Wooden Satellites is a band that strays into electro-pop and darkwave while always keeping one foot firmly planted in pure indie rock. Started in 2008, Wooden Satellites has included many Fort Wayne musicians, but is currently written and performed by founding member C. Ray Harvey. They aspire to write songs with staying power, always reaching for the landmark musical moments that brought them through the common horrors of midwestern living. This is accomplished through the embrace of several sound palettes, mixing male and female lead vocals, traditional rock instrumentation with synthesizers, and bright melodies with somber lyrical content. Wooden Satellites spent the winter of 2010 preparing to release their first professionally recorded album, “Let’s Make Crimes” which includes nine songs that truly encapsulate all of the above.
Wooden Satellites is a beat-driven music project that uses a primary pallet of synthesizers and samples but retains a focus on straightforward songwriting. They have opened for Memoryhouse.
