Background:

The Saldivar brothers Lee and Rudy had walked away from the music business in 1994, after spending their entire lives in the music industry. Their experience culminated in operating their own small label (Blue Moon Records) from 1988 to 1994. They decided to form Meridian 65 in 2010.

With all members hailing from the San Diego area, the band was grown over a two-year period, initially working as a cover act. Describing their music as “alternative independent pop,” their diverse influences collectively range to artists as from Tony Bennett to Pink Floyd. According to the group, “The music, while complex, is also somewhat simple in that each piece is designed to appeal to the widest popular audience, containing elements of folk, rock, and pop music.”

Their full-length Savage Skies was released in 2012, with a followup called Timeless released in summer 2014.
