Every once in awhile a band becomes close enough to say "We're like family". And then there's 10 Talents who "are" family. Call it an atypical journey, but after years of chasing popularity and success in their own respective musical outfits, the three Waglers came together to renounce fame and potential riches by forming this Non-Profit band.
Coming together in the fall of 2015 with no real goal other than to make music and give it away, they've since performed extensively throughout the midwest. Shows have ranged from back yard acoustic appearances to direct support for Grammy nominated artists. However, constants remain. Each song download is free. Each dollar received is used to support the ministry or donated directly to a partner charity. Each life touched is for a higher purpose.
"The first time the idea came up it was forever obvious. Music is a gift and a vehicle to help those in need", bassist and vocalist Eric says. The first merchandise pressed didn't even feature the band name. Instead, a simple quote from Pablo Picasso: "The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away"
After teaming up w/ Drummer Logan Witte, and Keyboardist Jason Aeshliman, and with the help of producers/friends Pete Bishop and Jake Rye (Newsboys, Sanctus Real, Steven Malcolm), the band wrote and recorded 10 Talents EP focusing on molding together a mixture of Indie, Pop, Honesty, Hope and Love. With the release in Spring 2017, they immediately concentrated ambitions on reaching the world.
Most days, home may be a makeshift basement recording studio on a quiet county road in Northern Ohio. But to 10 Talents, home is ultimately where you arrive once the journey is through. This journey is only beginning. Join us.
