Singer-songwriter Neven Skoro moved to United States from Croatia at a young age to attend school in Fort Myers, Florida. While in school, Neven played guitar in several local rock bands that failed to take off.
Soon after he moved to Sarasota, he met his best friend and the band’s guitarist, Myles Edwin. In the summer of 2010 they recruited bassist Ryan Hurst and drummer Drew Silverman to form a rock band. Aiming to bring the kind of music and shows they loved from the U.K. to the U.S.
With their fusion of 60’s surf rock and post-punk revival, The Wallies are quickly turning heads. Just a few months after forming, a home-demo recording was released which sparked a demand for live shows as well as the attention of local press and radio stations. The Wallies live shows have been described as raw, honest and energetic with the kind of no-frills performances that leave the audiences wanting more.
