Sparkwood - Kaleidoscopism- 2007

Sparkwood is an Austin-based power pop band. Centered around the songwriting of vocalist and keyboardist Bart Padar, the band crafts elegant and dynamic musical arrangements ornamented by lush vocal harmonies. In addition to Padar, Sparkwood features the exceptional talents of drummer Mike Reynolds, bassist/vocalist Jonathan Nesvadba, and guitarist/vocalist Mark Doroba. Critics have compared Sparkwood's sound to musical luminaries such as Queen, Jellyfish, Cheap Trick and Fountains of Wayne. The band plays frequently in many Austin venues such as The Continental Club, Hole in the Wall and Ruta Maya. In the past, Sparkwood played series of shows in the Midwest, including the International Pop Overthrow Festival in Chicago.
In the Spring of 2007, Sparkwood signed on to Excellent Records in Japan. Their record, entitled "Kaleidoscopism", was released in April with a healthy reception from Japanese audiences.
