Call To Attraction (C2A) is a pop/rock/alternative band based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Ryan Wood (Lead Vocals/Guitarist/Songwriter) formed the group in mid 2008 with his brother Dylan Wood (Drums/Vocals). “My signature is combining catchy melodies with tight harmonies in every single song.” says Ryan. Memorable songs and a strong rhythm section solidified the name Call To Attraction in the Pittsburgh music scene. Through many line-up changes, the band came together with members Josh Perrone (Lead Guitar/ Vocals) and Joe Mahoney (Bass/ Vocals). Together, the four members put on an amazing live performance and have the audience singing their songs well after the show.
Call To Attraction’s newest EP, "What Comes Next", has sky-rocketed the band’s popularity nationwide. The 4-track EP, released on February 20th 2012, showcases C2A’s unique and addictive songs for listeners of all ages. This EP was recorded and produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (ZK Productions) in Atlanta, GA. These fantastic producers have worked with bands such as Mayday Parade, Cartel, Every Avenue, All Time Low and We Are The In Crowd. This release is a follow up to This One's For You (Jan '11), Shout It Out (Jan ’10) and Something Like This… (Jan ’09). All albums are currently available on iTunes. Various tracks from all releases have made it to regular rotation on 105.9 The X in Pittsburgh and many radio stations across the country.

"Caught Me Dreaming" showcased Wood's upper range and drummer Dylan Wood's consistency, as the tempo changed multiple times. The four-piece act livened up the dark and hazy Altar Bar to prepare the audience for more even contagious pop cadences.
Our set list changes for each show. If were are playing with similar bands we stay with similar style songs. If we are playing with lighter bands, we throw in our acoustic and piano songs during the set. We can play set lengths up to an hour and a half, while maintaining the energy we put out at the beginning of the set.
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
