Bio

This World Fair is not just the name of a band from Minneapolis. It represents the idea of a truly beautiful earth, the excitement of a global event, the bright parts of an otherwise dark place, and the irony that the world is indeed far from just. It supersedes the notion that a band’s only job is to bring new music to hungry ears. In a generation of social, political, and musical mediocrity, This World Fair have set themselves against the grain.

Poetic and powerful lyrics for the mind; dynamic and dramatic music for the heart. This World Fair’s lyricist and front man, Chris Kalgren, plays piano and guitar, offering a welcomed variety both musically and visually. His voice showcases a large and powerful presence mixed with a vulnerable, near-whisper falsetto. His lyrics inspire listeners with themes of hope amidst desperation and love amidst rejection. Guitarist, DJ House, weaves brilliant and distinct melodies with driving, rhythmic chords through each song. Drummer, Tyler Jorenby, and bass guitarist, George Hadfield, make it seem as though the bass drum were thumping out the bass notes itself. Tight is an understatement.

This World Fair is about making music that is lasting. No tricks, no gimmicks, and no filler. Kings of A&R says, “Think Ben Folds Five, Coldplay, and Travis. Trippy, Dreamy and Atmospheric with hooks.” This World Fair intends to break into the hearts and minds of thousands of listeners well before the nation’s alternative top-40 lists. And although they’ve accomplished the former already, the later is not far away.
