brothers, Jason and Josh Sturm. What started off as a side project, quickly turned into a progressive movement. Fate first appeared when Josh was introduced to drummer, Andrew Rodaniche while attending Penn State University. Drew, who had played in bands growing up in Central America, had come to the States assuming that music was a part of his past. He quickly realized that his instrument would never release its grip on his life. The trio began to write creative and complex material for their first independent album without the presence of a bass player. Fate reappeared again when a young, prodigy named Dominic Misja answered a flyer and quickly filled in the missing musical ingredient. Kairos recorded their first album in 2002, including songs, "Digging through Sand," "Shine," and "Possessions." Just when everything began to settle and take off, Dominic had to leave the group for unforeseeable circumstances. Once again, Kairos would need to search for another bass player to fill in the bottom end. Members of Kairos agreed to take a break from their instruments and re-establish their relationships and character. During this time, fate had once again appeared when Jasons fiance, Shar, picked up the bass guitar. Shar was already experienced in music theory on the piano and often played guitar. After only a couple weeks, it was obvious to the entire band that she could easily fill the missing element. Jason and Shar later married in November of that year before Kairos flew off to Los Angeles to record their first studio album, rethink:reshape (2005). After all four members graduated from Penn State, a decision was to be made about where the band would relocate. Instead of moving to the west coast where the industry is hot, Kairos opted to settle in Pittsburgh, PA. They are currently working very hard to build a fan base and gather a small army of artists and musicians to revive the rock scene in the Steel City. As the name kairos indicates, time and fate have always played a big part in the history of the band, but somehow all the members of Kairos know that fate is not finished with them just yet.
